Wood Care & Maintenance
WOOD CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The wood components of our grinders and storage jars are finished with food-grade wood balm with natural oils, waxes and fragrances. We recommend applying natural food-grade wood oil or wax to the whole surface twice a year. Apply a thin film of oil/wax using a clean, soft cloth and rub it into the wood until the oily film disappears. Use a clean, soft cloth if you need to remove excess oil/wax.
Stona Wood Balm
It enhances the natural wood structure, is easy to apply and provides simple maintenance.
Food-safe and non-toxic.
PASSIVE CARE OF YOUR STONA GRINDER
Wood reacts to environmental changes, such as moisture, temperature and light. The tips below should help you to preserve your Stona products.
- Sunlight -
Keep your grinder away from direct sunlight. Wood is especially susceptible to sun damage. Stona products should be kept out of direct sunlight, and away from heat sources. If exposed to these conditions the wood will eventually split or crack, and the wood will dry out.
- Humidity & Temperature -
Wood is a hygroscopic material. It reacts to changes in humidity and temperature. Wood shrinks when exposed to low humidity and expands when exposed to high humidity. Humidity levels should be kept between 40 to 55% , this will guard the product from shrinking, cracking, or expansion. This is also the range considered normal for living condition and best for health.
