Take Care

The best way to keep your wooden wares as good as new is to keep them away from water as much as possible and regularly re-treat them.

Never run your wooden items through the dishwasher and do not leave them soaking in the sink. To clean, wipe with a damp, soapy cloth and dry immediately.

All Boreal items are finished with mineral oil and/or an organic beeswax and mineral oil salve, unless otherwise noted. It is a good idea to regularly treat your items with a food safe salve (found here) or oil. Walnut or flax seed oils are great options. Avoid olive oil, as it may turn your wood rancid over time.

If your items become rough or fuzzy you can take a fine grit sandpaper (200+) and lightly sand the areas that need attention. Then apply a generous amount of oil or salve.

As always, never hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
