Scratched Furniture Hacks

We all have had our woes with scratched furniture, and I have a few easy DIY helpful tips to help remedy the problem. All you need is a little patience, elbow grease, or good polish to do the trick.

What you need:

Before you start make sure your furniture is clean and dust free. You would be AMAZED at how a quick dusting can help.

  • Deep Scratches

You can use coffee, tea bags, iodine, and shoe polish to soak into the cuts of the wood. Use a cotton swab to penetrate the liquid. Do it 3-4 in a few hour time period.

  • Markers

Find the correct market color to go over the scratch. It may take a few times but the marker will blend in.

Best to use black or brown.

  • Crayons

Melt the crayon first. Crayons have that clunky texture and you NEED it to be smooth. DO NOT heat too long because the crayon will run and may BURN YOU.

Be careful!

  • Lemon and Oil

Make a mixture 1 part each of the lemon and vinegar. Use a cotton ball and a little elbow grease. Rub in small circles and the scratch will disappear.

Best to use on small scratches or small multiple scratches.

Good luck!
