quick fix for dirty antique furniture

Ruth_pa5September 14, 2011

We are moving a beautiful dining room set- bow front glass china closet etc.- this weekend. It has been in a really dirty room, not wiped or dusted in well over a year, old dog & cat smells- pretty bad. What can we do as a short term fix?

Lemon or Red oil? (It's maybe oak). It needs to go to it's new home & be set up right away. Want it cleaner & somewhat protected. Thanks.

Wipe with mineral spirits.....then give it a good coat of paste wax.
