    What is on it?

    Dust? then just damp rags

    Rat or mouse droppings/urine, then white vinegar and rags followed by water on rags, followed by Nature’s Miracle which should stay on it.

    Hi Carolyn. If it is wood I would mix a little murphy oil soap with water and use a rag or sift sponge and clean it. Then wipe dry.

    Carolyn I would first dust it then tackle cleaning. Soap and water or Murphy’s works well. Vinegar for disinfectant.

    Try a magic eraser. I just tried this on an antique cream colored desk and chair it worked wonders!

    Hi Carolyn, hope this helps you out.

    In addition to regular dusting, you'll want to actually clean your white wood furniture on a monthly basis to keep it bright and crisp. Just mix 1 cup of white wine vinegar with 2 cups of warm water and wipe with a soft towel. It'll be good as new in a matter of seconds.
