I wanted to pop in and share with you the best way to care for any untreated wood products that you purchase from Leo+ Cullie. To make sure your beads last throughout the dreaded teething years (yikes, I know cue the cringe face) just follow these simple steps.
When you receive your untreated wood item you will want to condition it first thing. You can use things like coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, or beeswax. Conditioning the wood essentially waterproofs it and will keep it from cracking due to too much moisture. It will also keep the wood safe while washing, just be sure to ALWAYS re-condition it after each wash. It is best to also condition the wood EVERY week. You can use a lint free cloth, a flat edged paint brush or you can use your fingers. Just rub it in and let it sit for a bit then rub some more in and then buff that with a lint free cloth. You can NEVER condition the wood too much, remember that!
And there you have it guys, it's really that easy! If you have any questions at all feel free to email me or pop a comment down below. Enjoy!
