To clean the polywood surface, all you should need is soap and warm water. However, for a deeper clean, you can use a solution that’s one-third bleach and two-thirds water. Use a brush with soft bristles to reach any tight spaces and a soft cloth for cleaning the overall piece of furniture. The polywood surface can withstand heats up to 115°C, however, we do not advise putting hot items directly onto the surface. In full sunlight light can refract through glasses causing a concentrated heat source which can damage the surface. For this reason we don’t recommend glassware is stored on the top surface for long periods of time.
