Wipe daily with a cotton cloth to remove dust. Avoid harsh soaps and chemicals.Sponge with a mild solution of water and soap (dish washing liquid). Using mostly the foam isrecommended. This soapy solution will give the surface a patina in the oldfashioned way.Over time the wood will absorb more of the soap making the furniture repellent to marks andstaining. These care suggestions however may not be considered as a guarantee against stains.Glass is fragile, handle with care.Do not place on a carpet as the moisture may seep and cause stains.
