5 star review on Amazon
Gilboy's Antique Gold polish outshines all the rest.
"I have used traditional Beeswax on my antique furniture for over forty years, but Gilboy's antique Gold Polish is outstanding, and out performs all the rest. Not only does the polish impart a deep lustrous shine to the wood, but it totally enhances the natural patina of the furniture, and it has a very pleasant perfume. The packaging is excellent, and the team who make it go out of their way to personalise every order. I am now converted to using this high standard and high class product."
(Grenville Johnson, Amazon reviewer 19-2-17)

 

We have developed our beeswax furniture polish to such a fine blend that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to three years.

Gilboy's Antique Gold polish outshines all the rest.

Having visited Gilboys showrooms last summer and listened to the craftsmen there speaking so passionately about making this wax, I decided to try it. Since receiving it, I have waxed a number of inherited antiques and it has polished them brilliantly. I will definitely buy this wax again and would recommend it to anyone who has antiques in need of a decent polish.

HOW TO APPLY BEESWAX POLISH IN 3 EASY STEPS:

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine ‘0000’ wire wool - (it’s like cotton wool to the touch) 
  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. Having allowed a few hours or overnight for the pure pine turpentine to slowly evaporate and the polish to harden, use a soft 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.

Every jar of Gilboy's Gold beeswax furniture polish is accompanied with a small box of sweet-pea seeds for you to plant and grow to provide more nectar for the amazing honey bees.

Hold on to our special reusable packaging and use it again to return your empty jar for a 25% discounted refill.

*Gilboy’s 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.
