The interior wood work is generally sprayed with a clear cellulose and any good polish may be used to keep the panels and furniture in order. When kerosene stoves of the wick kind are used for cooking , the ceiling is apt to be become blackened. Warm soapy water will remove grease and soot from the ceiling and around the cooking recess. Furniture polish should be used after cleaning, but not on the ceiling unless it is of natural polished plywood.
The parts of the stoves which have come in contact with the flame tend to rust when not in use over a period.
