HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
  2. 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
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden for 20-30 minutes
  4. 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.

Best furniture wax I have ever used.

I first found out about Gilboys when I came across your Youtube videos. You seemed so genuine, unlike many youtube "influencers" that I thought I'd give your product a try.
I ordered a pack of the Antique Gold and was amazed at the personal touch in the packaging. I'm not a furniture restorer, just a (fairly) normal householder. We do have a lot of semi antique furniture and the pieces that I have waxed so far, now look better than they ever have. I've added some Pure Gold to the mix for lighter woods and I may purchase some Leather Conditioner for the interior of our Jaguar!
The sweet peas have been planted for the bees although we always have looked after them. (We have had a wonderful carpet of dandelions this year. )

fabulous product - and thoughtfully produced and packaged.

At last a furniture wax which actually does what it promises. I have an old oak settle which had been in the garden, I like the distressed look but needed to feed the wood and give it some depth, the wax polish has given in a glorious subtle finish, looks cared for but not over restored. The whole buying experience was a joy, beautiful packaging with a thoughtful gift (don't want to ruin the surprise). I never thought ordering furniture polish could put a smile on your face - but honestly the experience was fabulous. Am going to treat myself to another shade!
