The kit can be used on new wood to protect and maintain or used to restore older items of wood. If restoring, follow the below instructions.
Step 1 – Preparation
Give the wood a good clean using the Wood Cleaner to start. This can be done in conjunction with the medium sanding pad. This cleaning action will remove old oil, any silicone polishes, waxes, dirt, grease, and grime from the wood.
Once the surface has been cleaned, leave the wood to dry. Then use another medium sanding pad and sand the surface of the wood (we are sanding it dry this time). This will further remove any previous oil coatings on the wood’s surface. If the previous coatings of oil or wax are quite heavy/thick, then you may need to use more sanding pads to fully remove the oil.
As the original coating is removed/reduced, the wood will begin to appear a lighter colour. You should then sand the surface using the fine sanding pad; this will help make the wood feel nice and smooth.
When the surface is reasonably even in colour and touch (it should feel smooth and look lighter), you can move on to step two, or, if you want to stain the wood now is the time. First, wipe the surface down with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
Step 2 – Applying the Beeswax Polish
Ensure the surface is dust free. Apply the Beeswax Polish onto the Lint Free Cloth and rub into the wooden surface following the direction of the grain. Leave for five minutes and buff over with a clean cloth to restore the lustre.
We recommended applying two coats for day to day use of wood, three to bare wood, or more if you desire a high gloss look. For a polished look, polish the beeswax in between coats using the Lint Free Cloth.
With two coats of Beeswax Polish, all wooden surfaces should have a lovely shine and water should bead up on the surface. These signs indicate the wood has been properly treated.
We recommend to re-wax the wood one a year, or whenever the surface starts to look duller, or the water stops beading up.
To re-wax the wood, it is important to sand the surface first using the fine sanding pad and apply the wax in the same way as above. When re-waxing, the wood does not need to be sanded back heavily, however you may choose to do so if you need to remove any scratches or dents.
Whenever the wood starts to look dirty, or the finish smeared, clean it using the Wood Cleaner. Avoid using spray-on polishes as they will create a silicone film on the surface of the wood that, in time, will cause it to streak and smear.
