One of the things to focus on is removing the water spots and stains from the wooden chairs or tables or furniture (in general). Wooden furniture has this issue of water stains, and these are quite visible. So, the cleaning and maintenance routine must entail ways to clean the water stains. And in particular, water rings are common. These water rings typically form when someone had put a hot or cold drink in a mug, directly on the table, without using a coaster. We all have had the issue.

You can start by applying some non-gel toothpaste on the spot and then rubbing the same with a soft cloth. Make sure you use gentle rotation on the spot and you continue to repeat the activity till the point you see the stain fading. What must you do, if the stains are too stubborn. For that, you can make use of a mix of baking soda and toothpaste. And while you are at it, make sure that the amount or the proportion of the two remains the same. In order to wipe the toothpaste off you can use a clean damp cloth and then you can use a dry one to dry it off thoroughly.

A major challenge that most people tend to face while cleaning wooden furniture is the years old layers of old polish on the surface. Removing this decades old buildup polish is one excellent way to revitalize any antique. You can make use of an excellent compound to fix the problem- and that is, tea. You take two tea bags and steep the same in boiling water. Once the solution is boiled, let it cool down to room temperature. Once it is at room temperature, you make use of a soft cloth to dampen the same with the tea and then apply the same on the wood. Use the tea-dampened piece of cloth to wash the polish off the surface which has accumulated on the surface. This is made possible because of the tannic acid which is found in the tea, which is an exceptional compound for maintaining wood. The lustre or the restored shine of the wooden surface, after you are done, will definitely surprise you. Tannic acid is an excellent agent for removing the old layers of accumulated wax.
