People often ask me how they should care for their new Amish furniture. It really is very easy to care for. Following a few rules will keep your piece looking new well into the next generation.
DUST CAREFULLY with a soft cloth, following the grain pattern of the wood. Use a old T-shirt or cheesecloth the has been laundered to remove the sizing.
DUST OFTEN to remove everyday abrasive particles from wood surfaces.
CONSIDER CLEANING with a mild non alkaline soap and water. Use the suds in a damp sponge or cloth but be sure to pretest the solution on an out of sight section to make sure it doesn't damage the finish. Dry immediately with a soft cloth and buff lightly following the grain.
DON'T WAX or use any polish that contains any silicones! Catalyzed heat and moisture resistant finishes don't need additional polish.
Now..... step back and admire.
