When cleaning marble it is highly important to use mild, non-abrasive detergent and water. Removing stains from the surface will require soap and water, or stain removing poultice powders that allow you to effectively remove substances. When you are needing to remove stains from glass, however, 3 parts vinegar and 1 part ammonia must be poured onto the stained area and left to sit for 30 minutes or even overnight in worse cases. Once satisfied, wash it off with soap and water, followed by a glass cleaner to ensure perfect cleanliness. 

Cleaning wood furniture is a little bit different though. Bona Tech or any furniture polish that doesn't contain silicone is recommended for these surfaces to get the best results. Cleaning leather is a bit more delicate, requiring you to wipe spills immediately with a clean cloth or sponge. For spots or stains and daily cleaning, clean with mild non-detergent soap. Rinse well, gently wipe off, and allow to air dry in order to not leave any residue. Cleaning butter, oil or grease from leather on the other hand must simply be wiped with a clean cloth, and leave it alone. The oil will be absorbed by the leather. DO NOT APPLY WATER. Also, do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, ammonia or any other type of chemical solution.


When it comes to selecting the right solutions for your situation, there are a number of approaches to take from the range. The basics of the process still remain the same regardless. We recommend dusting frequently with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Clean the surface by rubbing in the direction of the grain. Go about polishing your furniture approximately every six months, using a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and rubbing the polish in the direction of the grain. Be especially careful to avoid scratching high gloss finishes by using a feather duster or very soft, clean cloths and wiping with minimal pressure.


Avoid placing your pieces in direct sunlight, as this can cause fading to occur quickly, before you may realise. Avoid extreme changes in temperature by arranging your couches and chairs away from radiators, vents and air conditioning units. Keeping away from plastic or rubber materials (lamp bases, notebooks, placemats, etc.) is also ideal as certain plastics contain ingredients that may damage the finish of your upholstery. Use pads, cloth or felt to protect the furniture surface from plastic, rubber, hot dishes, beverages, bookends, flowerpots and vases when needed.

Clean up spills immediately with a blotting method as to quickly and effectively draw out the substance front he material. Wiping will force it deeper and make the stain far worse. Water left over a long period of time will cause white spots in the finish. Alcohol, perfume, after-shave and medications can cause severe finish damage as well as these can have elements that dissolve or seep into the material. Use a protective pad when writing with a ballpoint pen on the furniture surface, especially when regarding leather, as this can leave indentations and marks. Lift and place objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface. Avoid placing furniture directly under windows.
