Care kit (for soap-treated wood)


Wood is a durable material. It is easy to regularly maintain soap-treated wooden furniture and, in the long term, it is very effective. The soap protects the wood from drying out and enhances the natural ability of the surface to resist dirt and grime. To achieve the optimum result, we recommend that you soap-treat the furniture several times before starting to use it. Subsequently, treat it approximately 3-4 times a year, or as needed when the wood seems dry and no longer repels water.

If the wood is dirty, we recommend cleaning the surface of the wood with Guardian Wood Cleaner before treating it with soap. Apply the wood soap in an even, thin layer with a soft sponge or a soft, lint-free cloth in along the grain of the wood. Leave the wood soap to penetrate the wood for approximately 5-10 minutes and then remove/polish off any excess soap with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth. We recommend repeating the treatment several times if the furniture is new or if the wood seems dry. When the surface of the wood is dry, it can – if the wood has expanded or if you want a shinier surface – be sanded using fine sandpaper (grit 200 or higher).

  • For difficult stains, we recommend washing the wood using Guardian Wood Cleaner. 
  • If the wood ”expands” (becomes rough), sand it lightly using fine sandpaper (grit 200-240) – never use steel wool!
  • Always treat, clean or sand the wood along the grain of the wood.
  • Avoid placing hot and damp objects on the wood, as this may cause staining.
  • Avoid placing the furniture near powerful heat sources (wood stoves and radiators), as this may dry out the wood and cause small cracks.
  • Never permanently cover wood with airtight materials (waxed fabric) for extended periods of time.
  • When treating tabletops, treat both the top and bottom of the tabletop to minimise the risk of cracking and warping.
