Wipe wood 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 is recommended. This soapy solution will give the surface a patina in the old fashioned way. Over time the wood will absorb more of the soap making the furniture repellent to marks and staining. These care suggestions however may not be considered as a guarantee against stains. Cushions are water resistant and UV resistant canvas. Foams are not quick dry foams and direct sunlight will fade the colour of cushions over time. Fabric is water repellent but not waterproof canvas. Brush off loose dirt and dust regularly with a soft brush. Blot excess liquid of spills immediately with a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge. Do not rub. If necessary use clear, lukewarm water and gently wipe the spill. Dry with a clean towel and allow to air dry. Professional cleaning is recommended.
