Whether you are purchasing a dining set or new counter stools, it can be a pretty extensive purchase. You want a piece that is affordable, but durable, and will hold up for years to come. However, it is inevitable that your table and stools will see their fair share of spills and even scratches.
Even the most careful eaters aren’t perfect.
While the first spill or two may be upsetting, it is crucial to remember that taking the proper steps to clean and protect your furniture is what is important. At Chair Fair, we love your dining set as much as you do, which is why we are taking this time to provide the best cleaning practices.
Keep Your Ingredients Simple
Wood furniture is sophisticated and elegant. But, even more, with the proper care it will withstand the test of time. However, your wood furniture can be easily damaged if you are not careful. We advise against using traditional counter cleaners, as they can contain harsh chemicals that can wear away the protective coating.
If you are looking to purchase retail cleaning supplies, take extra precautions to ensure there are no coating additives. For example, oil soaps provide an excellent shine, but they’ll also trap dust and dirt. These additional ingredients not only create a sticky barrier, but the elements that stick to it can potentially scratch your furniture.
Make Your Own Cleaner
For every day spills, home remedies can help you keep your wooden furniture in tip-top shape. One of the biggest trends of the day lies with essential oils. These powerful, yet delicate, oils are not only effective for cleaning but they will also protect your counter stools.
If you are new to the world of essential oils, be sure to take some time to conduct research. Like any product, you get what you pay for. High quality essential oils like lemon or wild orange will leave your house smelling wonderfully while taking the elbow grease out of cleaning.
Finally, be sure you never use scrubbing pads on a wooden surface. By doing so, you will undoubtedly wear away the protective finish and cause scratches.
At Chair Fair, we are dedicated to providing high quality counter stools and dining sets that will last for years to come. Beyond the product, we also believe in educating our customers to ensure you get the most out of your investment! For more information, please call us at (781) 843-3300.
