How To Clean & Care For Acacia Wood

Acacia is a fast-growing evergreen tree, primarily found in Africa and Australia. This sustainable tree is known for its durability and distinctive wood grain patterns. Just like most natural wood, acacia wood holds its beautiful appearance much longer when given proper care. Keep your acacia wood tableware or furniture looking its best by following these easy cleaning and care tips!


How To Care For Acacia Wood Tableware

  1. Hand wash in warm soapy water immediately after use. Rinse with warm running water. Then dry with a soft cloth or dish rack to air-dry.
  2. To enhance the natural beauty of the wood, condition with mineral oil after each cleaning.
  3. Store your tableware in a cool, dry location when it’s not in use.
  4. Do not leave soaking in water or exposed to heat.
  5. Not for use in the microwave or dishwasher.

Acacia Wood Cutting Board Cleaning Tips

  • Hand Wash Only: Wash cutting boards by hand with warm, soapy water. Avoid immersing them in water for an extended period to prevent warping or cracking.
  • Sanitize with Vinegar: For disinfecting, mix equal parts water and white vinegar, and apply it to the cutting board. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing and drying thoroughly.
  • Oil Regularly: Apply food-grade mineral oil to the cutting board every few weeks to keep it moisturized and prevent it from drying out.

Acacia Wood Bowl Cleaning Tips

  • Hand Wash Gently: Wash wooden bowls by hand using mild dish soap and warm water. Avoid using a dishwasher, as the high heat and moisture can lead to warping.
  • Dry Promptly: After washing, towel-dry the bowls immediately to prevent moisture absorption.
  • Oil Maintenance: Periodically apply a small amount of food-grade mineral oil to the bowls to maintain their natural luster and prevent the wood from becoming too dry.


How To Care For Acacia Wood Furniture

  1. Avoid placing your acacia wood furniture in direct sunlight. If using outside, keep your furniture under an umbrella or in a shaded area.
  2. Clean spills with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Dry with a second cloth or air-dry.
  3. Condition your furniture with wax or wood preservative immediately after cleaning.
  4. Keep your furniture alive and periodically apply additional wood preservative.

Additional Table & Furniture Cleaning Tips

  • Dust Regularly: Dust furniture regularly with a soft, lint-free cloth or a soft brush attachment on a vacuum. This prevents the buildup of dirt that can scratch the surface.
  • Spot Cleaning: For stains or spills, use a damp cloth with mild soap or wood cleaner. Wipe the affected area gently and dry immediately.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Steer clear of harsh chemicals, abrasives, or furniture polishes containing silicones, as they can damage the wood’s finish over time.

How to Clean Acacia Wood Flooring

  1. Regularly sweep your hardwood floor with a soft-bristle or swivel-headed broom with a microfiber cloth, such as a Swiffer.
  2. Avoid using a vacuum to reduce the risk of scratching the surface of the hardwood.
  3. Use only hardwood flooring cleaners, and follow the manufacturer’s directions. Some cleaners can be applied directly to the floor, while others should not.
  4. Do not use any wax-based or ammonia-based cleaning products.
  5. Do not wet-mop your acacia wood flooring. Even though it is water-resistant, frequent water contact will damage the floor over time.
  6. Instead of an old fashion wet mop, use a spray mop that is specifically made for hardwood floors. (such as the Bona Hardwood Premium Spray Mop)

Additional Floor Cleaning Tips

  • Sweep Regularly: Use a soft-bristle broom or vacuum with a soft attachment to remove dirt and debris regularly. This prevents scratches and protects the surface.
  • Damp Mop Carefully: Mix a small amount of mild, pH-balanced wood floor cleaner with water. Dampen a soft mop or cloth with the solution and clean the floor, ensuring it’s not overly wet. Dry the floor immediately with a clean, dry cloth to prevent moisture damage.

By following these simple guidelines, you can ensure the cleanliness and longevity of your acacia wood floors, furniture, cutting boards, and bowls. Regular care will preserve the natural charm of acacia wood, making it a lasting and beautiful addition to your home.
