I spent some time with relatives this last year, I must say, I enjoyed visiting with family and getting caught up on some topics, maybe that’s the only thing it is really about, but I do have to speak my mind!
Spending most of my life in the cleaning industry, mixing and formulating different products for companies and for our retail customers, which is my life desire. I must say, it always astounds me to visit someone, especially family and friends, where they can’t spend just a little time to make sure that even the kids rooms were presentable. I really didn’t see 3 square inches of floor space in this room, there was so much crap all over, let alone having a half way clean bathroom, we set a beautiful table for Thanksgiving, along with about 20 boxes of extra junk in the corner of the dining room, it was a wonder we all fit!
It made me wonder, how some people get to the point where they just don’t care, nor do they teach their own children how to be grown adults and enter the world of the living, to function for themselves! Most the time they end up with no skills on how to keep a clean home, nor do they even care.
Holidays, some dread them, others get a running start to make sure friends and family can see out of their living room windows, set on a clean toilet seat, how about a clean kitchen cabinet door, so their hand doesn’t stick to the wood?
I have a few good cleaning tips to get you started.
Not only are these brushes great for auto use, they are awesome around the house. Say you spill red wine on the carpet and you are able to scrub away most of the stain. That is where the drill brushes come in.
Spray the area down with some spot cleaner (Husky Spot Cleaner) I have found to be the most effective. Next attach the drill brush to your cordless drill. Slowly engage the drill on a low speed then increase the speed.
Keep the stained area rather moist while using the drill.
Imagine my surprise when I read an article published by Eichler Homes about restoring Mahogany Wood Paneling with the Touch of Oranges Wood Cleaner and Touch of Beeswax Wood Preserver!
First let me explain who Eichler Home, between 1949 and 1966, Joseph Eichler's company, Eichler Homes, built over 11,000 homes in nine communities in Northern California and homes in three communities in Southern California.These homes were famous for their Mahogany Wood Paneling., most of the homes had this paneling installed throughout the majority of the home.
I have been staring at my Hawaiian wood chess table for the past year looking at how dry it is and slowly watch it look dryer and dryer. Some of wood furniture in the house I can look right past and not take a second look. There is something about this piece that makes me look twice.
It is a piece that I want to protect and preserve for years to come. The question is how do I Clean and protect my wood furniture so that it will last the test of time and grandkids.
