Cleaning Your Mahogany Furniture
The name Mahogany refers to trees or wood from a family of hardwoods called Swietenia Mahogoni, variants of which can be found in many countries of the world. Mahogany furniture is available in many different styles suitable for every room in a home. There are instructions to cleaning your mahogany furniture. Firstly, polish mahogany furniture frequently, at least once a week. Avoid using too much furniture polish; in this case less is more. It’s the actual motion and elbow grease that counts. Spray oil or wax based polish onto a soft clean lint-free cloth and rub the furniture gently. Remove excess polish by wiping the furniture gently with a soft clean lint-free cloth dampened with mineral spirits until the excess polish is gone. Fill in scratches by rubbing a walnut into the scratch. Be sure to rub with the grain of the wood for best results.
Another method is to rub a Q-Tip along the scratch that has been dipped in iodine to darken it. Mix mayonnaise and white toothpaste in equal parts and rub it into the mahogany furniture with a soft clean cloth. This will help to remove rings from glasses. Remove water stains by rubbing lemon oil onto the stain and allowing it to sit overnight. In the morning, wipe the area clean of any excess oil.
