- Do dust regularly with a lint free cloth.
- Do test polishes & waxes on a discreet area first.
- Do mop up spills immediately with a soft damp cloth, being careful not to saturate the surface. Dry the surfaces thoroughly afterwards.
- Do protect rugs from narrow legs on furniture as they can damage fibers.
- Do clean your leather regularly with a leather cleaner to keep it looking at it’s best.
- Do regularly turn seat pads to prevent uneven wear.
- Don’t use solvent based sprays as they can dry out furniture or damage it.
- Don’t leave wooden furniture exposed to excessive or extreme temperatures. The excessive heat or humidity can lead to warping.
- Don’t leave leather or wooden furniture in direct sunlight as it can cause fading and affect the finish of the piece.
- Don’t use abrasives on painted surfaces as they will take of the painted finish.
- Don’t place hot objects directly onto furniture.
- Keep jewellery in soft-lined compartments and take care to close any fastenings so items don’t catch or tangle.
- Store away from direct sunlight, damp, and extremes of heat or cold.
- Read up on your jewellery's materials and stones for the best care advice.
- Be especially careful to remove jewellery before doing any manual work – including housework – as it can be damaged by knocks and household cleaners.
- Always put your jewellery on after you get dressed, apply makeup, perfumes and hairspray so they don’t contaminate your jewels, making sure to let everything dry before adding the finishing touches.
- Gently clean your jewellery occasionally to remove any oils, dust or contamination. If you are not sure how fragile a piece is, use caution and use simple, non-abrasive materials like soap and water, with a soft toothbrush.
- Keep gold jewellery separately from silver jewellery. Gold scratches easily, so keep them in individual soft cloth bags or the original boxes they came it.
- Be aware that soap, cosmetics, perfumes, cooking grease, and perspiration can dull any jewellery and should be avoided.
- Be careful not to rub or to over-handle your jewellery.
- Silver-dip type cleaners should only be used to clean silver jewellery, which must be rinsed and dried thoroughly afterwards.
