ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:

  • We are not driven by a corporate cost-reduction ethos. We select our components based on quality and sustainability rather than the cheapest alternatives
  • 100% Plastic-free recyclable packaging
    • Recycled cardboard and paper from FSC-approved mixed sources
    • Packing tape that is paper & cotton based with a water-based gum adhesive which can be recycled along with the cardboard boxes
    • No polypropylene-based tape. We use biodegradable raffia twine.
  • No petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
  • Reusable Le Parfait jars with a Return & Refill discount scheme
  • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume

HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. For optimum application we recommend you use our 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
  4. Use the soft open-weave 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 standard shoe polish 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 the next day with the soft shoe brush.

Fast delivery, Great products

Furniture restoring kit arrived on time, the products are neatly boxed with a small box of great sweet pea seeds - lovely touch. I have a recycle project which will get underway soon, but I am confident these products will bring the G Plan tables back to life

Extremely pleased with all aspects of the Gilboys company; fast service to the States, exceptional products, and a personal note of thanks from Ian. I have been refinishing/restoring furniture and antiques for 40 years and I appreciate quality. I hope to be a repeat customer of Gilboys for years to come.

Great product, super presentation

Loving the Gilboy’s wax polish set. The whole experience has been exceptional, from the educational YouTube videos to the beautiful presentation box, to the performance of the products themselves. Can not recommend highly enough and I’m thrilled with the results. An absolution transformation of an 1870’s Victoria Oak partner desk. Thank you Simon!!

Got some life back.

The finish had faded and dulled in spots due to sunlight. Decided to give your wax a try. It worked quite well. I am impressed. While it is not perfect, it came back to 90% of original, which is quite good and definitely cheaper than having this redone. Will be testing further on other furniture.

Great finish for wood carvings

I got the starting kit to restore some older carvings done by another person and couldn't be happier with the result. The wax is perfect and I am now going to use it on my regular work as well. Also the little ''scratch fix cubes'' worked great on fixing small cracks on those old carvings. Very, very happy I found this product.

love of antiques

The 3 jars of polish have been used. The furniture now gleams and encourages you to stroke it and enjoy it again.Also the room just smelt good after the waxing.

Brighter Times Ahead

Restored this old clock which was in the Attic. When my husband, was a lad, he used to cover the face up when he was doing his revising, so he wouldn't know the time he spent revising. Used the Gilboys medium wax on the casing. The clock now has pride of place and the wood looks rich and shining. Brings back happy memories.
