The fluctuating UK weather may not have done much to dampen our spirits, but more than likely may have contributed to our wooden furnishings – however, Casa Bella Furniture is on hand to advise proud furniture owners the best way to tend to their beloved household items.
Whilst crimes against furniture can include damage such as water rings and scratches, the most common type is faded stains; giving the appearance that modern furniture is older than it really is. But instead of relegating damaged furniture to the tip, there are steps to take to rescue these furnishings.
A spokesperson from Casa Bella Furniture commented: "Many people seem to think that a lot of the stains incurred on their furnishings is irreparable – but this isn’t so. There’s several tricks to the furniture trade many are unaware of, for example, rubbing a walnut onto the dinged area for a week will help restore it to its original state – a blessing for items such as vintage furniture."
Another trick is to apply a mixture of oil and vinegar onto a piece of muslin, which will help inject some shine into dried and worn out furniture. For some real zest, it’s recommended to use orange or lemon peels; but ensure this is only applied onto jungle wood – as the acid in citrus fruits will leave behind a white scarring effect on other wooden furnishings.
"One unusual remedy is mayonnaise, which is especially effective in the case of glass rings in the absence of a coaster," added the spokesperson. "Simply smear a little bit of mayonnaise on the ring stain, and after half an hour wipe it away using a wet sponge. For damp furniture, I suggest talcum powder – it really works! Not only will it get rid of the sodden parts but it’ll also accentuate the furnishing – making it look brand new."
A cost-effective and clever way to maintain furnishings, wood restoration tricks are a fantastic way of adding longevity to valuable household furniture. For more tips on how to get the most out of wooden furniture, visit Casa Bella Furniture now – or alternatively, call 01225 66 78 78.
