Wax Oiled Finished Wood:
Routine cleaning: Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Clean the surface periodically with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water. Never use wax-based products (e.g. Pledge), aerosol-powered cleaners, polishes, waxes, abrasive cleaners, or oily polishes.
Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off. Make sure that your wood furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. We recommend that wood products should not be exposed to intense sunlight for prolonged periods of time as ultra-violet rays may eventually damage the finish.
Do not use an abrasive material on the wood.
Maintaining the oiled finish: To oil the product, prepare the product prior to applying the oil: Rub the entire surface with ultra-fine steel wool (no 000) in the direction of the grain to remove small surface blemishes, light scratches, and any build-up from previous oil treatment. Improve the appearance of blemishes (like scratches or nicks) by sanding the wood veneer lightly with very fine (no. 360 grit) sandpaper in the direction of the grain. Apply small amount of boiled linseed or Tung oil to a clean soft cotton cloth. Wipe small sections at a time in direction of grain using a circular motion until the entire veneer is coated.
Wipe off excess oil with a clean soft dry cotton cloth and smooth in the direction of the grain. Within 10 minutes, rub again with a soft dry clean cloth until the entire surface is dry. After about three hours, polish with a soft dry clean cloth. Allow the oil to dry for 24 hours before sitting in it to avoid transfer to clothing. As the oil builds over time, the period between applications will extend. Only apply oil when the product looks dry
NOTE: Only apply oil when the product looks dry. Only apply oil on wooden or veneer surfaces. Immediately wipe off any oil that makes contacts with leather, plastic, or metal parts. Properly dispose of rags used with oil as they can accidentally combust. Rinse oily rags with thoroughly water and hang out to dry.
Leather: Occasionally remove dust from the leather with a damp, lint-free cloth. Small soiled spots can be gently removed with a colourless eraser. Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off with a little water. Once a year, the leather should be treated with a special leather care product, but never with any type of strong cleansing agent. Only use quality leather products which do not leave residue. Oily build-up on the leather makes it susceptible to bacteria, which can destroy the leather. Clean the stitching with a soft-bristle brush.
Make sure that your leather furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. In addition, we recommend that leather surfaces are not permanently exposed to intense sunlight, because direct sunlight over an extended time period can diminish the quality of the leather.
Leather can be treated occasionally with conditioners to keep it in its original state. Liquid spills should be blotted up immediately, not wiped. For daily cleaning, dust leather with a soft cloth.
