1.Wood (polish and scratch repair)
Here are two options to clean, polish and restore scratches on wood surfaces.
• Mix half a cup of vinegar with a half cup of olive oil. Using a soft cloth, rub it on your wooden furniture.
• Rubbing coconut oil onto wooden furniture will keep the wood looking its best and will hide the scratches.
Anobium Punctatum, generally known as the common furniture beetle or woodworm, has been perceived to be the main cause of damage to wood/timber. The adult beetles emerge from infected timber in the spring, leaving a small round hole of approximately 1-2mm in diameter on the surface of the wood.
If you have noticed these small holes on your wooden furniture then regular treatments with paraffin or turpentine are recommended. Special attention should be given to the back and undersides of the furniture, especially joints and unpolished parts. When the furniture is already infected, the grubs‘ activity is indicated by fresh holes sometimes with a very fine powder falling from them. In this case, either benzene or carbon tetrachloride may be injected directly into the holes.
