    HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

    Gilboys beesswax wood polish - 'antique gold' single jar

    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
    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 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.

    Quality item.

    Thank goodness for people still investing in quality. That is quality of website, quality of postage, quality of product and quality of aftercare. Gilboys make and provide quality goods. I am very happy with the furniture wax and put the fire on, made a pot of tea then started to wax and polish my old antique drawers which I had intended doing for over 20 years. Worth the wait. Lovely finish and so yes I am very happy with their product. Soon I am going to order their leather restorer and refresh my sofas. Thanks Gilboys.

    Antique Gold

    Fantastic furniture polish. Initially purchased the polish for my sun bleached desk, and very happy with the results. Ended up polishing all the other antiques in the house; it brings out the colour and grain of the wood really well.

    Thank you James. It's great to hear you have had success. And thank you for taking time to review it for us. Kind regards Simon
