There are two types of Campus Grown salvaged wood products: functional and artistic. Follow these care instructions to ensure your Campus Grown salvaged wood product will last a lifetime.

example of a functional wood prouduct

For a functional wood product:

The use of food-safe sealants on this product assure its use in serving a variety of cuisines. When cleaning, never let it soak in water for a long period of time and never wash it in the dishwasher. This product can be cleaned with a wet paper towel or rag, or hand-washed with soap and water and then hand-dried. When you notice that water stops beading on the surface, re-seal the wood with a thin coat of mineral oil; this task will also rejuvenate its appearance.

example of an artistic wood art piece

For an artistic wood art piece:

In order to preserve its unique texture, your handcrafted art piece has NOT been treated with a food-safe sealant. It should be used only for decorative purposes or to serve dry goods. Dry dusting your artistic wood piece will bring back its luster; never wash it with soap or water.
