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.

    5 Star Product

    This is my second purchase (big can this time) of the rose gold wax. I’m so completely thrilled with the results on my mid century furniture. Thank you for making such a great product.

    A great product

    I came across Gilboy’s on YouTube and was inspired to try my hand at restoration. So far I’ve restored an old wooden box which was rather knackered, scratched and looking much the worse for wear.
    The YouTube videos were really enjoyable and gave me the confidence to try it for myself.
    The rose gold polishing kit was very easy to use and, in my opinion, has produced great results.
    I’m looking forward to my next restoration project and learning more from Gilboy’s YouTube videos.

    Rose gold on mid century unit

    I used the rose gold as advised in the Gilboys videos. Very easy to use, covers light scratches very well. Smells divine. I would use weekly if I could just for the smell. Going to order some pure gold for an old pine console table. Looking forward to the bees enjoying the sweet peas. Quality product which I would not hesitate in recommending.

    delightful

    Although this is rather expensive, it is so beautifully presented it felt like receiving a gift. I do not have antique furniture but having failed to find a replacement for our Jentique 80s dining set I decided to try to renovate it. I have so far only polished two chairs but they do look much better.
