Tonight's Tackle It Tuesday had to revolve around my TV. So that basically meant it needed to happen either the family room, kitchen, our bedroom or a local sports bar*. We skipped the bar, and I chose our breakfast table in the kitchen. I love it. I really do. I love black lacquer furniture, but it's a smudge and dust magnet. So tonight, I did a little deep cleaning on the table.
This table gets pretty much a daily cleaning with a barely damp cloth, only water. But the problem is the water doesn't really get out the smudges. Solution? Again, a barely damp cloth with just a teeeeeeensy bit of cleaner such as Murphy's Oil or Pine Sol. Worked like a charm! The smudges are gone, and the table looks great! I also removed the cushions, cleaned the chairs and table legs with the same process. Make sure to wipe with the grain, not against it.
You didn't forget about Tackle It Tuesday right? I'm sure you have a quick 10 minute project you can tackle before bed. Go on! Consider yourself motivated!
