Product Maintenance and Care

Serving Boards: 

etúHOME’s serving boards are intended for serving only and should not be used for cutting or chopping. These boards are finished with a plant-based, food-safe hard wax. The eco-friendly wax nourishes the wood, eliminates odors and provides a protective barrier making it quick and easy to clean. To protect and preserve theintegrityandlongevityof the piece, we recommend using a barrier such as parchment paper, a plate or a bowl for non-dry, hot ingredients. 

Serving Board Care Instructions: 

To prevent and resolve surface stains, wipe the surface clean with hot soapy water immediately after using and then dry with a clean, dry dish towel. Never submerge your wood board in water and avoid abrasive cleaning products. Brightly colored foods such as berries, turmeric and mustard may stain white and lighter waxed boards. To remove these tougher stains, reference our website for eco-friendly cleaning options. 

Patterned Serving Boards: 

etúHOME’s patterned serving boards are intended for serving only and should not be used for cutting or chopping. These boards are finished with a plant-based, food-safe hard wax. The eco-friendly wax nourishes the wood, eliminates odors and provides a protective barrier making it quick and easy to clean. To protect and preserve theintegrity of the piece, we recommend using a barrier such as parchment paper, a plate or a bowl for non-dry, hot ingredients.To maintain pattern longevity, avoid placing hot or wet ingredients directly on the patterned side of the board.  

Patterned Serving Board Care Instructions: 

Should food come in direct contact with your patterned board, wipe the surface clean with hot soapy water immediately after using and then dry with a clean, dry dish towel. Never submerge your wood board in water and avoid abrasive cleaning products.   


Cutting Boards: 

Cutting Board Care Instructions: 

To prevent and resolve surface stains, wipe the surface clean with a hot soapy water immediately after using and then dry with a clean, dry dish towel. Never submerge your wood board in water and avoid abrasive cleaning products. 

For an all-natural stain removal remedy, dampen board with warm water and sprinkle coarse salt and/or baking soda over it. Cut a lemon in half and rub over the board while gently squeezing to release the juice. Let stand for 5 minutes and use a scrub brush to remove excess. Caring for your board varies based on your use and location.Daily useand dry climates require more frequent nourishing. We recommend you nourish your board often, particularly after washing, by applying etúHOME's Rosemary and Sage Wood Oiling Wax. 


Glass

Our recycled glass accents are artisan crafted and mouth-blown. This leads to the possibility of having waves, bubbles and imperfections that are unique to each piece. Hand wash all glass with care or wipe with a soft, damp cotton cloth. 

For all embellished and painted glass accents be sure to hand wash with care. We recommend that you do not use liquid cleansers, glass cleaner, soap or abrasive agents containing alcohol on any embellished or painted areas. For the best care, simply wipe glass clean with a damp cloth. To maintain the integrity of glass accents with painted bottoms, do not soak them or leave in standing. 


Ceramics

Our ceramics collection is hand crafted from white European clay. From beginning to end, each piece requires approximately 35 hours of work. During the process, our handthrown pottery and bakeware are fired twice in a precision-controlled electric oven. Crazing will typically occur during the first fire. This is a desired effect to enhance the individuality of each piece. Crazing does not affect the quality or durability of the item. etúHOME’s ceramic collection is oven, dishwasher and microwave safe.


Candles

Our candles contain the finest essential oils created in Grasse, France. The oils are hand-mixed with a blend of high-quality mineral and vegetal waxes. Before lighting your etúHOME candle, trim the wick to ¼ inch allowing the candle to burn more slowly. The first time the candle is lit, allow it to burn until the entire surface liquefies -- this will allow it to burn evenly. In order to extend the fragrance output of each candle, do not light it for more than four hours at a time. After blowing out the candle, re-center and straighten the wick.


Furniture

Most of our furniture items are handcrafted from sustainably sourced wood and finished with a plant-based food-safe hard wax. By applying the non-toxic and food-safe finish to our products, it provides the piece with one of the most natural looking finishes available; the finish will also preserve the true beauty and patina of the wood and natural grain. Because it’s handcrafted of natural wood, the table has inherent variations in color, grain, and knots that make each piece one-of-a-kind. We recommend using coasters, trivets, placemats, or felt pads to protect the finish and prevent marks and stains. Do not place hot items directly on the tabletop. To prevent and resolve surface stains, we recommend wiping the surface clean with a soft, damp cloth after each use and avoiding abrasive cleaning products as these will damage the finish.
