How do you clean dirt and stains from raw pinewood furniture?

How To Clean Dirt and Stains From Raw Pine Furniture

Raw pine is soft and if it has not been sealed, it will get dirty very fast. If you have dirt and stains on your raw pine, you can use most any liquid cleanser to rid the wood of the dirty buildup. However, you should use the liquid cleaners sparingly. They can soak into the raw wood and stain it.

Another outlet is to purchase something known as a crumbly cleaner. This is a dry cleanser that feels much like putty. You can rub it on your raw pine without harming the color or condition of the wood.

The only other outlet you have to remove stains from raw pine is to sand it.

Where can I purchase the crumbly cleaner? Is it called by other names? I have not been able to find it online.

I will try the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I love those and have them throughout my home. Thanks, Beckie!
