Furniture treatment

If the famous "wormhole" is a guarantee of authenticity for an antique furniture, it is nonetheless the obvious sign of a real disease that, if we are not careful, will not delay to lose all value to the precious object. We present a treatment technique that is within everyone's reach.

Necessary material

  • Flat brush
  • Container
  • Plastic gloves
  • Wadding
