A general how-to clean guide
First off, using a general purpose cloth rinsed in water, making sure there are not foreign objects caught in it. We do not want any scratches now do we? Then wring out any excess water from the cloth. Make sure to use a mild soapy solution. Then with that cloth, gently wipe over the TNG wardrobe gently, taking care not to rub. Do not make use of any strong detergents or glass-cleaning agents. Make a use of products that contain natural ingredients. With the TNG special polishing cloth, gently dry the surface of the unit. If your cloth is damaged or worn out, make sure to get a replacement. You can get these replacements from leading supermarkets and retail outlets.
Cleaning instructions for glass and mirrors.
First off, make sure you only use a non-abrasive glass cleaner for your glass and mirror. Avoid making use of what is corrosive to the glass and mirror surface. An example of which will be phosphoric acid and hydrofluoric acid containing cleaners.
If the glass or mirror has been bathed in direct sunlight for a while and is now warm, as a result, do not clean the glass or mirror.
Avoid making use of any harsh materials to clean your glass/mirror. An example would be scouring pads, powered based cleaners and other abrasive cleaners.
If you've got any paint on the glass/mirror, do not use a blade or any scraper to remove it. You can instead make use of any solvents or paint removals. Please use them after you are sure they are safe for your glass/mirror.
Cleaning high gloss surfaces.
If your product has a glossy finish, you can make use of the TNG special polishing cloth given to you when you bought your unit. If the cloth is damaged or worn out in any way, an easy replacement can be gotten from any leading retail outlet.
You can use water to clean your TNG wardrobe unit. Always keep the surface of your unit dry at all times.
Avoid using any furniture polish. Vinegar based detergents; solvents are to be strongly avoided, infect using them is not to be contemplated. White spirits and furniture polish also fall into this category.
Abrasive cleaners and sponges, steam cleaners are a big no-no.
It is normal for tiny scratches and polish marks to be left behind after polishing high gloss vinyl surfaces. In general, it is common for this kind of material.
How-to guide for specialty surfaces like aluminium and fur.
Make use of a soft rag and gently wipe the surface. For issues related to the dust, you can use a vacuum cleaner or a soft brush. Hard brushes are not allowed. Again, abrasive cleaning agents are to be avoided.
Let move on to stand alone furniture care. Regardless of the type of standalone furniture, the same care is required.
General care for freestanding furniture.
First off, placement is important. Make sure your furniture is placed on a strong, level surface.
In the event of any accidental spills, ensure they are immediately wiped clean.
Still on the subject of placement, make sure to leave some gap behind the furniture and the wall so that some air can circulate.
Do not display your furniture to direct sunlight for too long.
If you need to move your furniture, avoid dragging it. Doing so can damage any fittings and attachments ultimately affecting its stability. It can also void your warranty.
Furniture and direct heat like you would have from open flames, furnaces, etc. is like the relationship between a cat and a mouse. It does not end up well for at least one of the party’s involved. In this case, that would be your furniture. So please avoid doing so.
Beware that the warranty does not cover any accidental damage. However, if you have any household insurance, this kind of damage may be covered with.
