How to Care for Your Live Edge Table
Your live edge table is finished with a hand-rubbed natural oil. In 30 days it will be fully cured. It will continue to cure further with time and with the natural oils from touching with your hands. Highs and lows are also normal and natural with this product.
For the next 30 days, do not introduce any wetness to the surface. Use a tablecloth during use and coasters when setting a drink on it. After 30 days, you will no longer need the covering, as the finish will be naturally water-resistant.
Do not use any cleaning product on your table. A dry rag for dusting is recommended. If soiled, use a damp rag and wipe dry (after 30 day curing period). To disinfect, use one capful (not a cup) of bleach in a gallon of water. Ring out a rag and wipe the table, then dry with a cotton cloth.
Never use Pledge, Behold, wax, Murphy’s Oil Soap or any product on the table. Depending on the amount of washing, the oil may need to be reapplied over time. If so, stir Odie’s Oil (our preferred natural wax) vigorously. Apply a small amount to a 12” x 12” area, and move on to the next area. Apply with a white Scotch-Brite Pad. After 45 minutes, buff the entire surface with a dry cotton towel. Be sure the cotton towel has been previously washed and is not brand new.
We hope you enjoy your table for many years to come.
