Cookware

Low to medium heat, handwash, use silicone or wooden materials. The exterior can stain especially underneath if fats or liquids drip down and burn. In order to help prevent staining, we recommend always using low to medium heat and gently cleaning your cookware once cool.

Underbed Storage

If your bins do happen to get dirty using a vacuum on them lightly can help as well as a little water and a rag for any spills. These are best used for seasonal storage versus everyday use. Due to the nature of the recycled felt each lid does have a slightly different fit. Check out our underbed page for tips on how to put them on.

Materials

For felt products, vacuum gently.

Use gentle all purpose cleaner and wipe clean using a warm damp cloth.

We recommend keeping our true wood products in dry, non-humid environments, and kept away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances that produce heat.

For your Equal Parts cutting board: Always hand-wash with dish soap and water, as the dishwasher will degrade the quality of wood over time. To tackle stains, sprinkle a dash of salt over the surface of the board, then use half of a lemon to rub it in. The salt will help lift the stains and the lemon juice will leave it smelling great. Once a month it is important to moisturize your cutting board with some mineral oil or beeswax. Reach out to us for more tips and resources!

Use gentle all purpose cleaner and wipe clean using a warm damp cloth. Be sure to dry thoroughly.

For metal cooking utensils such as knives always be sure to hand wash.

Always start by warming a smidge of oil or butter on low heat. We recommend oils with high smoke points, like coconut, avocado, and peanut—they create less residue and are easier to clean.

Cook on low-medium heat whenever possible. High heat can degrade the effectiveness of the non-stick coating over time. To avoid surface scratches, use silicone or wooden utensils.

Hand-washing your pots and pans is always best—use warm water, soap, and a soft sponge (no steel wool). Dry with a towel as soon as possible to avoid water spots.

Burnt food: Warm a cup of water and vinegar in the pan, bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Add a dash of baking soda and scrub lightly with a sponge. That should do the trick, but for any remaining residue, use a thicker paste of baking soda and water. Cleaning agents like Bar Keeper’s Friend also work well.

Our silicone utensils are dishwasher safe. For any surface stains or lingering odors, we recommend treatment with a couple of dishwasher cycles Adding lemon juice to the baking soda can also help—and not to mention, make your kitchen smell really nice!and a good 'ole scrub with a nonabrasive cleaner like baking soda or Barkeeper's Friend.
