Whenever you purchase a product from smpl, you will always see what type of finish is used in the description before purchase.
In most cases our products are finished in one of two finishes:
- A water-based finish, which is sprayed on by hand
- An oil-based finish, which is rubbed on by hand
Both finishes seal and protect the wood from liquids and such, although we highly recommend not to leave any of the products you purchase from smpl wet for long periods of time. For example, with our Bath Caddy, we do not recommend leaving soap and water on there for long periods as wood can still warp even when sealed.
Caring for Water-Based Finishes:
If your item gets wet or food is spilled, clean and dry immediately. Clean with your favorite all purpose cleaner. We like using Puracy due to its low toxicity.
Caring for Oil-Based Finishes:
Care for oil-based finishes is virtually the same as caring for water-based finishes. If your item gets wet or food is spilled, clean and dry immediately. Clean with your favorite all purpose cleaner.
