How to Remove Growned-In Dirt from a Wood Coffee Table
Having a wood coffee table in your home adds character and class to any room. But it can be hard to keep your wood coffee table looking its best, especially when it comes to dirt that seems to be embedded in the wood. Growned-in dirt can make your wood coffee table look drab and dull, so today we’re sharing some tips on how to remove it:
1. Vacuum the Dust
Before you begin removing ingrained dirt from the wood, you should vacuum the surface first. This will help to remove any surface dust and make the cleaning process easier.
2. Prepare your cleaning solution
Mix together a cleaning solution of mild detergent in warm water. Make sure you use a mild detergent, as harsh soaps and detergents can damage the wood. Alternatively, you can also use natural cleaning solutions such as white vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice.
3. Clean with soft cloth
Dampen a soft cloth in the cleaning solution and gently wipe the surface of the wood. Use circular motions to help lift dirt and grime off the wood.
4. Rinse and Dry
Once you’ve lifted the dirt off the wood, use a damp cloth to rinse the surface. Finally use a soft, dry cloth to dry the surface.
5. Treat the wood surface
Finally, to help keep your wood looking its best, use a wood preserver to protect and nourish the wood.
Keep these simple tips in mind and you’ll soon have your wood coffee table looking as good as new!
