Woodcrafts will remain durable and last many years with the right care, but may require gentle cleaning or a fresh coat of protection after some abuse. The wood color will naturally change over the years, exposing the wood’s natural beauty. The change can be accelerated or delayed by the exposure to sunlight.

Avoid

To care for woodcrafts so they will last a long time avoid harsh cleaners, dishwashers, soaking in water, boiling water, rainy weather, neighbors, careless friends or in-laws. Outdoor conditions are not recommended and will significantly reduce the life of any wood finish.

Cleaning

Clean with a towel and water or light soap, without soaking the wood.

Kitchenware

The key to a nice finish on wooden kitchenware is use and oil. After long term use and care, the wood will become more durable than the day you bought it.

Wood has a natural oil, and products are coated with a food safe finish. Soaking in food or water and washing with dish soap can remove some from the wood and begin to feel dry. It may need to be restored by applying a bit of kitchen oil or natural wood finish to the surface after use. Proper care and use will change the wood, becoming smoother, harder, long-lasting.

Restoring Finish
