HOW TO USE OUR BEESWAX POLISH

  1. Use the included ultra-soft steel wire wool to apply
  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 for 20-30 minutes
  4. Use the included open-weave cotton buffing cloth to gently buff the wax to your preferred level of lustre. An open-weave cloth helps to prevent smearing.

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.

Another superb product

I'd already purchased one set to tackle some dark oak furniture, but I wanted this set for some lighter pieces. Once again it worked a treat, giving a lovely glow to a mid-oak bookcase and giving a very battered little box that I picked up from an antique shop a bit of much needed tlc (I may give it another go in a week or so's time, as although the overall colour is good, it's in need of more care, I think). I also used it on one of the dark oak chests, and it gave it just the 'lift' it needed. Definitely the best brand of wax polishes I've used. Thank you!

Nice product

Great product, highly recommend it. Used it for a chess board with rosewood, mahogany and maple. Creates a nice surface which is slightly sticky/waxy. I found the smell to be quite strong for several days but then disappears.
