1. Give Them Some TLC

Before you tuck your furniture away, show it some love! Give it a good cleaning to remove any dirt or spills. Use the right cleaning agents and techniques for the material to avoid any mishaps. And don’t forget to apply a protective coating or furniture polish to nourish the wood.
