How do you clean antique raw wood crates?
Okay I am newbie.. be kind! I have a few vintage and antique wooden crates that I received when my father passed (old soda crates, packing crates) they are really cool but need a good cleaning and perhaps a nice clear coat afterwards but how do you clean wooden crates with unfinished wood? some are really really dirty and I can't bring into the house like that. Please advise- I was going to scrub with Murphys soap and let dry but I am not sure if that is THE way to do it.
Thank you for your help. It is appreciated
