(Family Features) You nurture, protect and care for the things you love. And, your furniture should be no exception. Whether it's a family heirloom or a brand new piece, everyone has furniture they love that should be cared for in the same way as they would personally care for themselves. Caring for home furnishings is more than dusting or giving an occasional polish; rather, it's about nourishing, revitalizing and bringing out furniture's inner beauty.
In a recent survey conducted by TheNest.com, nine out of 10 women say they have either a basic or no understanding of how to care for their furniture. And nearly half (44.7 percent) of respondents think about cleaning only when it's time to entertain which means most furnishings are not properly taken care of on a regular basis.
To help educate people and get them to rethink traditional furniture cleaning, Guardsman, a furniture care pioneer for nearly 100 years, and TV design star Tracy Hutson, have teamed up to introduce furniture's new beauty routine. This new furniture therapy mirrors beauty care regimes like sunscreen and concealers, and includes cleansing, polishing and, of course, covering those tiny imperfections.
"You wouldn't just clean your face only when you have company coming over, or skip applying your anti-aging creams because you don't see a wrinkle on your face," said Hutson. An easy-to-follow furniture beauty routine will help revitalize, protect and restore your furniture:
