How to fix scratches in wooden furniture

If you have a few light scratches in your furniture, you might want to try this technique before you attempt re-sanding. First of all remove any wax that is on the furniture. This can be from years of polishes which contain silicon products. Sometimes your scratch might even disappear at this stage. See here for wax removal technique. Once you have a wax free, non sticky feeling furniture try this. We would also recommend testing a small amount of the mixture on an inconspicuous part before applying to the scratched area.  

1 part DYC White Vinegar

2 parts Olive Oil

Whisk until completely mixed, pour a little of the mixture onto the scratch. Leave for 24 hours to absorb in. Wipe off any excess.
