Care of your new oiled benchtop (or other oiled surface)

Your new benchtops have been professionally finished in oile. To keep them looking their best, please follow these tips on care and maintenance.

Normal day-to-day care –

  • Always wipe up any spills immediately using a soft damp cloth then dry off with a soft lint-free cloth.
  • Always use a chopping board
  • Be careful not to expose the benchtop to stains such as beetroot juice and coffee if you do, wipe them off immediately to prevent further staining.
  • If more intensive cleaning is required use warm water with some mild soap such as Lux flakes.

Periodic maintenance –

  • For heavier stains or benchtops that need more than a general clean, or are looking a bit faded, use a liquid wax cleaner (in spray or liquid form).

    • For stains, the Liquid Wax Cleaner can be applied directly to the stain and rubbed using a cloth. A fine white Scotchbrite pad in the direction of the grain can be used carefully to assist with tough stains.
    • If large patches or entire sections of the benchtop are looking a bit dull they can be revitalised with Liquid Wax Cleaner. Apply the Liquid Wax Cleaner sparingly directly to the benchtop and buff with a soft cloth.
    • For badly worn areas, the benchtop should be cleaned and left to dry overnight, before applying a thin coat of rejevenating Oil in the same sheen level used on your benchtop (refer to your kitchen specifications). Allow to dry overnight.  If you are just treating a specific area rather than the entire benchtop it is worth polishing the benchtop with Liquid Wax Cleaner to obtain an even sheen level.

For more information or to purchase our approved products, please chat to your designer.
