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.

    Turned a task into a pleasure!

    Having bought an antique rosewood chair that had been abused - chemically stripped, I think - I went on line to look for "best wax for antiques", and immediately found Gilboy's. When the package arrived, it was a pure delight - better than any fancy hamper! But using it was even better: it is a pleasure to apply, and the results are just wonderful. I immediately turned to my battered Georgian gateleg table, which I had carefully sanded back years ago, but had never been able to get to a nice finish; it had been lurking under a cloth. The cloth is now cart aside, and the table is absolutely glowing! And so am I... many, many thanks. I shall be hunting for more things to polish, and no doubt coming back soon for refills.

    A wonderful product. I have a walnut staircase at home and after polishing it now looks wonderful. I also polished an old pitch pine door and several pieces of furniture with remarkable results.

    Amazed

    I have a lot of antique oak furniture and thought it was about time I did some restoration. Searched the web for how to restore old oak furniture and came across Gillboys web page and video. Was so impressed that I sent off for the twin pack of Gillboys Rose Gold Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit.
    Once I started using the polish with the 0000 grade wire wool I just couldn’t stop. The product is so easy to use following Gillboys instructions and the finish is just amazing. Still have an 18c tall case clock, 19c Welsh dresser and a full height antique oak corner cupboard to do and am really looking forward to the finished job.
    So happy I found Gillboys beeswax antique furniture polish, will not use anything else in the future.
