Furniture and Mattresses

027 5000x3000 all-free-download.com 3320544To clean wood furniture sometimes it is only necessary to wipe it with a dry cloth or a duster. However wood must be treated so it ages well keeping the color and brightness of the first day. To do this, it is best to treat it with natural products, as varnishes and enamels only mask the natural properties of wood and it eventually looks ugly; crumbling and peeling, giving furniture a rundown look.
It isn’t enough to keep furniture clean, but it is also necessary to apply a coat of wax or linseed oil periodically so the wood is properly nourished. There are a variety of oils and other natural products that are excellent nutrients for most types of wood and they provide good protection and keep your furniture looking as good as new.
Even if you take good care of your furniture and use all the right products, daily use and the pass of time cause some damage that if it isn’t major, can be solved at home with a few simple tricks. Limping legs, cracks, chips, or dents, are some of the more frequent problems, but they are easy to fix.
The upholstery is often the most difficult to care for and keep clean, especially if there are children and pets in the home. In sofas and chairs, dust and dirt accumulates in the least accessible corners. They are also highly exposed to stains or discoloration from everyday use or exposure to the sun through the windows.
If you care for your furniture and upholstery properly, you will not have to replace them for a long time unless you want to redecorate your house.

Wood Furniture:

  • To clean wood furniture use a rag moistened with water and vinegar. Pass the rag over the furniture gently and let it dry. With a piece of dry cloth rub the furniture to make it shinny.
  • Use strong tea to give new color to faded furniture pieces. When the tea dries apply 2 coats of clear hairspray and then seal it with wax. Your furniture will look great.

Rattan Furniture:

  • Rub rattan furniture with a lemon (cut in half) and then pass a clean, dry rag. They will look clean and shiny.
  • Use mentholated alcohol to clean your rattan furniture.
  • Wash it with soapy water with salt. Dry thoroughly with cotton rags.
  • Use a piece of suede to clean them daily.

Varnished Furniture:

  • You can clean varnished furniture with hair shampoo. Dry with cotton rags.
  • Clean varnished furniture with a piece of raw potato. It will make it very shinny.

Noisy Furniture:

  • To stop those annoying noises cabinets make when you open them, take a bar of soap and rub it over the hinges and in those places where wood touches wood.

Upholstery stains:

  • Remove fresh stains from upholstery using shaving cream.

Dustless cushions:

  • Wrap the entire cushion in a wet fabric. Shake well. The dust will adhere to the wet fabric.

Prevent scratches on your furniture:

  • When you place ornaments on a table, glue a piece of felt under the ornament so your table won’t get scratched.

Wax stains on furniture:

  • To prevent wax spills and stains from candles, put them in the refrigerator several hours before using them and they won’t spill as much. Take them out just before you need to use them.
