A green and money-saving way to furnish your home is to look for secondhand furniture at thrift stores, flea markets and through online sites like Craigslist. But since you don’t know where or how the furniture was stored, you should consider giving it a thorough cleaning before bringing it into your home. For wood furniture, pour 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 cup ammonia and a gallon of warm water into a bucket. This mixture will remove grime and dirt and completely disinfect the piece of furniture. Just use a damp towel with the mixture and wipe thoroughly. It’ll clean and disinfect, and it won’t damage the finish of the wood.
