Here are certain things you need to keep in mind when it comes to wooden products:
Do's and Don'ts of your wooden products
Strict No No to dishwashing
Exposure to excess heat and water will damage your wooden products and may cause warping.
No Microwave please
High heat of any kind damages the wooden products. It can lead to cracking of wood due to excess dry out.
Remove all the excess food and wash immediately. Mildly wash your wooden products using warm water and a dab of soap. Pat dry with a cloth after cleaning. Do not soak them in water for a longer duration of time, excess water and wood are not a good combination.
Use soft cloth to dust often
Like any other product, the dust particles can accumulate on wooden products forming a thin layer that leads to scratches. To protect your wooden products from scratches, use a soft cloth to dust your products often.
They need air too
Leave them to dry in a cool and dry place ensuring sufficient airflow. Wood is sensitive to humidity, it may expand or contract under intense humidity changes. Try to maintain humidity levels for wooden products.
They don't like being sun-tanned
Wooden products react to temperature. They may lose their original shape and color if exposed to direct sunlight or heat. Keep your wooden products in cool and well-shaded areas.
Care is all they need
Do not use food oils to season the wooden products. Use natural mineral oils instead. To maintain the natural shine of wooden products, it’s important to oil/wax them regularly. It forms a protective layer and keeps the natural shine alive. After applying, don’t forget to remove the excess oil/wax with a soft cloth. Excess of oil/wax will attract dust particles and make the wood vulnerable.
They last more than we think they do
Keep re-seasoning your wooden products to increase their life and to maintain their looks. If it becomes a bit worn-out, use a gentle sand-paper and gently remove the damaged layer and expose the layer underneath. Make sure you re-season the wood again using natural mineral oil.
These simple points will make sure that your wooden products last longer and the eternal beauty of wooden products is preserved. Go ahead and shop our wooden products now!
