    HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

    Gilboys beesswax wood polish - 'antique gold' single jar

    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
    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 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.
