How do I care for my painted furniture?

Furniture finished with Chalk Paint® and Annie Sloan Soft Wax stands up well to everyday wear and tear.  Allow your new finish to cure before placing any items that may scratch the surface.  Avoid excessive water.  Use coasters under water glasses and placemats on dining tables.  Clean with a soft cloth and avoid all liquid furniture polishes.  To clean marks or stains, use a slightly damp cloth or chamois with a bit of mild soap.  Avoid extreme temperatures or humidity.  Waxes dissolve in alcohol, so using wax on bars is not advisable.
