Everyday maintenance of pine furniture
With regards to maintenance, for day-to-day cleaning, we recommend wiping away any dust and spills, etc with a damp cloth (Or washing-up liquid in warm water)
What you'll need
• Damp, soft cloth
• Washing-up liquid in warm water
• DO NOT USE MULTI-SURFACE SPRAYS
#1: Mix a small amount of washing-up liquid into warm water with your cloth
#2: Wring out the cloth until just damp and wipe the table down, making sure not to leave behind any water puddles or droplets. Alternatively, spray a small amount of the wood surface cleaner onto the cloth and wipe.
#3: Wipe again with a soft, dry cloth afterward if any water droplets remain.
Re-staining Or Re-waxing
In order to re-stain your furniture you will, therefore, first need to know what wax/oil or stain has been applied to your furniture. This should be made clear to you when making an order, otherwise please do get in touch and we will point you in the right direction.

How to Stain
Items we recommend
Protective gloves (nitrile gloves).
Jacobean Dark Oak Danish oil.
If you would like to order this from us, please click HERE.
#1: Please use a duster or dust cloth over the surface of the desk to leave the surface smooth and as dust-free as possible.
#2: Please wear gloves to protect the skin from the oils. Apply a generous amount of oil onto your wire wool. Massage the oil over the wood using circular motions and then finish by following the grain of the wood. Please note you can also use the cloth for this purpose, but the wool tends to get into the grain slightly better.
To finish, please ensure you remove any excess oil using the cloth provided. You want the desk to be as dry as possible once you have finished staining.
We advise leaving overnight to allow the oil to dry thoroughly.
