Oiling your wood product
We recommend oiling your wood products regularly, depending on use, to bring out the natural glow into of the wood and to protect against cracks and drying it out. Oiling makes the wood more resistant to grease, colored liquids and food.
The frequency depends on the use. If you use the product every dat, oiling is recommended 2-4 times a year.
Step by Step guide
Oiling instructions for interior products
To ensure optimal absorption, oil the wood when it is completely dry.
Apply plenty of oil in cirkular motions on all sides and edges.
Let the oil soak in for 24 hours (preferably in an airtight bag). Any excess oil can then be wiped off with a dry cloth.
Leave the oil to dry. This gives the wood time to absorb all the oil before washing it again after use.
We recommend using HORN’s own countertop oil, which is food approved. A natural cooking oil such as corn and grape seed oil can also be used.
Advice and guidance
Clean easily with lukewarm water and a sponge or brush. However, remember to wash the wood on both sides to avoid bowing and dry with a tea towel.
Avoid dishwashing and soaking the product in water, as this can cause the wood to crack. Also avoid leaving food leftovers, as it may penetrate the wood.
The wood can be doused with boiling water to kill bacteria. See also our tips for using salt and lemon. Remember to care with oil afterwards!
