Cleaning an Old Wood Sewing Machine Cabinet

I have an old sewing machine that needs to have the wood cleaned, it is dark from years of use. I am looking for a natural way to clean the wood without removing the original finish.

* 4 tablespoons white vinegar

* 1 quart warm water

* 2 quart container with lid

* 2 soft cloths


Put all of the ingredients in the container and shake it until the contents are mixed. Then use dampen a soft cloth with some of the mixture and wipe down the cabinets. Dry them with a clean cloth.

Lemon juice, olive oil, and lemon essential oil if you have it, mix with warm water. 1/8 c lemon juice, 2 T olive oil, and 1 drop essential oil in mixing bowel with 3-4 cups of warm water. My son and i cleaned kitchen cabinets and our china cabinet this way and they look clean and beautiful. Everything comes off really easy too, without damaging wood.

Try linseed oil. It works wonders to clean and nourish wood.
