Before speaking directly about the care of furniture, it is necessary to say a few words about the conditions in which it will last you longer.

Do not expose wooden items to direct sunlight, as it can burn its color out. It is considered that care of cabinet furniture is very simple, because it requires minimal attention. This is partially true, i.e. it is really easy to take care of it, but a few important points should be always kept in mind to avoid damaging of the surface.
Firstly, you need to remove a fresh stain while it is still fresh! It is possible that in this case it would be enough to wipe a stain with clean soft cloth without using any detergent. Entrenched spot is much harder to be cleaned off.
Secondly, never use abrasives and hard brushes or sponges, because they can cause serious damage to smooth surfaces, especially lacquered and polished. In other case, it would be just impossible to return a furniture you rent to a store.
Thirdly, carefully read the description of detergents specifically designed for furniture cleaning, it is possible that they are suitable only for particular types of surfaces and can damage varnishing or, on the contrary, natural veneer or array.
