Save Your Wooden Furniture With Walnuts
Wooden furniture and flooring give your home a gorgeous aesthetic, but they can easily become scratched. This is an annoyance most homeowners have to deal with from time to time, but there’s a very simple solution to repairing these scratches you might not know about. All you need for this trick is a few walnuts and a soft cloth. Grab a walnut and rub it along the length of the scratch and the surrounding area for about thirty seconds. You want to give the oils from the walnut enough time to soak into the scratch. Then, go over the area with a soft cloth to buff the wood. You’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily the scratches disappear from your wooden surfaces.
