Removing dust from vintage furniture
Hello helpful people,
We inherited a Heywood-Wakefield bedroom from my MIL. The outside wood is in very good condition and I'm confident that we will be able to clean and polish that safely. However, the inner parts of the furniture (unfinished) are full of dust - many years of dust. DH thinks vacuuming will do the trick - I'm not so sure. IMO, after a period of time, dust becomes caked on dirt!
Do you have any ideas on how best to clean this?
DH is adamantly opposed to using any water. From reading the posts here, it seems that a barely damp cloth will not hurt.
Thanks in advance - I've been lurking for a while and have learned a lot.
