HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
  1. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance
  2. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden for 20-30 minutes
  3. Use a soft buffing cloth to buff the wax to a deep and lustrous shine

Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.

If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish and then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.

*SECRET TRADE TIP:

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a cheap 1 inch trimmed paint brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it 20 to 30 minutes later with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth

Amazing Products

The products are amazing and the customer service is even more amazing. The hand written note was a perfect touch. Wax protects furniture better than the original finish.

Fantastic Company

On arriving at Gilboys’s shop to pick up my order I was really impressed by the welcome I received,Simon gave me some fantastic advice on how to prepare & restore my table & chairs. I followed his advice and the icing on the cake was the finish l got using pure gold beeswax.
If I have any furniture restoration projects in the future I will certainly use Gilboy products.
