Apply the oil with the included white sponge. Never pour the oil directly onto the wood. Apply an even layer of oil in the grain direction, let the oil penetrate for 10 minutes, then wipe off any excess oil with the included dry, lint free cloth. Leave the oil to dry for an hour and rub the surface with a clean, soft and lint free cloth until the surface is even. The surface will be surface dry after 24 hours, avoid placing anything on the table until it has dried completely. The oil will be fully hardend after 7 days. Do not use a wrung out cloth to clean the table before after the surface is fully hardend.
