Wooden furniture is good for minimalist design. You can start cleaning your wooden furniture preferably early in the season, in the spring.
Start by cleaning the wood with a stiff bristle brush with warm water and black soap.
Brush well the surface and insist on the recesses. If the brush is difficult to pass, do not hesitate to use an old toothbrush.
Then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Some well-encrusted tasks may still be present, a trick is to remove them by rubbing a cork or even an eraser. If it still resists it will then be necessary to arm yourself with elbow grease and sandpaper in order to sand the surface. A good sanding will have the property of opening the pores of the wood and then ensuring better penetration of treatment liquids.
Sanding creates dust, the passage of a damp sponge will remove residues of dust.
If the sight of slightly dimmed furniture displeases you, then use a specific product gritter. Apply in a generous layer, leave for a few minutes and brush vigorously before drying. Rinse with water and allow to dry.
The last step is to use a brush with one or two layers of teak oil on the exotic woods or specific stain on other species. These substances create a natural protection and return their original colors to different types of wood.
This operation can be done twice a year if necessary.
Note: wicker or rattan furniture will need special treatment. The cleaning will be done first by vacuuming, then in the same way as for other woods. Then apply linseed oil all over the surface and shine with a soft cloth.
