Care and maintenance of The Skinny Mirror

Frequent dusting of your mirror will help maintain the luster of stained and painted finishes. Use a dry, soft cotton cloth. Don’t place wet or hot objects on your mirror.

Excessive or prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade the color of your furniture and dry the wood. Use window coverings or tablecloths to prevent daily direct exposure of your furniture to the sun. As part of natural aging, your wood furniture will typically develop a beautiful patina and undergo color changes, depending on the wood. Raw pine will tend to turn a golden color as it ages.

To care for furniture finished with wax:
Besides frequent dusting, we recommend you re-wax your oil/wax furniture with paste wax every six months to a year, depending on how much wear the furniture receives.

We use BiosShield Wax finish, available at woodworking supply shops. For tips on using wax, see the BioShield website.
