Picture this: a gorgeous Weight Plate tray made from the finest dark walnut wood. Yeah, you heard that right – we only work with the good stuff. Quality is our middle name, and we wouldn't settle for anything less! Now, here's the secret sauce to ensuring our trays are food safe: we season each and every one of them with food-grade mineral oil. But wait, there's more! We finish them off with a heavenly blend of genuine beeswax, the toughest natural wax known to man (Brazilian carnauba wax), and pure USP Food Grade Mineral Oil. Talk about a match made in woodworking heaven!

We want your Weight Plate tray to stay beautiful and functional for years to come. So, we're spilling our tried-and-true tips for maintenance. Listen up, folks! If you're using your tray to serve up some scrumptious snacks, here's the drill: give it a good scrub with warm, soapy water after each use, and make sure to dry it thoroughly with a clean towel. That's the secret sauce to maintaining its sleekness and charm.

But what if life throws some stains or funky odours your way? Fear not! We've got you covered. Grab some coarse salt, sprinkle it onto your tray, and then get ready for some citrus magic. Take a fresh lemon half, rub it gently into the salt, and let that dynamic duo work its wonders. Give it a few minutes, rinse with warm water, and dry it off completely. Voilà! Stains and odours, be gone!
