Tips for Protecting a Wood Tabletop December 01 2014, 0 Comments
I mean, COASTERS! Obviously. It's much easier to prevent a liquid stain on natural wood rather than try to get it out, but I get it... we're not all perfect and some of us haven't purchased our Flox Coasters yet (shameless plug - buy them here for $15!). Here are some tips that'll help your table looking like a spry piece of freshly polished wood:
-Dust Often: regular build up of dust can eventually scratch and make your table less than shiny
-Remove Watermark Rings Gently: chances are watermark rings are ingrained into the wax, not the wood. Try putting mayonnaise on a soft cloth to rub it out (this is weird but it works!).
-Place Strategically: Don't place your table near a radiator or other heat source which can eventually cause warping and/or splitting.
-Have Flox Coasters handy around your house ... an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Pictured above are the Flox 'Numeros' Coasters which come in a set of 4 and are made from 100% recycled rubber in the USA.
