We have found that this 0000 grade wire wool applies the wax very evenly and easily to the surface of the wood. The wool is very soft to touch and when used with even pressure will allow you to achieve a very professional antique finish. Not only will it apply the wax correctly but it will also remove any surface dirt and dust at the same time, this in turn, in many cases removes the need to clean the surface prior to waxing (as seen in our videos)
It is also very effective when applying wax to turned legs and feet, allowing the wax to reach in and clean old wax and dirt out whilst applying it at the same time.
We also sometimes use this wire/steel wool to dull a surface prior to waxing and again to dull the finish to a satin finish after waxing. This gives a wonderful satin-waxed look and feel to the finish. It also feels fantastic to touch.
How to apply on flat surfaces..
When using on flat surfaces always apply the wire wool with an open flat hand with even pressure, also ensure when applying again on flat surfaces to move your hand in a straight a line as possible otherwise your arm will naturally arc at the ends creating the same arc in the finish. Please be aware that wire wool is a light abrasive and will leave very very fine scratches on the surface of the finish. We have found that this ‘oil free’ wire / steel wool applies the wax very evenly and easily to the surface of the wood.

Thanks for the super soft polishing cloth, it made a lovely job of my ash waxed media unit.
Thanks also for the personal touch, it made dealing with you a pleasure.
I would definitely use you’re products again.
Delivery time was excellent, the quality of the cloth is far superior to the buffing cloths available in my home town in France. I found their instructional videos very helpful.
Not only did I get quality products on time, they came with a handwritten thank you note and a packet of flower seeds to help nurture bees in the garden. I’ll be planting those in the spring and returning to Gilboy’s. Fantastic service. Small things like that make all the difference. Oh, and did I say my antique dining table now gleams in the light?
I felt like I was feeding my eight Georgian era chairs.
Shiny and healthy was the result. The large polishing cloth is a must
Very pleased with the service given from start to finish with a little extra gift on top.
Great service, great product, thsnks
Good buffer material , but as it is cut from a roll all the cut edges shed bits . Rather annoying.
This is my second order from Gilboys and I was again very pleased with the product. The packaging could be improved. My first purchase has really dried out since it was sent to me with a broken jar seal which should have been noticed when it was package.
Always love Gilboy’s product
Very good quality cubes
