~ Painted Furniture Care Tips ~



Caring for Your Painted Furniture

Please treat your newly finished piece of furniture as you would a fine fabric or antique - with respect!
You will continue to enjoy the look and feel of your finely finished furniture for years to come.
·         All water-based and oil-based furniture finishes need 21 - 28 days to cure (or even longer if there are several layers of wax); treat it with care during this period and avoid excess handling.
·          Do not place water glasses, sharp or scratchy objects on it.
·          When cleaning, use a soft dry cloth.
·          To obtain best results when removing unwanted stains, use a slightly damp cloth or chamois with mild soap and water; do not use any abrasive products or tools.
·          Avoid all contact with liquid furniture polishes and spray polishes.
·          Avoid excessive water; wax is by nature water resistant but will spot if not wiped immediately.
·          Use placemats and coasters on tabletops.
·          Wax is alcohol soluble and should not be used in bar areas.
·          A moderate climate is best; avoid extreme heat or air-conditioning, as well as excessive moisture or dryness.
I hope this gives you some tips on taking care of your painted furniture!

Generally, avoid any direct contact with liquid to keep wooden finishes from having ring marks. Thanks for posting.
