Oil-treated furniture should be wiped off with a wrung-out cloth daily. Remember to re-treat the surfaces two or three times a year – or as needed – which involves applying oil to the wood with a clean cloth. Never pour oil directly onto the furniture. Let the oil soak into the wood for about 10 minutes, but wipe away white oil immediately after application using a clean, dry cloth. If a surface is scratched, sand it lightly with a sanding sponge or use sandpaper, 280–320 grit, and sand with the grain in a little oil. Afterwards, wipe off with a cloth. Note that smoked oak and beech must be treated the same way, because these woods are also oil-based. After use, put the cloths in water before discarding them due to the fire hazard.
Wipe off with a wrung-out cloth in clean water every day. Then wipe off with a dry cloth. To get rid of scratches or revitalise a lustreless surface, apply a thin layer of furniture oil. Ask your furniture dealer for advice on which oil to use. Apply the oil with a cloth and let it soak in for 10 minutes. Remember: never pour oil directly onto furniture. Afterwards, wipe off the furniture with a clean, dry cloth. After use, put the cloths in water before discarding them due to the fire hazard.
