To keep your furniture in good condition follow these instructions: wipe with a clean damp cloth to remove surface dust. Wipe gently with a soft dry cloth in the direction of the grain, never in a circular motion. Always protect furniture from hot surfaces with placemats. Spillages, especially alcohol, must be wiped off immediately with a damp cloth. Do not expose furniture to direct sunlight or extremes of humidity. Do not conceal the tops of your furniture with glass covers. This can result in sweating of materials and peeling of stain may occur. Do not use general household cleaning products that contain silicones. Do no allow hot or cold abrasive items to come into contact with surfaces. Do not allow liquid or damp cloths to remain in contact with furniture surfaces.
