Oak furniture is treated with soapJune 21, 2009
I tried to treat oak furniture with soap ten times, but in vain: the surface did not acquire resistance to different substances. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Oak surface is treated for two purposes. First, to keep the light tone of the wood. Secondly, the wood is impregnated with soap (more precisely, with a solution of soap flakes) so as not to ingress dirt.
Dissolve the flakes and well razbaltyvaem to obtain a dense foam. Foam is applied to the surface of the table along the fibers with a nylon sponge. Then wipe the surface, leave to dry and process a couple of times.
If, for example, you pour red wine on the table, a stain will remain, but it can be washed with a solution of soap flakes. But the surface impregnated with soap retains its resistance for a short time, unlike, for example, from varnished or oiled.
The solution should be thick - at least 25 g of soap flakes per liter of water.
Note: Light wood should not be sanded with metal wool, however fine it may be.Rust stains may appear due to metal particles stuck to the surface. Oak can not be cleaned with detergents containing ammonia.
