Eucalyptus Care & Maintenance
All hardwood is living, natural fiber. Due to weather and everyday use, changes occur with hairlines in the grain and lighting. The stained finish on our eucalyptus furniture will begin to fade and dry out if left untreated.
However, to slow down the aging process and maintain your furniture’s “like new” appearance, you should regularly treat the wood. We recommend using a name brand Teak, Boiled Linseed, or Outdoor Interiors Refined Linseed Oil to maintain and protect your hardwood furniture.
Please apply at least twice in the spring and summer. The number of applications varies depending on direct sunlight, temperature, and dry climate versus more humid regions. Your furniture will provide tell-tale signs along the way, so “Please Oil” accordingly. Do not apply any furniture oil in direct sunlight. Apply oil generously and wipe away excess with a dry cloth approximately 1 hour after application.
CAUTION: Using Linseed oil on natural unstained Teak will initially create a much darker appearance before being placed in direct sunlight or outdoors for at least 30 days. Always test a small area under the furniture before finishing any piece with any oils, sealants, or finishes. Caution: Always dispose of oil-soaked rags carefully and in a safe container due to fire concerns.
