Query : what would be the best finish for a hardwood kitchen countertop - non-toxic, that doesn't show liquid stains and doesn't darken the timber too much
Answer: Hi Miranda,
The answer to your question is Kunos Countertop Oil by Livos. It is a clear oil which needs to be buffed between coats, and needs to be treated gently for the first 4 weeks, which is the curing time for any surface coating.
The beauty of an oiled finish is that you can re-oil it, or part of it, whenever the mood strikes (or accidental damage dictates). Kunos Countertop Oil (by Livos) is what we also recommend for tabletops, coffee tables etc. It is food safe, and certified as suitable for toys by European standards.
