Cherry & Ambrosia Maple Chessboard/Checkerboard

  • Keep your chessboard/checkerboard dry at all times, and avoid any form of exposure to water.  Water damages the board, and you do not want that. 

    Your chessboard does not wear off easily as it comes with a hard polish already. Thus, you do not need any extra polish or wax.

    If your chessboard gets scratched, you can clean the smudges with a little damp piece of fabric.

    Keep your board away from extreme temperatures and humidity. Humidity makes your board expand and contract.

    Keep your chessboard away from direct sunlight to avoid damages.

    If your chessboard feels sticky, you should wipe with a damp piece of cloth.

    Dust your board regularly using a dry, soft piece of cloth.
