How to clean a wooden bed frame

If you own a stunning  wooden bed, a good cleaning routine is a crucial in keeping your bed in tip top.

When cleaning and caring for wooden beds and furniture, it is best to keep it simple with products. Here are the important tools and products you need to clean wooden furniture well:

Clean buffing cloth with no residue from other cleaning products will best clean a wooden surface.
Wood-friendly polish will add shine and life to your wooden furniture, but check the label before use.
Vacuum cleaner will effectively remove any dust from wooden surfaces and wooden bed frames.
Vinegar mixed with water is ideal for cleaning wooden furniture and tackling stubborn stains.
Wood-friendly cleaning products such as anti-bacterial spray can be used for an easy cleaning routine.

But remember, whilst wooden beds are sturdy, choosing the wrong cloths or sprays could cause damage to the frame or its beautiful finish. Make sure you don’t drench the wood with liquid, take care to select wood-friendly cleaning products and use soft cloths when it is time to give your bed a spring clean to avoid damaging your bed.

We recommend a weekly cleaning routine which includes a polishing and vacuuming of the wooden bed and a more thorough deep clean every couple of months with a soft cloth and wood-friendly cleaning spray.
