For everyday use, wipe clean with a damp cloth. In case of spillage, please use one part bleach, one part water and one part Ecover detergent and very gently scrub the surface in the direction of the grain and leave it to dry. Avoid over scrubbing as it may reveal the redder tones of the solid wood beneath.
Please bear in mind that this is a natural solid wood product and therefore will have unique patterns, grain variations, and occasional knots in the wood surface. Wood lives on in the furniture and it breathes and moves over time so natural minor movements that may occur are totally natural, this will not have any impact on the durability, strength and integrity of the furniture.
This vintage range of furniture is made from natural wood and had been hand scrubbed to produce an authentic vintage look. Therefore it has no sealant on the surface. With natural wood, you will get surface scratches and marks from everyday use and we hope you will love these marks you created as a historic record of good honest furniture use. Any splits can be filled with matching colour beeswax. Excess heat, direct sunlight and dryness in an unventilated room can cause the wood to split - we suggest avoid placing your furniture close to heat sources like a radiator. The use of mats and coasters when placing hot drinks onto the surface is also recommended to avoid stains or ring marks.
