Looking for a quick, effective, and safe solution to clean wood furniture or cabinets? Consider using microfiber cloths to remove dust, dirt, grime, even mold! The smooth, small fibers of microfiber will ensure no damage comes to your wood furniture, while also effectively absorbing any dirt and water on the surface. Here are the most effective ways of cleaning wood furniture:
USE A MICROFIBER CLOTH TO DUST
Dusting your wood furniture with a microfiber cloth is the easiest thing in the world. The split fibers of microfiber help to instantly trap dust as you wipe down your furniture. You won’t need any extra cleaning products or even water for a dust-free home! When dusting make sure you are using an all-purpose type microfiber towel (Fluffy) type. The longer “fluffier” fibers of these towels has extra space to hold dust.
In case you were wondering why microfiber is so good at trapping dust, most dust particles range in size from 1 to 100 micrometers in diameter. A microfiber is smaller than 10 micrometers, and high quality microfiber used in cleaning usually ranges between 1 and 5 micrometers. This means that microfiber is able to effectively pick up most dust particles. Microfiber is also positively charged, so it clings to negatively charged dust particles!
REMOVING STICKY GRIME
On the other hand, you’ll want to dampen your microfiber towel with a bit of water before wiping grime from your wood furniture. Water is the universal solvent and will help loosen-up and dissolve the grime and the microfiber will suck up the dirt. Be sure to finish the job by wiping a dry microfiber over the area you cleaned, as you don’t want any remnants of water damaging your wood. This is the simplest and safest way for how to clean grime off wood furniture.
