Some of our furniture is finished with a white combination hardwax/oil. This is combination of oil & wax. For daily care the oiled surface can be cleaned with a mild solution of soap & water (avoid aggressive soaps) or with a special soap for oiled surfaces. Any stain should be removed immediately from the surface. The oiled treatment protects the wood against staining by most common fluids but is no guarantee against stains. Apply the oil once or twice a month for the first three months. This will restore the initial coating and seal the pores of the timber, forming a natural protection against everyday wear and tear. Afterwards an application twice a year should be sufficient to maintain the finish. Stains & small scratches can be removed locally. Only the stained part needs to be re-treated to restore its initial coating and protect the surface again.
