I need to know how I can clean our wooden play kitchen I have two boys, and it's not quiteas "new" looking as it once was. I know the wood will age, but this is just plain dirty!

I would just use a damp cloth and water, maybe water and vinegar. If it's unfinished wood I'd wipe it down with some sort of wood polish afterwards, if it's finished though - I'd just wipe it down and be done

I've used a solution of water and Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap on ours. We have some beeswax polish . . . but I haven't used it.

How about a light sanding, if all else fails?
