Maintenance of woodware

Wooden products aren’t free of maintenance. Over time the wood will dull and dry out, so it needs to be oiled on a regular basis. 

When cleaning your woodware, never let it soak in water. Dip a cloth in water with a very mild detergent or soap and wring it out. Use the damp cloth to clean your woodware. Watch out when using detergents on woodware with a matte finish as they can make the wood shiny. 

When your woodware is clean, you can oil it. Hemp oil or other plant based oils or waxes are great for wood care. You could use some Ballistol for this purpose as well. 

Depending on how frequently you use your woodware, it’s recommended to oil it once a week or once a month.
