Type: Polishing Accessories


We have found that this 0000 grade steel 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 steel wire 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..

applying wax polish with 0000 steel wool

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 steel 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 steel wool applies the wax very evenly and easily to the surface of the wood.

Products are amazing

I watched the YouTube channel and was impressed so thought I would give the waxing kit a try..and I purchased extra wire wool...which as it turns out I didn't need..I have a few pieces of ercol and g plan thought I would need more... All my furniture has come up amazing. The best it's looked. If anyone is unsure about these kits..please don't be, it does what it says and is worth every penny. I'm now thinking about buying the leather cleaner.thank you A wonderful product.

Excellent customer service

Like most people I have ordered online often during the last year. The customer service, communication and product quality from Gilboys has been, without question, the best! If only every company valued their customers this way the world would be a happier place. My table thanks you too.
