Saligna Wood Care Instructions

Saligna wood produces natural oils, making it insects and water-resistant. This makes is much less likely to rot. If you live in a warm and damp climate, it’s possible that mould or mildew may grow on your wooden furniture. These fungi are not harmful to most hardwoods, but they could leave unsightly marks, which should be attended to sooner rather than later.

DO

• A light dusting and wiping with a cloth can keep your Saligna wood in great condition.

• You can also rinse your Saligna furniture with a light spray from the hose. Dip a sponge or soft-bristle brush into a mixture of mild detergent and water. Scrub lightly and evenly. Rinse again, with clean water. Allow to dry completely.

• To remove mould or mildew that does not come away with a damp cloth, mix a solution of the ingredients listed below and apply it to the area in question with a sponge.

• 1 cup of ammonia

• 1/2 cup of white vinegar

• 1/4 cup of baking soda

• 3.5 litres of warm to hot water

DON’T

• Do no use bleach-based cleaning products on Saligna wood as some formulations may actually weaken wood and leave discolorations.

• Do not use a scraping tool or metal brush to remove stubborn dirt, mould, or mildew.
