Guide to cleaning oak furniture:

Never use harsh chemical cleaners, acetone-based products or abrasive cleaners.

For daily cleaning, it is sufficient to dust the furniture with a feather duster or a soft, lint-free microfiber cloth. Use a clean cloth that is slightly dampened with water only.

For a more thorough cleaning, you can moisten the cloth with warm water and a little neutral soap. Do not forget to rinse it well.

Always clean in the direction of the grain and without scrubbing. Try to protect all the beauty of the natural wood with its textures and grain.

Next, dry the furniture very well with a soft, dry cloth so that the wood does not get wet.

General recommendations:

Dust daily.

Protect them from moisture. Water and moisture also cause damage, so protect them from these elements.

Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight. The heat can damage the surface of the furniture, spoil waxes and varnishes, as well as eat away its color and shine, among other harmful effects. That is why it is so important not to leave hot containers directly on the wood.

Watch out for stains. Don't forget to serve drinks and food on coasters and tablecloths, instead of placing it directly on the wood.

It also avoids dragging elements over the surface.

Suitable cleaners for oak furniture:

There are three different types of products: waxes, polishes and silicone cleaners:

Waxes accumulate on the surface and create a film that hides the natural beauty.

Silicone cleaners create a lovely, long-lasting shine, but can seep into the surface of the furniture and make a barrier that will not accept stains or lacquers, preventing any possibility of touching up the furniture in the future.

Furniture polishes containing mineral oils, emulsifiers and detergents are your best choice as they not only clean the furniture and restore its shine, but also create a protective layer against dust and dirt.
