With this board’s furniture becoming more commonly available in market, it is important to know how to maintain that furniture for its long lasting attractive look. To help in that, below given are few points:

While cleaning the furniture, use minimal amount of water. If you have to use water, rub it on small patch in small quantity and wipe it off with dry cloth immediately.
- Move furniture with care
