How to Use woodfood Oil and Wax

First of all, it is okay to use either oil or wax, but we recommend using both oil and wax to achieve an optimum result.

The oil penetrates deeply into the interior of the wood to provide moisture, and it helps to prevent drying or cracks, making it possible helping to use the item for a long time.

Our wax prevents nutrients forms a thin natural coating on the surface to prevent foreign substances from being absorbed from the outside and from liquids seeping into the wood.

woodfood wax melts with frictional heat when applied, and has a nourishing and moisturizing effect like oil, but it is difficult to penetrate deeply like oil. It is for this reason that we recommend using both (oil  followed by wax).

When using only oil, follow steps 1, 2, 3.

When using only wax,  follow steps 1, 4, 5

How to use woodfood oil & wax
Materials Needed

woodfood oils and waxes, applicators, fabrics, solid wood object (wood)

Use a fiber cloth that does not absorb too  much oil and wax.

1. Wipe off foreign substances and  completely dry the wood

2. Apply woodfood oil to the wood with an applicator or by hand

(All woodfood products are manufactured with only natural ingredients and are safe for direct food or skin contact)

3. Wait for the woodfood oil to fully absorb.
If applied thinly, it will be sufficiently absorbed in about 5 minutes.

After that, thinly apply the remaining oil on the surface one more time.

If the oil has been absorbed sufficiently, wipe off the remaining oil at this time.

4. Apply woodfood wax with an applicator or by hand to the wood that has sufficiently absorbed the oil.

Wax helps prevent the nutrients (oils) applied to the wood from easily escaping and it forms a natural layer on the surface of the solid wood to make it waterproof and protect the wood.

5. Apply a thin layer of wax with a fiber cloth that does not absorb oil.

The item can be used immediately after applying oil and wax.

(It can be used immediately after the oil has been absorbed, but please only use it after it has been sufficiently absorbed.)
