Learn how to sell and get the most money for your old wood furniture with simple tips from Minwax expert Bruce Johnson on KARE 11 News. First, start with a simple cleaning. Do not use cleaners with bleach, ammonia, or vinegar because these can actually take the finish off of your wood. Make sure you are using a product designed for wood cleaning. Minwax Wood Cleaner will gently clean wood without stripping off the old finish. This product conveniently comes in a trigger spray bottle. To apply, simply spray on and use a paper towel to gently clean off the dirt and the grime that has built up over the years. If you have a piece of furniture with an old finish, you may see whiteness, water spots, and damage even after cleaning. In the olden days, we would have had to strip or sand this down. However, to save the old finish you can use a product called Wipe-On Poly, which is an easy-to-use polyurethane. Use a rag to apply the Wipe-On Poly, allowing the solution to work into the old finish. This will not just create a temporary shine, but will actually apply a finish that is going to add extra protection. Any of these products can be found at a good hardware store or home improvement center. Once you have your furniture polished and looking good, it is time to market it. Start by taking good photographs, because a photograph is worth 1000 words. If you are going to be placing photos online for potential buyers to see, make sure you have some additional photographs on hand
