Caring for your Monkeywood product
We suggest using coasters and mats on any furniture pieces. Fine-grade wire wool and furniture wax is often successful in the removal of any rings. Avoid furniture being placed in direct sunlight, above average temperatures or subjected to extreme changes in temperature. Central heating and under-floor heating can dry out the atmosphere which can cause movement in the wood.
We recommend treating your Standing Duck – Medium with a high quality beeswax or furniture oil once or twice per year.
