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.
Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for wooden furniture made of Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine. To restore the colour of sun-bleached woods we recommend using Rose Gold or Antique Gold* (see note below)
Rose Gold is a medium shade beeswax polish specially formulated for use on Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry, and Honey Oak furniture or similar coloured woods.
Antique Gold is a dark beeswax polish designed for use on dark and antique woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Elm or similar dark coloured woods.
*SUN-BLEACHING RESTORATION NOTE
The restoration of sun-bleached areas can be achieved with our Rose Gold or Antique Gold polishes when it is applied to a surface where the protective finish is dry or in a deteriorated state. Where the finish is in good order and sealing the surface, the dyes in our polishes will be prevented from being absorbed by the sun bleached area and it will have no effect. We would therefore recommend taking your furniture to a professional restorer who will remove the finish, revive the colour of the wood and then restore the finish once more. You might recommend our professional range of 1L tins of beeswax polishes while you're there!
Thankyou very much! I enjoyed using all the three types of beeswax, and the kit with its necessary additions was very helpful! And the explanation you sent me about the way of using the wax is so useful! The best service and the best products possible in this field! Thank you very much again!
You have to love this polish, the results are absolutely amazing. Thanyou Gilboy's you have an absolutely first class product, and a first class company to deal with. Many thanks
Great wax smell and finish on pine table is wonderful . Great product and great service so ordered more
Called them up for advice before buying and they were so helpful and friendly. Order was dispatched the same day.
I bought the starter kit with the antique gold polish as per advice and it was perfect.
The small touches of the sweet pea seeds and the personalised note as well as the info booklet elevated it so far above anything else.
Premium service, premium product. I can’t recommend them enough
Absolutely blown away by the efficient and very speedy service. Equally, love the Polishing Kit' and now need to get waxing. Cannot recommend highly enough
I have a coffer from the mid-late 1600s that is dark oak and of all the products that I've tried nothing has really brought out the 'life' in the wood, at least not long-term - it just looks dark and flat and lifeless. I'd Googled "Best polish antiques" and Gilboy's popped up so I ordered a jar of the Antique Gold and gave it a go. It was a bit of a work-out buffing the polish after application, but the result was well worth the sweat and the cost of international shipping. My coffer glows! The varied tones in the wood are visible for the first time and it really does appear to glow from within, not just on its surface. I'm so thrilled I've ordered another jar of the Antique Gold and a jar of the Rose Gold - everything in the house is getting the treatment!
HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX
- Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
- 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
- Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden
- 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 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.
Your purchase 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.
