10 Hacks Everyone With Wood Floors Should Know
I didn’t think this would work, but it really does! You can use a wet cloth and an iron to get rid of dents! Be warned though, this depends on the finish on your wood. Try it on a hidden area first to make sure it won’t damage the finish on the wood. But, the dent will come right out!
Mix one part vinegar with one part canola oil to get rid of any scratches in your wooden floor! It seems so easy, but it actually works and makes your floor like brand new!
For scuff marks on your wooden floor, an easy way to fix that is by using a tennis ball. Simply rub it across the scuff mark and the fibers will pull the scuff mark right out.
If you or someone in your family accidentally gets permanent marker on wooden floor, no worries! Just take a bit of toothpaste and a wet cloth to scrub it right out, no problem!
If you’re rearranging furniture in a room with wooden floors, then do yourself a favor and put socks or leg cozies on all the furniture. It will make it easier to move and prevent any scratches.
You can also put bits of wine cork on the bottom of your furniture in order to prevent scratching. Give it a try a few times so you know the piece of furniture won’t slip and slide a lot if it’s something you sit in.
Make your very own cleaner to take care of your wooden floors. It’s more natural and has less chemicals than store bought cleaners, which is always nice!
