How to care for your wood product
For wooden table and kitchen ware. Hand wash only. Do not leave in water for an extended period of time. Wood will need re-oiling periodically. Any food safe finish will work. Household oils such as grapeseed or walnut oil also work. Avoid Olive oil. The surface wood is finished with mineral oil beeswax and essential oil blend.
Brass may patina over time with use and exposure to air, it can be buffed gently with a brass cleaning product and soft cloth or allow it to patina naturally for an aged look.
Over time the wood may become "furry". To fix this simply sand back with 240 grit sandpaper and then re-oil.
