Place burled wood furniture out of direct sunlight, and away from heat vents or registers. These can fade and dry the wood.
Clean burled wood that is sealed with polyurethane by adding mild dish soap to warm water. Dip a clean, lint-free cloth into the solution and wring it out until it is damp. Wipe the surface of the burled wood, and then dry it with a second clean cloth.
Renew the shine on unsealed burled wood by putting a few drops of linseed oil onto a clean, lint-free cloth, and rubbing it into the wood.
