MAINTENANCE: Soap treated wood is very similar to untreated wood in terms of both look and feel. Soap treated wood is renowned for its exceedingly beautiful patina evolved over time. When treated with soap, the wood will become increasingly resistant to dirt over time, as its surface will thicken through daily use and become saturated when regularly washed with soap flakes.
DAILY CLEANING: Use a cloth firmly wrung in lukewarm water. When encountering tough stains, you should add soap flakes. In addition to the daily cleaning, soap treated wood should be treated 1-2 times a year or whenever necessary. Use only white/natural soap flakes with no additives added.
AFTERCARE: You can gently sand the surface with sandpaper (180 grit). Sand the surface and always remember to work in the wood grains’ longitudinal direction. After sanding, wipe the surface with a dry, soft cloth in order to remove any remaining dust. Alternative, Vacuum-clean to remove any loose particles.
NB: Oak is particularly vulnerable to overuse of soap, as it contains much tannic acid. Oak washed in soap flakes too frequently can turn lack-lustre and grey or brown. NEVER use washing-up liquid, yellow soap, linseed oil or detergents containing iron. You should never use metal object (steel or iron) as these will interact with the tannic acid in the oak wood and may result in permanent black stains.
Stitch Box is the place where you keep needles, thread, loose buttons and small elegant scissors, all stored in perfect order and ready for the elaborate mending of clothes. We love the idea of making things last and really wanted to bring new life to this small piece of furniture. The handle makes it flexible and easy to carry around and, should you not wish to mend your clothes, you can use it for almost anything else as well.
