Applying a polish or oil regularly will help your solid timber furniture retain its natural oils and moisture and will increase the lustre of the wood. Dust the furniture with a slightly damp cloth, wiping in the direction of the natural grain. Avoid using the furniture when wearing items of clothing with metal rivets or embellishment, as this can scratch and damage the wood.
Coasters and placemats are recommended on tabletops to protect against scratches and general wear and tear. Always use heat protecting mats for hot items. Keep timber items away from direct sunlight and heat sources, this may cause fading or change appearance.
How to apply oil to your piece of timber furniture:
- Apply plenty of oil with a clean cloth. Tables must be treated underneath as well as on the top side
- After 15 minutes, polish with a sandpaper sponge or fine sandpaper along the grains of the wood
- Polish off remaining oil with a clean, dry cloth
- Do not use the item until oil is completely absorbed
