HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

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

Fabulous product

Reviving an old table that was in an embarrassingly poor condition having sat in a garage for a few years. I watched the Gilboys video and was inspired to have a go myself. I used the Antique Gold wax which was fabulous and really brought it back to life. The service was excellent and my order arrived within 2 days, plus I was able to get advice from Simon as I went along which helped enormously as it was the first time I’d ever attempted anything like this.
Great company and great product. I particularly love the fact that a box of sweet pea seeds comes with the order...they’re now planted and hopefully will attract lots of bees over the Summer.

Gilboys Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit

This is the first time I have ever ordered this kind of product or attempted any such work on a piece of wooden furniture. Gilboys products are wonderful, exactly as described, beautifully presented, and what's more really easy to use.
I was inspired by the videos Simon Gilboy filmed and has put on YouTube, very watchable, clear concise, not a how to do it but how they would go about restoring a piece of furniture.
I purchased the double kit, I wasn't 100% sure how dark the polish would be, however I have used both of the polishes now on different furniture. It's really easy to use, the polish brings out a lovely protective shine on your furniture, I just love it.
I'm so inspired that I've just purchased an early 19th century Mahogany drop down desk and I'm about to order some more Gilboys product in order to bring this piece back to its former glory.
Keep up the great work Gilboys, the product is great worth every penny, my furniture thanks you. ☺️
