Aspen & Maple FAQ's

Teething Toy FAQ's

How can wood be anti-bacterial?

Wood is naturally anti-bacterial. Bacteria generally does not live long on wood, as opposed to plastic where it has a much longer life span and can more easily spread.  READ OUR ARTICLE for more information

How should I clean my teether?

You can give your teether the occasional spot clean, but do not dunk or soak your teether as this can cause the wood to warp. Rinsing can be done with a mild dish soap (we use a special fruit and veggie cleaner), followed by a pat and air dry. Please never put your teether in the dishwasher. 

What products can I use to seal my Aspen & Maple teether?

Aspen & Maple teethers are all-natural, come ready to gnaw, and sealing is not required! If you do choose to seal, we encourage using a mixture of high-quality organic beeswax and any food grade oil such as coconut oil or organic olive oil. Simply apply the mixture with a washcloth, let it soak in, wipe off excess, and you’re done! The wood grain will likely darken but this will affect neither the functionality nor the safety of your product.

I wet my teether and now it feels rough. Is there a fix for this?

Yes! If your teether has gotten wet and you haven't previously sealed it on your own, it may have a rough texture as the grain of the wood has probably been raised. You can either leave it like this, or go over it with a high-grit sanding paper or sponge.

How is it possible that wood doesn't splinter?

Believe it! Our beech wood is naturally rock-hard and goes through a rigorous hand-sanding process after it’s been cut. The wood is extremely solid, and your teether is as smooth as the little bum you’re likely diapering multiple times a day... Even after getting wet, your teether may get rough but never splinters.
