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 for 20-30 minutes
  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.

    Wonderful 'how to' video

    The video showing in detail how to restore Nathan teak coffee tables led me to this site. I am confident enough to try to do the job myself and know the Gilboys products will be perfect for the job. However, I haven't started yet and there is no rush.

    Pack arrived on time and not used yet. Did send email for some further advice following earlier email but have not had reply. I do understand if you cannot enter long correspondence on everyone’s problems. Have found website videos very helpful.

    Wonderful product and service

    My second purchase from Gilboys, I’ve used Rose Gold and Antique Gold. The wax is marvellous stuff. I’ve watched some of Simon’s videos and learnt a lot about how to use the products.

    I Absolutely Love This Polish

    As soon as I received it I opened it. The smell is wonderful. I can remember going to my Aunts when I was very young and this is what her house smelled like. All the old beautiful furniture she had was beautiful I have an antique Hepplewhite buffet and it's beautiful however the top was looking so dull. Wow did this do the job. I have other things I needed waxed and this will be wonderful. My gosh for years I've used "spray polish". This is the real thing. It's perfect. I wish I knew about this years ago. Thank you for creating something so wonderful. I had to buy the kit after buying the container of the wax. I never want to run out. I wish you the best in the future! I wish I can work right where you make this.....it smells so good and so clean. I can't describe it. Thank you. Susan

    Very good product, would definitely recommend. Starter kit is nicely presented and packaged. If you are on a budget then the non wax items can probably be purchased a little cheaper from most hardware
    stores and better valeting cloths are available but its convenient to have it all arrive ready to go. The only thing missing that would have been helpful,is some instruction on how to take the sheen back a little. It's not a varnish, so will dull down a little naturally over time and is already starting to do this, but there's probably a short cut if you put a little too much on initially. My advice would be use sparingly and buff and then probably repeat if necessary.

    Fabulous product

    We initially bought a starter kit to polish some lovely wooden peaces of furniture we have.we were so unimpressed by the results that we order 2 if the larger jars for a project we were doing. We sanded down and stained a couple of IKEA unit. We used the wax to give protect and give them depth if colour that you cant get from just staining. They have come up beautifully and we are so pleased with them. The customer service from zgilboys is fantastic. The products are great and are delivered quickly and are of top quality. I have recovered.mended the wax to many of my friends. Ir is simply great and you get quality results from using it. Highly recommended and will buy again. Thanks for making this fabulous product

    Amazing polishing kit!

    This kit is brilliant, I watched one of Gilboys YouTube videos to help when I restored my table. This kit arrived fast, and was packaged perfectly. Its definitely the best purchases I have made to help. When I was a bit unsure on restoring my table I got in contact with them and Simon was brilliant at responding, really knowledgeable and helpful of what I needed to do to help. Great product and support from Gilboys I will definitely be purchasing from them again! Thanks so much!
