Home Living : October 27th 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 27, 2009 Easy cleaning tips HOMELIVING Past and present Sally Beresford Antiques dealer and table designer The care of furniture is close to my heart and founded in my childhood -- a task my mother and I enjoyed. With the secret ingredient of elbow grease, we brought care and life to the furniture. Here are some tips on caring for your favourite things: Environmental conditions canplay havoc with timber, avoid drying-out problems byleaving discreet pots of water to rehydrate the space. Airconditioningand centralheating create swings in temperature, causing shrinkage and a dry appearance. Be moderate with use. Avoid placing pieces in direct sunlight as this will dry and fade the timber. Care tips I give to clients for their newly made tables and other pieces are simple: apply a soft wax such asLiberon every six months. A soft bison wax is less stiff than bees wax and a pleasure to work into the timber, buffing with a soft cloth. Rotate pieces if possible as timber fades over time and this evens the process. Always avoid spray-on polishes, which create long-term problems with residue films and drying of the timber. Over time, a soft rub with triple 000 steel wool will remove wax build-up and give a cleanslate for new waxing. Other tips for hard jobs are: Cloudy glass and crystal--wash in mild soapy water with white vinegar, rinse and dry immediately. Never put them in the dishwasher. Polish copper by sprinklingacut lemon with salt and rubbing it over the surface. Also excellent for stainless steel. Cleaning candle wax from crystal and glass can be a real fiddle, but we all enjoy the romance of candlelight. To avoid scratching place pieces in the freezer for an hour or so and the wax will simply snap off.
