Normally when we see that our furniture is getting some bad looking scratches and when we see that it will take a lot of money to fix it then we normally sale those things, but what if the things is very precious and has so many memories attached with, then? I will tell you, we fix it and we work all together as a team and we make that thing absolutely new, so here is what you need to do.
Normally when we see some simple and slight kind of Scratches in wood which make the piece perfectly a piece of furniture we can try some simple things to make it new like a cup of tea, first of all you can try to place a tea bag I mean a black tea, not herbal or green tea in a mug and spoon a few tablespoons of hot water onto the bag and let the tea leaves soaked the water for 2 to 3 minutes and now you just need to dab the tea onto the scratches with a cotton swab and keep a paper towel with you and keep removing the excess with that and that will make it better.
Next thing that you can try is Iodine and that is for the fresh scratches and for that you just need to rub freshly brake iodine and rub it over your freshly scratched wood and let it get absorbed by the wood and then wipe the excessive one with the paper towel and the good thing about that is it doesn’t stain the wood around the scratch.
If your wood is row looking or finely shaped without any pant on it and it is on its real color then you can rub out surface scratches and for that you just need to make a mixture of mineral oil and pumice and you can get these things from any hardware and paint stores and you need to get a extra-fine-grade steel wool to rub the mixture into the scratched area and that will make your wood extra smooth and beautiful.
If you cannot make the scratch go then you can hide it and cover it and for that you just need to get a best quality wax crayon that matches the color of the finish on your scratched furniture and rub it over scratch and when you think it is finally done then take a wool or Lennon piece and rub the surface with it, BTW you can try plain furniture paint for that too and that look even better.
