Newly purchased Pilat & Pilat furniture with oil finish have a hardening time between 8-10 weeks. During this period, a protective layer is formed on the timber. We advise you to not use the furniture intensively during this period.
Through the use of the piece of furniture, its timber may become pale or faded. This can be 'refreshed' by applying the included maintenance oil ( natural or white pigmented). This maintenance oil restores the original oil layer and gives a silky, smooth, dirt and water repellent coating.
• dining and coffee tables: once every 3 to 4 months
• dressers and closets: two times per year
Under the header 'maintenance' on the website you will find a detailed description.

The soaping frequency depends on the intensity of usage of the table. Soaping the table should be repeated by you, depending on the usage and dirt. Do you have an active family and is the table often dirty? Then you may clean the table weekly.
• dining and coffee tables: once every 1 to 4 weeks
• dressers and closets: once every 1 to 3 months

Try to remove these spots immediately with a damp cloth. You may use some soap to dilute the substances. The longer the stain remains on the furniture, the more difficult it becomes to remove these. Old stains will eventually disappear too, but it will take some more time. A very dirty table, for example after a party, we recommend an extra soap wash.
