Do you want to know how to protect your wood furniture in a natural way?


               Wood is a raw material that can last a lifetime if taken care of properly. Most furniture is made of natural wood is known for its very high durability. Sofa, chairs, dressers, tables and bed frames are some of the furniture commonly made from wood. Wood furniture is an investment that can be passed down to generations of cared for and maintained. Even the highest quality of wood is prone to scratches, abrasions and in time can become dull and lifeless. 

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF WOOD FURNITURE

1. Always use coasters when placing glasses or mugs on wood tables. Avoid setting hot food directly on wood furniture without protection to avoid rings and heat damage. Use a trivet to protect the table from heat. Use placemats or tablecloths to protect the table from food and drink spills. 

2. Do not place wooden furniture under the sun or near vents and fireplaces. Direct light and heat can damage and fade the wood. Exposure to light and heat can also dry out and shrink the wood, causing cracks. 

3. Frequent dusting is important to prevent the build-up of dust. Dust and other airborne particles can build a filmy layer on wood that scratches the surface. Always use a soft cloth to avoid damage on the surface. 

4. Sometimes, dusting is not enough. Use a damp cloth to wipe the wooden furniture. Don’t use all-purpose cleaners on wood because they can damage the finishing of the furniture.

5. Protect your furniture with wood polish. Most commercial polishes and sprays have petroleum distillates or silicone oil that gives a fresh and shiny finish and protection for the wood. However, make sure not to use too much product. Applying too much polish can cause a build-up that combines with dirt. This creates a dull, sticky film on the surface. 

HOW TO MAKE WOOD POLISH

1. In a glass spray bottle mix the olive oil and vinegar.

2. Add 10 drops of orange essential oil and shake well.

3. Apply to a microfiber cloth.

4. Wipe wood surfaces clean. 


               This wood polish using orange essential oil is ideal for cleaning and preserving wood. Vinegar can easily remove dirt. Olive oil and orange essential oil absorb deeply into the wood structure and moisturize it. This will protect the wood furniture from excessive drying and cracking. Orange essential oil is also antiseptic and deodorizes the furniture with a fresh scent.
