Our products are made from gypsum composite. There are multiple variations of this material out there (as for example with concrete) but the type we use, has been tested for over 40 years in architectural/design/art work and movie set design. While it is very strong, has a soft feeling and is waterproof, it can get dirty of course. So how to clean your gypsum composite products? First, try to wash off the dirt with water and if needed a little bit of very mild soap. If that doesn’t work, very fine sandpaper (1000 + ) can be a solution. Finish off your sanded product with wetting the whole product and drying it again completely and egelay with a soft towel.
Don’t use our decorative products to store/display naked food. Only when it’s specifically specified that the product is suitable for naked food, it’s permitted.
Our coasters are sealed but as no sealer is 100% effective, wipe off any spill immediately to be sure to avoid any stains. Most stains can be wiped away until 24h after spilling but stains derived from e.g. red wine/coffee are very corrosive and eat away sealers. You should compare gypsum composite products with concrete countertops. They are very beautiful and strong but they do require carefulness and are prone to stains.
==> Planting with wet earth leads to a big mess. Therefore always plant a plant in our pots without water and with dry earth. Once you are done, you can water it as much as the plant needs.
==> As our pots don’t have drainage holes, we recommend putting small drainage stones inside the bottom of your planter before planting in order to prevent rotting of roots.
==> If you don’t use drainage stones, always ensure your soil is moist but not wet and avoid build up of standing water in the bottom of the planter to prevent rotting of roots.
