Background Care

How to Look After Your Background

Whilst the backgrounds are durable, colourfast, water and stain resistant you will be testing it by scattering it with high pigment foods such as turmeric and beetroot. You can wipe clean the background with a soft damp cloth or kitchen paper, but do not rub with excessive pressure. Here are a few more tips:

  • Keep it out of direct sunlight and in a cool dry room
  • Try to store it laid flat or very upright – you could store it in the packaging box it came in
  • Avoid stacking your backgrounds on top of one another, but if you do, create a bit of space between each board by lining them with a sheet of card.
  • The background is designed for decorative use only. It is not advised to consume food which has been placed on the surface.

Most importantly, have fun with the backgrounds! I love to seeing how you use them. If you’re on Instagram do to tag me: @fifbackgrounds #fifbackgrounds.
