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.

As part of the overall purchasing experience the wire wool did not disappoint. I bought pure gold, wire wool and sought advice. All performed to the highest standard. If I had been buying the wire wool as a single item I would judge it to be an excellent product but expensive for the quantity received. I had just enough to do the item of furniture that was my project.
Prompt shipping, nicely packaged and very good product. Refreshingly positive experience as though a relation was sending you a gift
Beautiful packaging, personalised note, some seeds and the jar of excellent wax with the very good wire wool. Exactly what I paid for. Quality and service :)
The excellent wool was promptly dispatched, along with the added complimentary box of seeds. A small touch but adds so much. Thank you again. Eileen
When your beautifully presented box arrived i thought WOW, opening it was such a pleasure my order of the Rose Gold Wax and the 000 Wire Wool were most beautifully packed. I loved the literature you provided and if i thought that was awesome your product knocks spots of others i have tried in the past years. It is easy to apply and yes wait no longer that 30 mins and don't over apply, a little goes a long way. Whoever reads this please believe my furniture looks so shiny and loved. And you made it all so personal and special. You love your product and so do I. Thank you
So impressed with the results I obtained with Rose Gold that I have already ordered the Antique Gold for our darker furniture. Not only is the polish a top performer, other businesses could learn from Gilboy’s superb customer service.
I only needed wire wool, but it arrived beautifully packaged with a little packet of seeds and a handwritten note. It's a pleasure ordering from Gilboys, it feels like you're getting a little slice of expertise.
