PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR SANDSTAND™
WITH PROPER CARE & MAINTENANCE.
- As the SandStand™ table begins to show signs of wear and/or fading (actual timing depends upon the amount of use and exposure to environmental conditions), apply an even coat of Mineral Oil to all wood surfaces of your SandStand™ using a cloth or disposable towel.
- Mineral Oil (sometimes called liquid paraffin) is a non-toxic, non-drying product derived from petroleum that is colorless, odorless, and flavorless. Its properties prevent water absorption, which makes food-grade mineral oil (as determined by the Federal Drug Administration) a popular choice for wooden kitchen items such as wooden spoons, bowls, and, of course, cutting boards and butcher blocks.
- Allow the Mineral Oil to fully penetrate through the wood fibers overnight, then wipe off any excess oil. Apply additional oil to any visible dry spots or apply a 2nd coat for extra protection.
- DO NOT allow liquids of any type to stand on the SandStand™ for prolonged periods of time. As with cutting boards, excess exposure to liquids will allow them to soak into the wood, causing the wood to expand and soften, which may affect the strength of the glued joints.
