There are a variety of wood cleaners, and many of them are used differently, according to Better Homes and Gardens. Dusters are often the first line of defense for wood furniture, as it removes the layers of particles that build up on wood surfaces. Anything from a feather duster to terry towels can be used to remove these particles, and they are gentle on the wood.

Beyond dusting, there are several oil-based cleaners that help remove dust and grime. While an oil coating can make wood surfaces more susceptible to showing fingerprints, it can also make the wood more slippery, thereby making it difficult for particles to attach themselves to the wood.

Beware cleaning your wood surfaces with products not specifically aimed toward wood. Although soap and water can be used to remove sticky spots, water can stain or warp wood if not used properly. Additionally, do not use all-purpose cleaners on wood surfaces unless your furniture has a plastic coating.
