Care & Use Instruction
The stone top to your table is made from limestone. When required the limestone can simply be washed with hot soapy water and lightly brushed down to get rid of any dirt or food stains. It should be noted the limestone will take on a light grey colour. If any cooking oil is spilled, this will alter the colour to a darker shade of grey. We therefore recommend oiling your limestone with a slate oil or cooking oil to keep the top looking in great condition, but this is not a necessity.
Your Garden Kitchen is made from environmentally sourced mango wood. This is a hardwood which is strong, durable and highly water resistant making it ideal for outdoor garden furniture. Left alone, the natural colour of hardwood garden furniture will weather to a soft, silver grey. This process will take 6 to 12 months, depending on the climate and area in which you live and the amount of exposure to the elements. Those imperfections that are inherent features of the wood will become more pronounced over time, giving the garden furniture a rich, natural beauty. Like all outdoor furniture, to maintain the colour and to protect the wood it is advisable to apply a thin coat of teak oil or natural deck oil once a year. The frequency of this will depend on the positioning and exposure to the elements of your item. Doing this will help to protect the wood, making it more water resistant. Oils have the ability to penetrate the table, maintaining its natural oils, nourishing it and helping to enhance its natural grain.
