3 January 2011 1,291 views No Comment

In order to keep your home looking nice, you really need to take care of the things in it. There are many different tips that you can find to take proper care of your furniture. Here you will find some of the best ones available.

Tip Number One – Use a Soft Paste Wax

If you have wooden furniture then it would be a good idea to protect it with a soft paste wax. You will only need to apply a very small amount. To use the paste simply place it on the furniture and then leave it for 5-10 minutes. Buff the paste off with a soft cloth and then leave it for another 60 minutes. This time buff the furniture roughly. The results that you are left with should last you up to six months.

Tip Number Two – Apply Show Polish as a Touch Up

You can use shoe polish to touch up any marks on furniture. You could even use a marker pen if it is the same color as the furniture. You will find that the feet on furniture will often get chipped.

Tip Number Three – Use a Mild Natural Cleaning Solution

Some chemical cleaners can be a little too harsh for your furniture. A good idea would be to use a mixture of mild soap and warm water. The only thing that you need to watch out for is drenching the furniture with water. Only use a little water to avoid this problem.

Tip Number Four – Don’t Rush Into Restoring Old Furniture

Often it can be a great idea to try and restore old looking furniture. However in some cases it can be a bad idea. If the furniture is antique then it would be a good idea to get an expert opinion before you touch it.
