Use: Four tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in one quart of water.
Tools: A soft cloth.
Tips: Wipe dry with a clean cloth and polish with a dry cloth. Immediately wipe up acidic spills, like lemon and tomato, which can discolor the finish. Don't use abrasive cleansers or bleach, which can pit the surface.
