Don't discard them, use these tips to restore shine of your old furniture

The stains on wooden furniture could be removed using mineral oil and lemon juice.

Do you plan to get rid of your old furniture and replace them with stylish new ones? However, furniture experts say that you need to think twice before chucking your good old furniture as they may interest someone else. People who love adding a unique old world charm to their houses often look for furniture that dons older/traditional designs or features. So, instead of buying new furniture, you could revamp them by making them ‘glow’ again. Wooden furniture is easily prone to termite attacks or may get dusty or stained. The old furniture may lose their lustre with time and make them look dull. Here are some amazing tips and tricks to give a makeover to your old pieces of furniture.

The stains on wooden furniture could be removed using mineral oil and lemon juice. Besides getting thoroughly cleaned, the furniture would regain its lost glow as well. The lemon juice would function as a cleaning agent which removes even the most stubborn stains. You could dip a cloth in this mixture and wipe the furniture with it.

Petroleum jelly too could add shine to the furniture. Apply some petroleum jelly on dry furniture and rub it using a clean cloth.

Wooden furniture could also be cleaned using turpentine and bees wax. This could effectively prevent termite attacks. Interestingly, mayonnaise, which is used as a salad dressing or a delicious dip, could be used to clean furniture. Olive oil too could easily add shine to old wooden furniture.
