White furniture has always been immensely popular amongst home and business owners for its incredible ability to provide an absolutely clean and elegant finish to any kind of interiors. Unfortunately, at the same time, it is also worth mentionable that white is one of the most difficult colours, offering challenges to be kept in pristine condition.
If you have some kids or pets in your household, then the challenges of keeping your furniture clean will surely multiply.
Here are 3 important cleaning tips which can help you to clean your white décor in a quick and effective manner-
- Clean your white furniture on weekly basis
First and foremost, it is quite imperative for you to clean your white furniture on weekly basis to prevent everyday muck and debris from staining your furniture. Start the job by vacuuming the furniture at least once in a week. If you are having pets at home, then it would be good for you to apply a lint brush on your white furniture to check build-up of dirt. White wooden, plywood or plastic furniture can be very easily cleaned using a dampened towel.
- Clean the stains caused by wine and coffee immediately
Any simple stains on your white furniture must be blotted immediately with a neat and clean towel, and also a clean cloth which has been dampened well with cold water. Any of them must be immediately applied to the stain. The stains that come from wine and coffee must be immediately treated with a paste which is prepared with baking soda and water.
Cornstarch and grease stains can easily be treated using a poultice which is made from cornstarch. Before cleaning, the solution must be left in place for around 15 minutes, and the affected zone should then be cleaned using normal water.
- Prepare a cleaning agent at your own
To clean your white furniture, a very effective cleaning solution which you can prepare at your own, consists of ½ cup of good quality mild detergent and ¼ cup of clean water in a bowl. The mixture must be shaken until it gets foamy. You can apply this paste on the white furniture and leave for 10 minutes, and it should be cleaned off with a clean, damp rag. You need not worry at all due to the watery nature of the cleaning agent which you are using on the white furniture. It can do no harm to the pieces of furniture which are made from high quality waterproof plywood in India.
