Buffing Cloth - 100% Cotton, Open-Weave, No Smear

  • 100% Pure Cotton
  • Open Weave
  • 2x 60cm lengths 


Type: Polishing Accessories

Our buffing cloth has been used for polishing by the restorers in our workshop for the past twenty years.

The open weave of this 100% cotton cloth ensures that too much heat does not build up through the friction of polishing. Too much friction and therefore heat will melt the top few molecules of wax and create smearing.

The open weave of our cloth makes life a lot easier when it comes to buffing the wax and achieving an even finish using considerably less elbow power than conventional towelling would require. 

EVERY order that leaves the Gilboy's workshop has a complimentary box of sweet peas seeds. We hope you will plant and grow them to provide a rich source of nectar by way of a 'Thank You' to the bees who make the beeswax in our polishes.

Buffing cloth

Thanks for the super soft polishing cloth, it made a lovely job of my ash waxed media unit.
Thanks also for the personal touch, it made dealing with you a pleasure.
I would definitely use you’re products again.

Hi Ian. Thank you. We really want our customers to feel they can connect with us on a more personal level as well as producing a high quality product. Best Wishes Simon
Buffing cloth.

Delivery time was excellent, the quality of the cloth is far superior to the buffing cloths available in my home town in France. I found their instructional videos very helpful.

Really wonderful service

Not only did I get quality products on time, they came with a handwritten thank you note and a packet of flower seeds to help nurture bees in the garden. I’ll be planting those in the spring and returning to Gilboy’s. Fantastic service. Small things like that make all the difference. Oh, and did I say my antique dining table now gleams in the light?


I felt like I was feeding my eight Georgian era chairs.
Shiny and healthy was the result. The large polishing cloth is a must

Great service

Very pleased with the service given from start to finish with a little extra gift on top.

Great service, great product

Great service, great product, thsnks

Good Buffer but too many bits

Good buffer material , but as it is cut from a roll all the cut edges shed bits . Rather annoying.

Hi Alex. Thanks for your review. We did look at getting the cloth hemmed but it wasn't possible with the open weave of the pure cotton. The pay off is, it buffs our polish beautifully. We do understand it could shed small bits of cotton off the cut end but if you tuck them in it works nicely. Thank you and sorry at the same time.
Excellent product

This is my second order from Gilboys and I was again very pleased with the product. The packaging could be improved. My first purchase has really dried out since it was sent to me with a broken jar seal which should have been noticed when it was package.

Hi Jackie. Im sorry if the seal had somehow been compromised. We now use Le-Parfait jars that have a fantastic seal on them. I apologise if it was missed in the packing. Please message us if you ever would like some more. I will add some additional accessories to compensate for any loss. Kind regards ~Simon
