Hard Wax Oil - pure solid, no-VOC
A natural, durable finish for wood, cork, and stone interior surfaces. Unearthed Hard Wax Oil is "pure solids," which means it contains absolutely no solvents or water. This premium wood finish is made with only natural oils, waxes, and resins. Made by melting Carnauba Wax and colophonium resin into a mixture of linseed oil and tung oil. Linseed oil ensures a deep penetration of even the smallest wood pores thanks to a small molecule size and a long processing time.
Our Hard Wax Oil is a great natural alternative to finishing your wood floors or furniture with polyurethane. Hard Wax Oil produces a satin finish that is durable, low in odor and can be easily spot repaired. For each 2.5 liter can we sell, we protect 420 square feet of rain forest.

Coverage will vary based on the absorbency of the wood (for example, porous woods such as pine will require significantly more Hard Wax Oil than a hard cherry wood). Cork requires even more. Average coverage amount is 420 square feet per 2.5 liters.
How to Use:
Apply with a brush or roller. Also suitable for floor machines with soft pads. After a drying time of approximately 20-30 minutes, polish with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Prior to application, stir gently as some natural separation may occur.
IMPORTANT: Thoroughly remove all excess oil when polishing the surface, as excessive oil may lead to glossy, sticky spots. Unearthed Hard Wax Oil should permeate completely into the wood and must not form a layer on the wood

With proper care, Hard Wax Oil will last beautifully for many years.
After applying Hard Wax Oil to your floors, avoid walking on it for about 24 hours. This waiting time will allow the finish to properly dry. Additionally, you should avoid using water to clean the floor for the first month after application (sweeping and vacuuming are fine).
For routine cleaning, sweep or use a vacuum with a wood floor attachment. Use luke warm water to clean (never hot water), and use only soft (cotton) wipes. For regular maintenance and cleaning use luke warm water with Unearthed Carnauba Wax Emulsion. To remove dirt that will not come off with water and Carnauba Wax Emulsion, use gentle, natural soaps such as Unearthed Marseille Soap. Do not use microfiber cloths or pads, which will wear away the oil. Wipe away any liquid spills as soon as possible- do not allow them to dry on the surface.
SAFETY WARNING! Cloths containing Hard Wax Oil can self-ignite. Allow drenched cloths to dry in a fire-safe location such as a closed, fire-proof container (glass or tin can). Ensure that Hard Wax Oil does not come into contact with porous or absorbent insulation materials, and never pour Hard Wax Oil onto a floor because there is a risk that it could seep into insulation material and self ignite.
