Q: We love our new recycled wood dining table but are worried that our two small kids will ruin it with food and drink stains. What is the best way to keep the look but make it easier to wipe clean?
The hardware store suggested poly with a satin finish, the other store said wax. I am not up for sanding this thing down a few times a year and we will all enjoy our meals more when we know that every strawberry isn't a danger. Help!
