t’s important to protect your wood veneer table top as the steam and heat from very hot dishes can, over time, loosen the glue holding the veneer to the surface underneath. This is very easy to avoid by simply using placemats and coasters each meal time. It’s best to wipe up any spill immediately as liquids can seep through the veneer table top and loosen the glue. Don’t use a sponge as this will more than likely just spread the liquid. Instead, use a paper towel or a clean dish cloth making sure the table is dried after cleaning. To clean the matt painted legs use a soft microfibre damp cloth to wipe any marks away, without applying too much pressure. We’d strongly advise against using harsh chemical based cleaners as this will damage the material finish. To keep your velvet upholstered furniture looking its best, we suggest occasionally vacuuming the material to remove any bits that may be resting on the surface. To clean more stubborn surface marks, mix some dish soap (uncoloured) with some lukewarm water or a specialised fabric cleaner and use a spray bottle to lightly mist the solution over the velvet. Then, use something such as a cotton towel to gently wipe the mark away. If the velvet has creases, use a hairdryer on a mid-setting and gently run your hand over the area, or leave in a warm room. After a couple of days the velvet will relax and creases will disappear.
