Our items are sealed with a special wax we make in the studio. It's made from organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Although our products are sealed, they are only water resistant, not waterproof. Do not soak or let your terrazzo piece stand in water.
Terrazzo pieces can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap. Using any harsh cleaning products or scrubbing will damage the surface of your piece.
Metal straws and glass pieces can be washed in a dishwasher.
Terrazzo tumblers and storage containers include a sample of our polishing wax. If you did not receive one with your item you can make our recipe at home or purchase Clark's Stone and Concrete wax. Polish as often as necessary. We would recommend it every other month or more if it is used often.
Not microwave safe
Although all our materials are non-toxic, it may not be safe to place food directly on our items for food.
Polishing Wax recipe
This homemade polish is great on anything that is made from wood as well. It can clean, polish or restore any of the following items in your home, such as:
- Wood Furniture
- Butcher Block countertops
- Wooden utensils
- Cutting Boards
*If using on cutting boards and utensils, you’ll want to ensure that the beeswax is food grade and safe for use with items that touch food.
- .5 oz beeswax pellets*
- 1.5 oz coconut oil
- 15 drops of lemon, lavender or orange essential oil – optional
- Combine the beeswax and coconut oil into a canning jar.
- Heat over a double boiler or microwave for a few seconds at a time until the wax has melted.
- If you want to add fragrance to your furniture polish, drop in essential oils into the mixture now.
- Give the polish a quick stir and then you can let it sit to harden and firm up in the jar, about 3-4 hours.
- Once it has fully set up, you can add a lid and store the jar in a cool dark place.
