Timber Blinds fade from sun exposure and can easily warp and split if you don’t care for them. The same applies to timber floors, external doors or any natural timber product. This not only looks bad, but it also means added expenses, given untreated timber will rot and need replacing.

There are 2 easy steps in maintaining your raw timber blinds:

  1. Wipe down your timber blinds from excess dust.
  2. You will need a small bowl, sponge and Orange Oil. Simply pour the Orange Oil into a small bowl, dip the sponge and apply to your blinds.  To ensure you don’t experience oil dripping at the end of the task, remember to squeeze the sponge from excess oil before applying to your blinds. It's really that simple!


  • If you are maintaining your timbers, one coat should be sufficient. If your timber blinds haven't been treated in a while, it may require a second covering.
  • Remember to coat both sides of your blinds with orange oil.
