After a successful trip to aconsignment furniture store, you want to take care of your new finds to keep them in their original condition. With a bit of maintenance, you can guarantee that your furniture lasts for many years. Use these tips to protect your furniture from harmful spills and stains:
- 1. Determine the Material
The first step in protecting your furniture is determining its material. Leather furniture requires different attention than wood furniture. Ask the experts at your furniture store for some advice on protecting the pieces you purchase. You might also want to check with the manufacturer to find the best methods of care.
- 2. Use Caution
Food and drinks can easily stain your beautiful new furniture. If you do eat and drink near your furniture, do so carefully. One act of carelessness can decrease the aesthetic value of your new pieces. If you have kids or pets, try to watch them when they are on or near the furniture.
- 3. Clean Quickly
If something does spill on your home furnishings, try to clean it up as quickly as you can. Acting quickly gives you the best chance of cleaning the spill before it becomes a permanent stain. Blotting with a clean cloth or sponge is the best way to remove the stain without making it worse. If you use a cleanser, make sure to check that it is safe for your furniture.
