Damage to wood surfaces in your home can make you feel robbed, especially if you paid a lot of money for the furniture. I learned the hard way that not all wood is created equal and not all wood is actually wood made from a solid slab. I purchased my first dinning room table about three years ago! Got a great deal on it I thought. Turns out, I never should have purchased it and it looked like I couldn’t use regular kitchen cleaners on it. It has a veneer finish to it, but its black and anytime you wipe the table down with a wet cloth or a cloth with a chemical on it, like spic and span, the black comes off. It looks like my table is incredibly dirty….I hate this table…I hated it about 3 months after I purchased it. But part of the blame was my own. I used a chemical spray on it to clean it when I should have used a warm damp cloth on it. Also veneer can scratch and leave chips because it’s just a finish and usually sits over processed manufactured woods instead of a real solid chunk of wood.
Not only that, I made the biggest mistake a parent can make purchasing a dinning room table. I purchased an upolstered bench seat and chairs that I can’t just wipe clean after every meal. I have to spot shot it. It’s a pain in my butt and I got fed up today and purchased a brand new dinning room set, with a real wood table top! And now I know how to take care of that table top and want to share that with you in the infographic below.
