How do I take care of my makau carved from wood? To ensure your makau carved from wood remains in good condition, Po'okela applys a multi-layer water-resistant coating to all makau's carved from wood. Additionally, you should occasionally wipe it down with a cloth to remove any grease or residue build-up. Po'okela has been testing his secret cure method for over 5 years and his test pendant has held up under the normal wear and tear of exposing the wood to soap in the shower and salt water in the ocean with no discoloration or deterioration. All in all, you can wear the pendant without worry of discoloration or the pendant getting damaged from normal wear and tear.
