We recently moved in to a new place and bought a new table. After an exhausting few hours of putting it and the chairs together, I noticed there was a fine dust from the factory on the top of it, and I thought cleaning it up a bit before the lady of the house sees the new table would be a good idea. We had a can of Pledge that we always used on our last table so I went for that. After a quick wipe down I noticed all these sections across the table where you could see the small pieces of wood joined together to make the tabletop:
It seems the cleaner is darkening some of the wood/sections more than others. Is this permanent? Did I ruin our new table within an hour of building it? I unfortunately don't know what the table is made of, but I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that it was sealed to prevent something like this. Googling hasn't been very helpful, as most of the cases of cleaner darkening wood seem to be for unfinished/unsealed tables, and I don't know what these wood sections are called to google for them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
