Wooden furniture is easy and affordable to maintain. I love have wooden furniture in our home as they are so child friendly. When you have a growing family, the first thing you need to do is to make sure your house is child friendly and it is a lot easier to do when you have wooden furniture, unlike when your home is filled with glass furniture.
I recently came across Sheesham Furniture range and it is an excellent example of a beautiful wood furniture range. The lovely collection is made from highest quality Indian Sheesham and it is filled with a variety of great looking furniture, from bookcases to coffee tables. There is a piece of furniture for everyone in the range.
If you have wooden furniture and you are wondering how best to clean your wooden furniture, here are some cleaning tips you may find very handy.
Start with a damp microfiber cloth
Microfibre cloth is so useful. I always make sure I have some of them in my kitchen cupboard for when I need to clean. Always start cleaning your wooden furniture by wiping with a damp microfibre cloth to get rid of dust and dirt. The cloth should just feel damp and not wet so you don’t damage your furniture. Once you wipe with a damp microfibre cloth, you need to quickly wipe the furniture again with a dry cloth to remove any wetness.
Use dish washing liquid
Dish washing liquid can be used in other ways in the home apart from washing dishes. I always add them to my cleaning cloth when I need to quickly clean a messy part in our house and it works great. To get rid of dirt and grime, add a few drops of dish washing soap with some water. That usually gets rid of any gummy or sticky residue. Once the area is clean, wipe again with a dry cloth to get rid of any wetness.
Avoid polish sprays on wooden furniture
Polish sprays smell great and may clean very well but they are not best when it comes to cleaning wooden furniture because they usually leave a residue. However, you can apply a good wood furniture polish sparingly to add some shine. Polishing your wood a few times a year is ideal. Always ensure you do your cleaning in a well ventilated room, especially when you are using cleaners or sprays.
Are you a fan of wooden furniture? What are your thoughts?
Really great tips, thank you. It is important to look after your furniture and worth taking the time to keep it in good condition
Glad you like the tips Nikki.
I am a big fan of chunky wooden furniture. It’s so classy and the dust is less obvious on them (oops). Thanks for the tips
You are right 😊
I didn’t realise that you could use polish on wooden furniture. Time to switch to a microfibre cloth too!
Yes it works great 😊
Love those tables! We just got a new set of wood table and chairs so this will be so useful!
