Care & Maintenance

We are committed to crafting the finest furniture for you. To ensure your LITOOC furniture remains in great condition, please follow these maintenance tips:

  1. Apply the recommended wood oil or Rubio Monocoat Refresh Eco, depending on the finish; at least once a year
  2. Tighten screws and bolts from time to time. 
  3. Wood is a dynamic material, and its surface will change over time, influenced by light exposure.
  4. Keep furniture out of direct sunlight. Wood surfaces, including those with lacquer, are sensitive to moisture, heat, and alcohol. Wipe up spills immediately.
  5. Avoid partially covering surfaces, as this can lead to uneven color changes.
  6. Do not place furniture directly against radiators or heating devices.
  7. Start with the gentlest cleaning products.
  8. Avoid abrasive cleaners like scouring powder, metal polishes, or cleaners containing ammonia.
  9. Indoor furniture should remain indoors.
  10. Sweat is acidic and can damage natural materials like wood and leather.
  11. If you experience any issue with your furniture, you are always welcome to reach out to our customer care

For everyday cleaning and specific stain removal, please follow the below instructions.


Use a clean cloth for everyday dusting. For deeper cleaning, first remove loose dirt. Use a cloth dampened with a solution of water and a universal cleaning detergent, such as Rubio Monocoat Surface Care. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly with a clean cloth to prevent streaks or blotches.

Stain Removal: 

To remove stains, use a cloth dampened with hot water and mild soap or a universal cleaning detergent like Rubio Monocoat Surface Care. For common stains like food, wine, or limescale, treat the area and then dry with a clean cloth.

For black or brown tannin stains caused by acid and water reactions, use Rubio Monocoat Tannin Remover. After treatment, wipe the area with a clean, dry cloth.



Regular cleaning of your textile surfaces is crucial to maintain the appearance and extend the lifespan of the upholstery. Dust and dirt can wear down the fabric and diminish its fire-retardant properties. Vacuum frequently, ideally on a weekly basis, using half power where suitable.

Stain Removal:

Acting quickly can make it easier to remove spills and prevent stains, though complete stain removal cannot be guaranteed. Start by scraping off any liquids or hardened residues with a spoon or scoop. Vacuum any loose particles before further cleaning, and use an absorbent napkin or cloth to soak up liquids.

For wet stains, dab gently with a lint-free cloth or sponge moistened with warm, detergent-free water. Avoid using other chemicals or detergents, including during steam cleaning.

For non-greasy stains, dab carefully with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in warm water. To prevent edge marks, dab in a circular motion towards the center of the stain using a clean lint-free cloth. For greasy stains, use appropriate detergents or solvents, but always test any stain-removal products on a less visible area first to ensure they do not affect the fabric.

Ensure the fabric is completely dry before use.

These tips are recommendations and cannot guarantee complete stain removal. For larger or more stubborn stains, we advise contacting a professional dry cleaner.


  • Avoid Rubbing: Do not rub the material vigorously as this may cause color loss or damage to the fabric.
  • Jeans Dye Transfer: Dark jeans, due to excess dye, may stain textiles. Cleaning and washing might not always remove these stains effectively.
  • Solvents Caution: Exercise caution when using solvents, as they can dissolve the materials underneath the upholstery.
  • Cleaning Agents: Never use undiluted detergents, bleach, ammonia, or soaps designed for hard surfaces.


Leather is a natural material that requires proper care and maintenance to preserve its appeal over the years. With the right care, leather can become even more beautiful as time passes, ensuring its longevity for generations.


Only vacuum clean with a soft brush. Never use soap or water otherwise the velvety look and feel will disappear. Do not apply leather grease or soak the leather. Avoid any chemical products, such as saddle soap, other leather cleaners or household products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects.

Stain Removal:

For stain removal we recommend using a soap flake solution. Whip the soap flakes into hot water and let the solution cool to room temperature. Apply the foam all over the leather with a soft cloth. Only use the foam and avoid soaking the leather. When the leather is dry, polish it with a soft, dry cotton cloth.Warning

Avoid placing leather in direct sunlight or extreme heat. Avoid soaking leather. Avoid contact with sharp objects.
