Linoleum is an all-natural surface material, renowned for its elegance and durability. It has a smooth, matte finish that is warm to the touch. The impressive list of props goes on: linoleum is waterproof, absorbs sound, is antistatic, hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Its surfaces are not sensitive to marks or fingerprints. In fact, we urge you to try them for chalk doodles and writing.
The raw materials used to produce linoleum are all-natural: pine rosin, linseed oil, wood flour, limestone, and colour pigments. No toxic substances are released when linoleum is produced or used. So it’s no threat to humans or the environment. Once discarded, linoleum is biodegradable. So it will be slowly returned to Mother N.
Use and care
- Be careful: sharp and rough items may cause scratches on the surface.
- Avoid getting the plywood edges of the linoleum surface wet.
- Small scratches can be restored naturally and easily. Simply rub a raw walnut (NOT the shell) over it.
- For table plates: Prevent stubborn stains from forming by using coasters under flowerpots, vases, cups, etc.
- Remove stains and liquids on linoleum as quickly as possible.
- First, absorb the excess stain with clean paper towels.
- Clean the surface with a damp, soft, clean, cotton cloth soaked in a mixture of five drops of pH-neutral detergent (best is a natural dishwashing detergent) and one litre of lukewarm water.
- Please don’t use abrasive cleaners, such as soft scrub cleansers or scouring sponges.
- Wipe off with a new, dry, clean, cotton cloth.
- Let the surface dry naturally.
