Tips And Cautions
To clean hard to reach crevices, try taping a small piece of sponge to the end of a pencil. Dampen this in a bit of sudsy water and push it into the crevice. Make sure you rinse and dry it. You can dry this area by attaching a cotton ball or piece of cloth to the pencil. For dirty areas, try putting a small amount (dime sized) of liquid detergent directly on the area before scrubbing with a sponge.
Use only mild cleaners and never use abrasives on painted furniture. In addition, use only detergents, rather than soap, on glossy paint. Soap may dull a glossy finish. Do not rub too hard. If you are not sure if the paint will be damaged during cleaning, test a small, hidden area 1st, such as the bottom of a chair leg. Don’t let the piece of painted furniture air dry.
