How to Properly Clean Your Wood Furniture?
Are you ready to start cleaning? Then remove any objects that are sitting on the wooden furniture. You want to clear up and prepare the surface.
Then remove the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Don’t apply an all-purpose cleaner then wipe with a cloth. You will spread the dust all over your home plus all-purpose cleaners aren’t suitable for wood!
Then grab a spray bottle and add half a cup of vinegar and fill the rest with water. Spray the mixture on a cloth and start wiping in a circular motion.
Once you have covered the entire wooden furniture, grab another cloth and go over the surface so you remove the moisture from the DIY cleaner.
Then it’s time to polish the wood so it doesn’t lose its shine and sparkle. I like to use olive oil but you can also use vegetable oil. Both will do the trick. Mix equal parts of the oil with white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray to a cloth and start buffing the wood.
