Here're quick steps to clean your furniture.

1 Clean gently: Always use damp, soft cloth, feather-dusters for regular dust removal from wooden, high gloss lacquer surfaces. Never apply too much pressure while cleaning or it could result in scratches or loss of sheen.

2 Stain free: Stains from ink, tea, coffee, wine, mustard, and grease should be removed at once by applying a mild cleaner directly with a soft cloth and wiping the furniture.

3 Use coasters: Always use coasters underneath containers with hot content.

4 Vacuum clean : Vacuum cleaners is the best and most fuss-free way to clean your fabric upholstered furniture.

5 Protect leather: Never treat leather with solvent-containing cleaner. Always go for special leather care products and cleaners.

6 Stain free: Strong Halogen lighting can often bleach the colour of your furniture. It’s better to avoid harsh lighting.

7 Chemical wash: Heavy stains on removable covers are best removed by chemical cleaning.
