Use a soft microfiber cloth for dusting and cleaning.
Occasionally (as needed):
For spills, food and natural oil build up use a solution of warm distilled water and non-alkaline soap to work up a lather. The solution should be applied to the wood surface with a microfiber cloth once the area or surface is clean. Do not soak wood or leave standing liquids for a long period of time.
In dry conditions and or if wood appears parched we recommend applying Method “Wood for Good” to wood with a soft microfiber cloth.
• Never use commercial cleaners, solvents, synthetic waxes, sprays or ammonia based cleaners on furniture.
• Maintain uniform humidity in your home’s environment to reduce wood movement and cracking. The optimum relative humidity level is generally considered to be between 40% and 50%.
• Protect wood surfaces from all heat and liquids. Use trivets, insulated pads, place mats and coasters appropriately.
• Keep furniture out of direct sunlight. Sunlight can alter finish colors and oxidize hardwoods.
