How to clean dining table and chairs to preserve the units intact and remove even the toughest stains without a single trace mostly depends on the stain itself. However, the most important thing you will have to focus on while cleaning dining table and chairs is the production material you are working with. Below, you will see a brief guide on how you can safely approach different materials without damaging furniture piece, as well as some care tips that will help you to prevent the arrival of tough to remove stains:
Simple stains on wood
Simple, new stains on wood can easily be removed with water and soap — any soap. You just have to apply soapy water on a stain, rub it in and rinse with clean water, and wipe the surface dry once you are done. On the whole, wood is not one of the moisture resistant materials, but careful regular cleaning, followed by dry wiping the piece, will not damage a wooden table.
Tough stains on wood
For tougher, harder to remove stains on wood, mix olive oil (you can use the cheapest one) with vinegar. This mixture can be left on the table or chair surface for a couple of minutes and wiped dry afterwards. Some really old, tough stains can be cleaned with pure vinegar, but it should not be left on wood surface for long. Only use pure vinegar if you cannot remove the stain with other means.
High gloss finish
On the whole, high gloss finish is easy to clean but you should still be very careful with the surface because it can get scratched if you use abrasive soaps and paper towels. Stick to soft, liquid cleaners and soaps, and always use the softest sponge or fabric you can find. Tough stains are usually removed with pure alcohol.
Simple stains on upholstery
Before you start cleaning your fabric chair upholstery, take some time to vacuum it. This will only take you a couple of minutes, but will make your cleaning process much more effective. New stains can usually be removed with water and soap (powder, liquid, etc). Tough ones can generally be removed with fabric cleaners and stain removers — just read the instruction carefully.

A mix of vinegar and alcohol can usually remove some really tough stains on fabric upholstery. Both of them can also be used separately, but the mixture is generally more effective. It is a bit smelly, but the smell will go away once the fabric is dry.
Furniture care tips
Always remember that the stain should be removed as quickly as possible — this way, you will save yourself plenty of time and effort in the future and will keep your home tidy. A fresh vine or grease stain on fabric, for example, can be sprinkled with salt — this will make further cleaning process much easier.
Also, you should not forget that wooden furniture requires polishing. You can either buy ready-made polishes and apply then once in a while, or use the same cheapest olive oil instead.
