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.

I needed some hard-to-get oil-free 0000 grade wire wool for smoothing gessoed panels. Gilboys product is excellent quality, well-packaged, and sent extremely quickly. Lovely note, brochure, and sweet pea seeds in the package - really cheered me up in the middle of lockdown blues. Have passed the brochure on to parents who are contemplating restoring their wooden furniture. Many thanks, will purchase from you again, and thoroughly recommend.

I've been very impressed with the quality and value for money of the product, but more importantly the customer service and delivery of my order was exceptional. Thank you for sharing your passion.
My wire wool arrived in reasonable time bearing in mind the posts are slow at the moment, and I am very pleased with the quality of the wire wool. Thanks so much.
The shine and the product are wonderful. Am looking forward to buying more.
Due to illness in the family I haven't been able to use the product sent yet.
I'm sure these products will be as good as all of the other Gilboys products thanks .
I felt like I was feeding my eight Georgian era chairs.
Shiny and healthy was the result. The large polishing cloth is a must
