Caring for your Furniture
We use Rubio Monocoat hardwax oil finish. It's made of natural, plant-based ingredients with no harmful solvents or chemicals and is food safe and environmentally responsible with 0% VOC.
Here are some tips for finish longevity and to help your solid wood piece age beautifully!
ROUTINE CLEANING: Use only water dampened cloth.
MORE THOROUGH CLEANING: Use only Rubio Monocoat Surface Care.
A refresher coat every 2-6 years is a good idea to keep your piece looking fresh, more protected and aging well. For this we recommend using Rubio Monocoat Renew. It’s fast drying and easy to apply.
Easy to spot repair, there are a few simple approaches depending on the situation. Please reach out to us directly for the best approach.
We use a mineral oil + beeswax blend on these items. It is a food safe finish, and meant to be “flexible” with use. The surface is easy to “refresh” when it becomes marred or dried out with direct use — simply reapply a similar “cutting board” finish.
