Q. Is the hard wax oil durable enough for a tabletop?
A. Absolutely, this product is perfect for any wooden items requiring good protection. Another big advantage of this product is that repairs are extremely easy to do should the need arise
Q. Is hard wax oil any different from linseed oil or Danish oil?
A. Its better because the wax content keeps the oil suspended in the surface of the wood for longer. This mean that it is a more durable oil, and that maintenance is required less frequently.
Q. Can I use a steam cleaner to clean my oiled furniture?
A. In short, "No". Oiled and waxed finishes on furniture are 'Micro-porous' which means that although the wood is protected, it can still breathe as it is not completely sealed as it would be with a varnish. Cleaning oiled or waxed pine furniture with a steam cleaner introduces high temperature and pressure water which can strip and penetrate the oiled or waxed finish and potentially damage the wooden furniture
