Oil-treated surfaces

Daily care:
Wipe with a damp cloth and then immediately wipe off, using a dry cloth.
For the maintenance of oiled surfaces we recommend the enclosed care kit:
Care kit, Natural oil – no. 244
Care kit, White oil – no. 760

Always clean* the surface before starting the oil treatment. Use a white, lint-free cloth for the treatment.

If there are any scratches on the surface, polish with sandpaper (240 grit) or a Scotch sponge. Apply a little oil to the wood and smooth it in, following the grain of the wood. Immediately wipe with a dry cloth. Apply oil to the cloth and wipe the furniture so you distribute the oil in an even layer. Leave it to penetrate for 3-5 minutes. Then wipe off any excess oil, before polishing with a dry cloth. Repeat the treatment 2-3 times a year, as and when required.

* For cleaning the surface, use a cloth that has been wrung out after being saturated in a solution of 1 tsp. Trena cleaning agent to 1 litre of water. For particularly dirty surfaces, use 4 tsps. Trena cleaning agent to 1 litre of water. Always wipe off using a dry cloth. REMEMBER: Never use washing-up liquid!

Let the wood dry off for 12 hours, before starting the oil treatment.

Never pour oil directly onto the furniture and never use steel wool. Avoid washing oiled surfaces for the first 2 weeks after delivery. The biological oil needs time to harden. You should treat your table for the first time about 4 weeks after receiving it.

Notice: Please notice that the cloth used for oil treatment can ignite spontaneously if not stored safely. To avoid this, clean the cloth in cold water or keep it in an airtight container, made of metal or glass.
