Maintenance of your Outdoor Mud Kitchen

Periodic cleaning of your eucalyptus furniture will help to maintain the general appearance and prevent dirt from building up. You may hose the wood off, but we do not recommend using a high pressure washer. Clean using a mild solution of warm water and a little detergent (you can even use a few tablespoons of bleach). Then rinse with fresh water. Some people prefer to cover their furniture when they are not using it for long periods of time, which will help keep it clean and protected (especially in areas with a lot of tree sap or dust), but is not essential. When left outdoors, eucalyptus furniture will naturally weather to a silver grey color. You will be able to notice  the "greying" after a few months, depending on the amount of sun and rain your furniture is exposed to. Total weathering usually takes 6-8 months.

We recommend using a natural oil to maintain the beautiful timber surface and for delaying the weathering process.

Kids love it.... need to maintain

5 stars
Our children at our preschool love this mud kitchen! We do find that we need to stain it every 2 years, but that is easy. We have had it for 4 years now and it's been great. I do wish they would sell the pump separately thought because we now need a new one.

This "Mud Kitchen" comes with instructions indicating it should not be used with sand. I'm not sure how else a child would create mud except with water and sand. Perhaps renaming it to just outdoor kitchen would be better. It is intended only for water. Keeping the sand out will prove to be a challenge for us, we are not sure how long the pump will work. It is intended to be outside however it will require maintenance of oiling the wood, etc. according to the instructions. The assembly is easy, although not top quality. Our pump leaks and we are working on fixing it (we did not contact Kaplan), the hose to pull the water up was too short so we purchased another one and there is no bucket to college the water at the bottom, you have to find something which is challenging to work around the pump. This unit is made in China and one of the hex screws did not align to hold the pieces together, the other 7 seem to be enough to keep it together. Ideally the hooks would be pre-drilled for the higher board to support longer "tools".
