How to get rid of furniture?

Polish protects wood furniture when applied properly.Polish protects wood furniture when applied properly.

Furniture polish is meant to protect wood furniture while giving it an attractive shine, but a heavy buildup does just the opposite. Dull or sticky wood results from a heavy buildup of the wax or silicone present in most furniture polishes. Fortunately, this buildup doesn't usually compromise the original finish beneath the polish, so you can dissolve it without having to strip and repaint or stain the entire piece. Work quickly as you clean so that the cleaner doesn't penetrate any deeper than the polish buildup layer.

Dust the furniture with a dry microfiber cloth because dust and dirt residue can scratch the wood finish when you scrub the polish from the surface.

Combine one part white vinegar with one part water in a bowl. Dampen a rag in the solution and wring it out until it's barely damp.

Scrub the furniture with the vinegar-dampened rag in the direction of the wood grain. Moisten the rag in the vinegar solution as necessary.

Wipe the furniture dry promptly after cleaning because water soaking into the wood can cause damage or make the wood grain swell and rise.

Dampen a clean rag with mineral spirits if the vinegar doesn't remove all the polish after a thorough scrubbing. Wipe the mineral spirits onto the wood in the direction of the grain. Promptly wipe it off with a water-dampened rag, then dry promptly.

Things You Will Need

  • Microfiber dusting cloth
  • White vinegar
  • Bowl
  • Rags
  • Mineral spirits


  • Use a cotton swab to clean the polish from crevices in the wood.


  • Test mineral spirits on a hidden area first to ensure that it doesn't strip the finish from the wood. If it does strip the finish, you may need to apply a fresh finish after removing the polish buildup.
  • Mineral spirits, a type of paint thinner, is flammable. Work in a well-ventilated area away from sparks and heat sources.
