Cleaning a wooden jewelry box
Maintaining wood is not always easy: you have to take into account the type of wood, you don't always have the necessary products, you are afraid of making an irreparable mistake... In truth, it is not as delicate as you think! You just need to follow a few tips.
First of all, it is important to never use an abrasive sponge and to prefer soft cloths, which will not scratch the wood. It is also advisable not to rub the wood too hard.
You should also know that a simple wet cloth is usually enough to clean your box on a daily basis.
However, if the stains are more stubborn, you must pay attention to the type of wood: if your jewelry box is made of raw wood, soapy water (a little Marseille soap) and a soft cloth should be enough to remove the dust and the few grease stains that may appear. If the wood is varnished or waxed, avoid chemicals and use water mixed with white vinegar on a cloth. If this is not enough, you can use linseed oil mixed with turpentine and apply it to the wood with a wool cloth. It is important to dry well afterwards. For a painted wooden box, to be cleaned with soapy water, it is necessary to be even more careful about drying: water can damage the paint.
In case of a scratch on painted wood, it is preferable to apply a new paint directly. For varnished wood, there is a simpler solution: you can use popote, a lacquer product to put in small quantities on a piece of cloth: make small circular movements with the cloth and then pass a clean cloth to clean the product.
A wooden jewelry box is therefore a jewelry storage that is hard to do without, combining practicality with decoration and elegance !
