With the popularization of environmental protection education, more and more people begin to pay attention to environmental protection in their daily life. Not only the use of reusable bags and the rejection of disposable tableware, but also the concept of environmental protection can be practiced in home furnishing.
Furniture is an object that is closely related to our lives, and many people are also thinking about this, hoping to use more environmentally friendly furniture. Once upon a time, wooden furniture suffered from resistance and was considered not environmentally friendly. But now new evidence shows that wood furniture can actually be more environmentally friendly than other materials if properly selected and used.
First of all, practical wood is a recyclable material, it is also renewable at the same time. Therefore, it is more environmentally friendly than chemical synthetic materials extracted from petroleum. For example, American hardwood can continue to grow naturally, so its damage to the ecological environment is very small.
Good wooden furniture does not need additional painting, and it is very durable to maintain the original color of the log. Moreover, the paint itself is not environmentally friendly. It contains a large amount of harmful substances, which will not only cause certain damage to the human body, but also cause irreversible damage to the environment. Moreover, using some wooden furniture in life will make the home full of the breath of nature. When we see these furniture, we will think of lush woods, and the creation of this atmosphere is also conducive to the development of environmental awareness.
When it comes to buying furniture, there are nothing more than two types of furniture on the market - solid wood furniture and board furniture. These two categories seem simple, but all the furniture in the store are finished products, and it is difficult for ordinary consumers to distinguish them just by their appearance. Only by mastering certain purchasing skills can you avoid buying shoddy and flashy furniture. Let's talk about how to choose solid wood furniture.

Compared with panel furniture, the special material of solid wood forms a natural color difference, wood knot and texture. When purchasing, as long as you look carefully according to the introduction of the merchant, you can identify solid wood and wood panels.

Solid wood furniture must do daily maintenance work, but it is not a simple matter of wiping it with a handkerchief. The first is the choice of cloth, to choose pure cotton and soft cloth.

You should pay special attention not to use some strong chemicals like oil to remove stains on furniture. And you must remember that solid wood furniture should not be wiped with hot water, nor close to the heat source, because if it is kept at high temperature for a long time, the solid wood is easily deformed or even cracked.
