Stir the hard wax oil thoroughly before using it. Apply the oil using either the applicator or paint brush. Use long even strokes that go with the grain. Apply a thin, even coat and leave it for 12 hours to dry.
Lightly sand the surface with 240-grit sandpaper and wipe away any dust. Then apply a second coat of wax.
Over the next 24 hours, you should take care when using the benchtop. Don't clean it with water or any other liquid for at least 10 days. You need to wait until the wax reaches its maximum hardness.
