Cleaning wooden furniture can be quite tricky. But not anymore! Here're five tips for cleaning them right.


White mark by water or steam:

Spread some mayonnaise or oil on a tissue paper. and press it lightly on the white water mark. Leave it on the stain for about 15 minutes and then check. Reapply if the mark remains. A little toothpaste on the cloth can also do wonders.


To remove dust:

Wipe the furniture gently. Do not scratch the hard stains.


Polishing and shining:

Polish furniture is to be cleaned with liquid furniture polish or with wax. To add shine, rub it with vinegar before polishing.


Odour removal from cabinets:

To remove odour, you can fill the drawer with ground coffee and leave it overnight, use baking soda and leaving it in for several days. If the odour persists, leave a bowl of bleach inside and carefully remove it, but only after a few days.


Weather condition:

It is best to keep your furniture indoors. Use a coat of oil for extra protection. You may use teak oil, which is best for this purpose.
