Care & Use

Surface Preparation:

Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application. Gilly’s
Citrus Thin (d-limonene, natural citrus solvent) or a turpentine
can be used for a vigorous clean. For a lighter clean, you can use
an all purpose cleaner.
If there is any oil, wax, grease, dirt or similar residue on the
surface, it may affect the tung oils ability to cure - so a thorough
clean is important.

How to Apply
To Raw Timber:

1. Blend with Gilly’s Citrus Thin at a ratio of 50/50.
2. Rub or brush oil into the timber. Lighter coats are better.
3. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Wipe on more oil to areas that
become dull, as the oil soaks in.
4. Wipe off the excess oil, then lightly sand back whilst still
damp. Use 320 grit or finer.
5. Apply 3 coats, repeating the same procedure. Best to wait

Dry Time:
24 hours between coats. Apply more coats if desired or
necessary.
6. Hang out any rags or soak in water.
Dry Time

Brand story

All Gilly's products stocked at Biome contain no petrochemicals.  They are made from plant oils, a natural solvent made from crushed orange peels, and some have beeswax.

Do I need an oil or a wax?

Oiling is the easy go-to, particularly if you don't require any sort of sheen or mechanical protection. Oiling moisturises the timber to stop cracking and warping. It is brilliant for wooden and bamboo chopping boards and grazing platters, or rougher timber as waxes tend to get caught in rogue fibres.   

Use Liquid Beeswax (a rich blend of plant based oils, citrus solvent and beeswax with a subtle citrus aroma), or the vegan Chopping board oil

Waxing is a more involved process, that gives an extra layer of protection to seal in the nourishing oils. First you oil to hydrate, allowing the wood to dry thoroughly, and then apply fine layers of the Food Safe Wax buffing and drying in between.

Use the two step process of oiling then waxing, to nourish and protect wooden and bamboo cleaning brushes and children's toys.
