Mahogany Furniture and Wood Care

Remove Water Spots from Polished Mahogany Wood
Water makes a filmy grey spot. If not too deep, rubbing with the fingertip will remove the spot. Otherwise, use a small piece of cheesecloth tightly wrung out of hot water with 2 or 3 drops of household ammonia in it. Rub lightly and quickly with the cloth; then instantly rub with a soft oiled cloth. Finally go over the whole surface with oil. Rub until all extra oil is used. Keep coasters under glasses and guard wood floors from dripping umbrellas!

Wash Varnished Wood Mahogany, Walnut, Maple, Oak and Pine
Remove all dust first. Use cheesecloth for washing and wiping woods.
Prepare 1 quart boiling water, 3 tablespoons lemon oil and 1 tablespoon turpentine. ..Dip cheesecloth in this solution and wring out well. Wash a small space at a time. Wipe immediately with dry cheesecloth. Carvings may be cleaned with soft brush and this solution. This wash polishes because it cleans. Protect wall paper and cushions with folded paper so the oil doesn't splatter over them.

Remove stuck paper off of Mahogany wood furniture?
Do not try to scrape the paper off. Dab some linseed or sweet oil on the paper. Let the oil soak for a bit, and then remove the paper by rubbing it with your fingers

Cleaning Wicker
To Preserve wicker, spray with water. This will remove dust and keep reed  from drying and cracking. Cold water will not harm real wicker, varnish or paint. Wicker furniture may be brightened with furniture wash and wiped dry. Clean with soft brushes in deeper cracks and wipe dry. You may put the furniture in the bath tub for spraying!

Piano Polish
Use equal proportions of turpentine, linseed oil and vinegar. Mix well.
Rub in well with a piece of flannel cloth. Polish with a piece of Chamois cloth.  This treatment will remove the dingy appearance that age gives to fine woods! Try it!

Remove Alcohol Spots From Mahogany Wood
Alcohol in spilled perfume, medicine, etc dissolves varnish. Rub at once with fingers and then rub with a soft non-lint cloth and lemon oil.
