Removing the dark stains that can get onto your hands from working with walnut and other dark woods can be easy. Just pour a little lemon juice in your palm and rub your hands together. The slightly acidic lemon juice will remove the stains from your hands without damaging your skin.
Here’s how to protect precious woodwork during home remodeling and construction. Recycle used carpet pads removed with wall-to-wall carpet. The pieces are soft and flexible enough to wrap around banisters and other delicate woodwork. Secure the pads in place with strips of duct tape. This way, your wood will be safe from scratches, gouges, and heavy traffic during remodeling.
