Cleaning Wood Furniture - Special Cleaning The type of material, and the type of finish applied
on the surface, determine what can be safely used to clean a piece of furniture. Some can be cleaned with a mild detergent (hand dishwashing liquid) and water. Other materials or finishes would be damaged by water and detergent. Some can be cleaned by solvent-based waxes and polishes; other materials or finishes would be damaged. Abrasives (powders and scouring pads) will damage most surfaces, and should not be used unless specifically recommended. Save care labels that come with most new furniture and follow the rules.
Before using any commercial cleaner, wax or polish,
read all the label to be sure it can be used on material or finish and how to apply. Always test a new product on an inconspicuous place to see how it affects the finish before using to clean the furniture. Follow all safety cautions on label, especially with solvent-based waxes and cleaners. Don't wax, polish, or clean more often than needed. Don't use more product than needed for the job.
Solvents are flammable so don't use near any flame, spark, or pilot light and don't smoke. Work in well- ventilated room, in warm weather you can open windows, and don't breathe fumes. Keep off your skin. Wear rubber gloves, and afterward wash in hot suds and air dry. Air- dry cloths used in cleaning to evaporate the solvent before disposing. If you want to wash cloths, air dry, then wash separately in hot suds, and air dry; never dry in dryer.
