Our design pieces are treated with Osmo Polyx®-Oil besides coloured waxes not just for durability but also for the ease to maintain.
Note: Wood is a natural material so slight variations in colour may occur.
Birch plywood cupboards treated with Osmo Polyx®-Oil will last for generations. The extremely protective micro porous finish allows the wood to breath, thus keeping it “healthy“ for the long term.
The finish repels moisture as well as dirt and should any dirt or damage occur, it is easy to clean. Should it ever required a repair, the cupboard can simply be re-oiled or partially renovated without sanding which is good since sanding the plywood further would destroy the characteristic of the birch plywood itself. It is also a huge advantage over lacquered wooden furniture. For further information, please click here .
For regular cleaning, a slight damp non abrasive cloth with water will be enough. For refreshing and for unlikely event of removing tough stains, the use of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner is suitable. For further information, please click here .
Should you see signs of wear and if re-oiling is required, please use Osmo Polyx®-Oil.
Be cautious when moving your birch plywood furniture. Always lift and never drag.
Use floor protectors for the hairpin legs that have been provided or your own alternative ones to avoid scraping or scratching.
Be quick to wipe up when accidents happen.
Don't allow liquids to sit on the wood for prolonged lengths of time. Only use a slightly damp sponge or cloth, even when cleaning.
Don't use all-purpose cleaners that may contain bleach, chlorine, ammonia or any powder type abrasive cleaners as they will damage the protective layer.
Don't use any spray polishes or furniture wax as they will only make your wood slippery and easily attract dirt.
We recommend that you protect all surfaces with place-mats or coasters, do not place wet or hot products directly onto the surface and keep away from heating.
For fabrics coverings
Regular cleaning: lightly damp cloth or sponge with lukewarm water and mild alkaline free soap.
Do not use: solvents, chloride, abrasives, chemical agents or wax polishes. Use only cloth that will not dye transfer.
