Dust your tabletop regularly with a soft, dry cloth. To remove food debris and dirt, wipe with a damp cloth and then dry. Do not use an abrasive cleaner. Protect your tabletop from liquids, heat, direct sunlight, and abrasives. Do not leave spills unattended, and use surface pad beneath heated dishes. Use a cutting board and coasters to minimise scratches on your tabletop. Note that wood finishes may still darken with time and exposure to the elements. Maintain wax as needed, using a natural beeswax or paste wax free of paint thinners. Hardware may loosen with use. Periodically check to make sure all connections are tight.
