Setup/Care

These pieces can really withstand a beating! Cleaning them with just good old soap and water is best. We recommend Simple Green when they get really grimy, but please limit use of actual "cleaners". If food or other items become stuck or dried on to the surface, just soak area with warm water for 5-10 min. and use a soft cloth to break item free. Please never use anything abrasive as they will scratch the finish.

How it Works

Whimsical uses wood that is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. FSC is an independent, international nonprofit organization whose membership is comprised of more than 500 environmental groups, progressive companies, forestry professionals, social scientists and groups representing labor, church and indigenous people's interests. They have established a set of international forest management standards, and offers certification only to those organizations that comply with these strict environmental and social standards.

Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air, and according to the EPA, is considered to be one of the top 5 hazards to human health. Paints and finishes are among the leading causes, releasing low-level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. They poison groundwater and contain ozone-depleting contaminants. The source of these toxins is a variety of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), which, until recently, were essential to the performance of the paint. These are the fumes that you smell while you paint, and usually for several days after. A VOC is an organic chemical that becomes a breathable gas at room temperature. Some examples of these are ethylene glycol, vinyl chloride and mercury. VOCs in paint usually come from the additives to the paint such as fungicides, biocides, color, and spreadability agents. These high levels of VOC's in paints can cause headaches, allergic reactions, and health problems in the very old, very young, and those with chronic illness. Fortunately, new environmental regulations, and consumer demand, have led to the development of low-VOC and zero-VOC paints and finishes that are durable and cost-effective.
