Dilute a small amount (roughly one tablespoon) of Cif cleaner in hot water. Scrub with the grain and don’t worry if the water starts to turn brown. This is the natural tannins coming out of the wood. There is no need to be precious with this cleaning method.
Rinse the top with plenty of water and then wipe off any excess water on the surface.. Avoid contact with hot objects, use heatproof mats if necessary

Fabric & Leather
Each fabric will have its own set of care instructions so if uncertain, please contact the manufacturer. Details can be provided
To remove stains, you should treat the area immediately and not allow the stain to dry into the fabric. Always work inwards from the edge to prevent the stain from spreading. Do not over wet the fabric. Instead, use small amounts of cleaning liquid at a time, blotting between applications. Continue until the stain has disappeared.
Leather matures beautifully if treated properly. Similar to fabric, any tough stains that you can’t remove should be dealt with by professional cleaning companies.
Vacuum the leather using the soft brush attachment. If necessary, simply wipe with a damp cloth and a mild cleaning agent. Buff with a clean, dry cloth. Avoid using chemical polish and soap.
