Care & Maintenance
Outdoor Interiors only manufactures with 100% Plantation Grown Eucalyptus! Eucalyptus Wood is one of
the fastest growing, environmentally friendly dense Hardwoods prized for its strength, durability and
weathering characteristics in all climates. Eucalyptus is naturally resistant to decay with handsome
pinkish-brown tones and a straight, light wood grain similar to Teak Wood.
Treating Your Eucalyptus Furniture
All hardwood is a living, natural fiber. In time, changes occur with hairlines in the grain and lightening.
While these are normal outdoor hardwood characteristics attributed primarily to weather, you may want to
maintain your furniture with a “like new” appearance. If left untreated, most hardwoods will weather to a
silvery finish over time. To maintain the original color of your hardwood furniture (noting that most
hardwoods have been lightly stained and oiled before reaching the marketplace), we recommend our
Outdoor Interiors Linseed Oil to be used at least 2 to 4 times in the spring/summer sunny seasons. All
new furniture should be oiled prior to use. Applications vary depending on direct sunlight, temperature,
dry climates versus more humid regions. Your furniture will provide tell-tale signs along the way so
“Please Oil” accordingly. Many items can be oiled in actual work time under 15-20 minutes with light
cleaning first. Do not apply oil in direct sunlight. Apply oil generously, and remove excess oil with a dry
cloth 1-2 hours after application.
CAUTIONS: Using Linseed oil on natural unstained teak will create a much darker appearance initially
before being placed in direct sunlight or outdoors for at least a 30 day period. Always test a small area
under the furniture before finishing any piece or set with any oils, sealants or finishes. Caution: Always
dispose of hardware oil soaked rags carefully and in a safe container due to fire concerns.
