Once a week, dust exposed surfaces with a clean and moist cotton cloth. Then dry the surface with a clean and dry cloth. Once a month, polish your furniture with a non-silicone good quality paste wax made by a reputable manufacturer, taking care to follow the instructions. Always polish or dust with a motion that follows the grain of the wood to avoid scratching the surface, and allow polish to dry completely before replacing any objects on the surface. For greasy stains or waxy build-up use a diluted dish detergent which should be wiped on with a clean cloth and removed with another. The whole affected surface should be waxed after this process to maintain consistency in protection.
