Pine furniture works well when constructing furniture, as you have a neutral-colored, durable wood.  The pine needs cleaning just like any other piece of furniture, and you want something that cleans off dirt and residue without damaging the pine or leaving behind residue.

To properly care for the pine furniture, make your own cleaner and use as needed. 

  1. Mix a cleaning solution of three parts olive oil to one part white vinegar in a bottle with lid. Fill the bottle as much as you like as you can store this cleaning solution and use in the future.
  2. Vacuum over the furniture or dust with a lint-free cloth to remove loose dust.
  3. Drizzle about 2 tbsp. of your homemade cleaner onto a lint-free cloth and rub the cleaner into your pine furniture. Rub with the wood grain direction. Allow the pine to air-dry. The mixture of vinegar and oil will provide a deep-cleaning and moisturize the wood, leaving the pine looking its best.
