Care & cleaning handout

Does anyone give out a care & cleaning tip sheet with the products you sell?  If so, what is a simply worded phrase that would work for any item?

Thanks   Larry

On the back of my cards

For Bowls
Care Of Turned Wood Art: Keep out of direct sunlight. Avoid climate extremes. Avoid the use of spray furniture polishes; instead use soft paste waxes.
Care Of Wood Bowls: To clean, wipe with a damp cloth; mild soap in warm water can also be used if needed. Wipe dry after cleaning. Do not submerge in water. Avoid prolonged exposure to water.  Never put your bowl in the dishwasher or microwave.  With proper care, your new treasure should last for generations.
Remember that over time it is not unusual for wood to assume a slightly different shape and color depending upon its environment.
Contact Me to restore or to rejuvenate the finish (fee based).

For Pens
Do Not leave your pen in the car. The temperature extremes experienced in a car can damage or destroy your writing instrument. Treat it as you would any fine, delicate instrument. Although it can withstand a lifetime of use, it will not tolerate abuse.
Do Not use cleaning fluids or any abrasive substance (car wax) on any part of your new writing instrument. The fluids and/or abrasives will damage fine finish.
Do Care for your writing instrument the way you would any fine wooden product. Protect it with a light coat of good furniture paste wax designed for wooden products. After proper drying, buff with a soft, clean cloth.
Do Keep your pen from extremes of heat and cold. Both are enemies of wood. Some woods are very temperature sensitive and may split or develop cracks from extremes of heat and cold.
Do Use your pen, it is designed to be written with, not placed in a drawer.
