To keep your reclaimed wood furniture looking beautiful there are a few simple requirements.
Regular waxing will improve the protection and overall appearance. You can wax your furniture as much as you want but every few months is adequate.
Waxing is very simple and quick and shouldn’t take you long at all. It smells great too.
Things to be careful of …
Placing hot or wet items such as pans, plates etc directly onto the surface.
We recommend the use of placemats or coasters to avoid unwanted stains and marks.
But dont worry if you get any marks it is always possible to remove them.
Eat Sleep Live supplies 400ml replacement tins of wax at £9.50 inc p&p.
If small cracks appear(known as shakes) on the surface of your furniture this is quite normal and part of the character of reclaimed wood. It is nothing to be concerned about but if you would like them to be more subtle simply wax over them which will fill the shakes with wax.
Over time the wax will dry out and the shakes will start to appear again, this is a good indication its wax time again!
