Wood Cleaner:

Many solid wood worktop manufacturers do not recommend the use of multi-purpose cleaning products that contain chemicals which may damage worktops. Our Wood Cleaner has been specifically designed to deep clean all wooden surfaces and to remove heavy soiling and stubborn stains, but can also be diluted to be used as an everyday worktop cleaner to gently cleanse without causing damage. When diluted, the cleaner makes 2.5 Litres of cleaner for your worktops, working out at just £2.39 per 500ml for everyday cleaning.

Worktop Oil:

Our worktop oil has been formulated to seal and finish all solid wood worktops as well as re-oiling them for maintenance. A time tested and proven blend of natural oils and resins, it penetrates deep into the wood and dries to provide a hard, durable, and highly attractive satin finish.

Compliant with The Materials and Articles in Contact with Food (England) Regulations 2012; our worktop oil is perfect for the treatment of worktops used in the kitchen and dining areas, where contact with food, spills and exposure to water and other liquids are a frequent hazard.

The natural finish provided with the application of worktop oil provides water resistance to worktops, helping to reduce staining and make the wood easier to clean and maintain. This protects and enhances the natural beauty of your wood.

The Worktop Maintenance Kit can be used on all types of wooden worktops such as oak, beech, walnut, etc. It can also be used to clean and oil other items of oiled wood too.

Protecting new wooden worktops

It is essential that any brand-new worktops are treated with worktop oil before installation, otherwise there may be some areas that are difficult, or even impossible to reach afterwards and will remain untreated leaving them susceptible to damage. 

Shake the oil well before use. If you are unsure of the finish, test it on spare wood, or an unseen area first.

Apply the oil directly to the foam brush to work the oil into the wood following the direction of the grain.

Work the oil over the entire surface of the worktop and all edges so that there is a thin, even covering.

Leave to penetrate for 5-10 minutes and then wipe away any excess oil with the Lint Free Cloth.

Leave to dry for four to six hours. Two more coats should be applied after the first, leaving the full four to six hours drying time between each coat to ensure the previous application has completely dried before applying the next.

The denibbing pad can be used to gently sand the surface between coats of the oil when dry, this will ensure a smooth, flaw free finish. Make sure to gently rub in the direction of the grain and remove any dust with a damp cloth before the next coat of oil.

Protecting old wooden worktops

Cleaning

Use the Wood Cleaner in an undiluted state to deep clean the surface; simply apply the Wood Cleaner to a clean cloth and rub into the wood applying pressure. After cleaning, wipe any cleaner off with a clean, dry cloth and leave to dry.

Preparation

Take a denibbing pad and lightly rub the worktop making sure to rub in the direction of the grain, this will help to make the surface lovely and smooth, ready for the next application of oil. At this stage, the colour may appear slightly duller. Remove all dust from denibbing with a clean cloth.

Applying Worktop Oil

Apply the worktop oil using the foam brush to work the oil into the wood following the direction of the grain.

Work the oil over the entire surface of the worktop and all edges so that there is a thin, even covering.

Leave to penetrate for 5-10 minutes and then wipe away any excess oil with the Lint Free Cloth.

Leave to dry for 4-6 hours before use.

Everyday Cleaning

For general day to day cleaning, the Wood Cleaner can be mixed at a ratio of 4:1 with water (4-parts water to 1-part Wood Cleaner). This can then be stored in a trigger spray bottle and used as an everyday worktop cleaner. Simply dampen (not wet) a cloth with the solution and wipe down the surface.

Maintenance

To maintain the fine quality of your solid wood worktop, it is essential that it is oiled regularly. The worktop is fully protected and in good condition when the surface has a slight sheen to it and water ‘beads’ or forms droplets on the surface. Over time with use, the finish will diminish, and water will not form beads and will spread out more, the sheen will also look duller. Ideally, the surface should be re-oiled before it gets to this stage. It is good practice to re-oil well used worktops every 3 months, or twice a year otherwise.
