Wood Furniture Care - Manchester Wood

Dealing with dust bunnies on your Manchester Wood furniture?

Here is a wood furniture care solution:

When approaching wood furniture care, use a damp cloth and high-quality wood cleaner. Check out Seventh Generation’s Wood Cleaner using USDA Certified Biobased Product fragranced with essential oils and botanical extracts from lemon and chamomile. You could also try Method’s Wood for Good Cleaner, another non-toxic, plant-based cleaner that smells like almond.

Apply monthly, or as you see fit, to a clean cloth, and polish in the direction of the grain, then buff. For regular maintenance, a damp cloth does the trick.

Something to avoid: Don’t use household polishes with products that contain petroleum distillates or silicone, common ingredients that can leave residue.

Wood furniture is beautiful, and something we majorly enjoy in our house, as well as design and build for our customers across the country. With a little bit of maintenance, you’ll have your wood furniture looking brand new for years to come.

    my dad and mom had us kids helping with chores at an early age, the way we were taught to dust was with an old cloth sprinkled with water. When it was a wood finish mom would come along after dusting with a citrus oil to keep them refreshed. Caring for furniture allows us to even pass them down as heirlooms
