HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  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 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.

As it says on the label "Pure Gold"

If everyone took the trouble to look after their customers the way that Gilboy's do, the world would be a better place. A tin of polish from them is like a gift from a true friend. This is the best polish I have ever come across and fills the room with a wonderful natural aroma. I cannot speak too highly of Gilboy's.

First time user

Firstly great service and superb packaging. Most importantly a really fantastic product ,equipped with the complete starter pack I set to work....my beginners attempt at bringing a late 17th century Japanese tansu/ chest back to life. I had watched the Gilboys YouTube just to make sure I had some idea.
Pictures show the incredible difference that a light application brought about. Thankyou so much and I,m looking forward to some other projects as well as finishing off this one!

A perfect product to finish a restoration project

Our project involved us stripping back old varnish and stain from an oak dining table and bringing back the natural colour along with a new set of legs.

I would highly recommend the Polish, it wonderfully brought out the natural colour in the wood and has a nice feel to it. I had a few questions and the team where very responsive and helpful thought-out my project. The YouTube guides are also very helpful and I would highly recommend watching a few.

Wow!

Fab kit. I bought it to bring some life back into my nan’s 1930s dining set as I’d finally got the seats redone. They look amazing. Easy to use and I’ll definitely be back for a refill - especially as I’ve used most of the pot! Add a great product to lovely customer service touches and why would you go anywhere else! Thank you!
