Over time the wood will absorb more of the soap making the furniture repellent to marks and staining. These care suggestions suggestions however may not be considered as a guarantee against stains. Small inlays can be used to fill up minor existing imperfections and give the product a naturally aged look. The top has no protective stain, so care must be taken. Spills are to be wiped up immediately to avoid staining.
