Can plastic harm the finish on my Thomasville Paramus furniture?
Yes. If you have ever pulled a plastic notebook up to find its face imprinted on the counter, you’ve experienced “plasticizer migration”. The ingredients that make plastic pliable also make it dangerous to furniture. A chemical migration from plastic tablecloths, placemats, camera cases, TV remotes or notebooks can stain or darken the finish. Adhesive spacers or the rubber feet on appliances, trivets, lamps, and calculators can leave permanent scars on your wood furniture. If plastic materials have damaged your furniture, seek professional repair advice.
