Oiled oak

Wipe down oak products with a damp, soft cloth added a mild PH-neutral detergent. Avoid using sponges or similar coarse cloths for cleaning as this might leave scratches. After cleaning, wipe completely dry with a dry cloth. Do not use acidic cleaning agents as this will damage the surface and leave permanent stains. Make sure to remove spilt liquids immediately or it will leave stains. In case of permanent stains, please contact a professional for further instructions.



Grease and stains
Carefully remove stains with a cloth and a solution of water and PH-neutral soap flakes. Do not use sandpaper or similar as this might damage the protective layer of the surface. 


For oiled oak surfaces, thorough maintenance is necessary. Use oil treatment when needed. Clean with soap flakes for general cleaning.

- Follow the instructions of the oil treatment carefully and make sure to clean the surface before getting started. After treatment, make sure to destroy the oil cloth by rinsing it in cold water or storing it in an airtight metal or glass container as oil cloths may self-ignite if stored incorrectly.

- Carefully sand with sandpaper in case of scratches. Do not use steel wool. Use grain 240 sandpaper or a soft sponge added a little oil. Always grind over a larger area to avoid a recess on the spot. When working with abrasive materials it is important to work along the veins of the wood, not across. Wipe off the oil immediately with a dry cloth.



Cleaning oak surfaces with soap flakes

1. Use ½ decilitre of soap flakes for a litre of hot water. Whip the soap flakes into the water.

2. When the water reaches room temperature, apply the foam with a soft cloth. Only use the foam, not the water, and avoid soaking the wood.

3. When the wood is dry, polish with a soft, dry cotton cloth.

We recommend saturating wood surfaces with a solution of water and dissolved, PH-neutral soap flakes (every 4-6 months to preserve its long-lasting appeal). Patina will develop over time. Always use coasters for drinking glass and rivets for hot items to protect the wooden surface.
