Cleaning & Maintenance
Cleaning and maintenance is simple and easy if performed correctly. This can help extend the life of your furniture for years to come. It really comes down to the type of finish you have on your table. Normally very simple to figure out.
The majority of our furniture with minwax oil based stain is sealed with a satin water-based polycrylic found here. It is the only product we have found that is safe and will not change the color of the stain after application.
Cleaning furniture with our minwax polycrylic is simple and easy. We recommend just using soap and water mixture OR a wood safe cleaning product, like Pledge.
If you have furniture finished with our popular Rubiomonocoat finish, they recommend using their Natural soap on all of their products, found here. A 1 liter bottle makes nearly 15 gallons of cleaning solution.
Minwax Polycrylic Finish
You can easily add more finish to your table after years of use if desired. The finish will adhere to itself with a crystal clear finish. In the shop, we spray all finishes onto our furniture, but brushing it on is a usful application process as well. If you ever want to do this, please reach out to us and we can walk to you through how to do it on your own!
RubioMonocoat offers a product call Renew. This product can be used once your furniture feels too dry or rough or when the finish has worn down due to heavy use. Another option is to use Universal Maintenance Oil. This will bring the furniture back to its original luster and restore any faded colors. Both options are simple to apply and highly effective!
