  • Dust your furniture regularly with a soft clean cotton cloth.
  • Do not keep alcohol, other alcoholic solutions, and nail paint remover near your wooden furniture. These can cause harm to your furniture.
  • Always use coasters or mats to keep any hot object on the wooden furniture as it may get damaged by causing white rings or spots.

  • If using wooden outdoor furniture, make sure you place it under shade when it’s too sunny or rainy. You can add life to your outdoor furniture by caring for it.
