For everyday use Wipe clean with damp cloth, this range is trying to reproduce historic furniture and thus in natural wood you will get surface scratches and marks from everyday use we hope you will love these the marks you create as a historic record of good honest furniture use. Any splits can be filled with matching colour bees wax. Excess heat, sunlight and dryness in an poorly ventilated room can cause the wood to split so avoid placing your furniture close to heat sources use mats and coasters when placing hot drinks onto the surface to avoid ring marks.
