To clean your bone inlay furniture, wipe with a slightly damp cloth. Harsh cleaning products should never be used. Bone Inlay furniture has a porous surface, so items in high-use situations – such as coffee tables – should be sealed prior to use. Grout sealant (available from any hardware store) is suitable for this task. We also recommend putting a small amount of furniture wax / Vaseline onto your inlay piece from time to time to ensure that the coloured “filler” does not dry out.
