Never Do These Things To Your Wood Table
If you have just gotten a beautiful new wood table for your dining or living room, you may be wondering how to take care of it so that it remains in tiptop condition for years to come. Short of not using your table altogether, which you definitely don’t want to do, there are a few simple steps you can follow to keep your wood table in pristine condition.
Always Use Place Mats and Tablecloths When Dining
Do you usually just place hot dishes down as soon as they are ready, without anything between them and the table? If so, you are making a big mistake. Heat can damage your wood table, and a set of inexpensive cork trivets can quickly take care of the problem. In addition, you will want to be careful of spills when dining. While a morsel of food is not likely to do much harm, there can be a problem if an entire dish spills across your table. When there is a big group around, spread a tablecloth over your wood table for protection. For your daily meals, a simple placemat for each person will do.
Do Not Use Commercial Dusting Sprays
When it comes to cleaning your wood table, less is more. All you need to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth after each use. If you have been diligently setting tablecloths and place mats to dine, there should be no problem. Commercial dusting sprays can attract and accumulate more dust than they get rid of overtime. When having guests over, some of them may be wearing chunky jewellery or watches on their wrists. If you do not have a tablecloth to protect your table, here is where it can get scratched.
Remember to Use Coasters and Koozies When Drinking
Condensation is the biggest enemy of your wood table. You may not have second thoughts about placing a can or bottle of drink directly on your table, straight out of the fridge. But think about water rings and raised wood – this is how they develop. Even vases can result in water rings if moisture is allowed to accumulate under it. That is why you should always use coasters or koozies when enjoying a cold drink. Not only will your table thank you, koozies can also help to keep your drink colder for longer and do not leave your hand freezing cold!
