Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Natural is designed to better retain the natural appearance of untreated wood whilst offering a high degree of protection. Suitable for use on most interior wooden surfaces, including wooden floors, doors, kitchen worktops, cupboards, skirting boards, spindles and furniture.
Please Note: Fiddes also market and label this product as "Oak Lightening".
This product is better suited to lighter coloured timbers such as Pine, Oak, Beech etc. If used on dark exotic hardwoods such as Teak, Mahogany, Iroko or Ipe it could leave a milky, slightly white appearance to the timber.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil, wax and resins inside are thoroughly mixed.
Ensure surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dust, dirt or any other surface contaminants prior to application os Hard Wax Oil Natural.
The video below demonstrates the application of the standard clear Hard Wax Oil. Although the application process will be the same for the 'Natural' version, the end result shown in this video shows the darker, slightly damp appearance of the standard clear oil.
Always do a test area before starting any project to check compatibility and suitability. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Stir thoroughly before and periodically during use. For the best results only apply at room temperatures.
Please Note: Over application will result in a 'white wash' finish and in the worst cases white swirls, brush marks and a sticky or tacky surface.
For day to day cleaning, surfaces treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Natural can be dry wiped, swept or vacuumed.
To clean surface scuffs, marks and stains, use Fiddes Floor Surface Cleaner and a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth or mop.
Please Note: Although Fiddes Cleaner is named 'Floor Surface Cleaner' it can be used on any surface treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, including floors, furniture, table tops and kitchen worktops.
Alternatively, Fiddes Wood Surface Cleaner Spray can be used on these other surfaces.
Oiled or waxed floors and surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as this can damage the finish.
Scuffs, stains, marks and minor scratches can be quickly and easily repaired.

Very easy to apply and bought out the true beauty of oak
Can't give it 5 stars as haven't used the product yet but I'm confident that it will meet my expectations. based on a previously tested product
Have just used this on some oak worktop and wanted a less orangey colour. Having researched different oils i was directed towards this one and I am very happy with the results. Its also great that it is quick drying too
Does what it says and does not darken the furniture
Gives a lovely colour to the oak, from the samples I tried, thought this was by far the best and covers a large area
This product was so easy to apply and the results were just what we needed for our dining room floor.
Great product with a good firm behind it.
Great product good coverage and a little goes a long way
I bought this to protect a reclaimed oak parquet floor and the finish i exactly what i wanted. Brought the grain out lovely and give it a warm tinge. Also coated oak door frames, skirting boards and doors as i was so happy with the finish. At least 2 coats recommended and apply thinly.
Very easy to apply and gives a natural finish. Instructions were followed and there was no 'milkiness' at all. I will be using this product again and will be recommending to family and friends.
This is an excellent product. Used it to finish new oak handrail. It gives a very natural looking finish without changing the colour of the wood and seems hard wearing. I would certainly use it again.
Tested this 5ml sample on a small piece of bare oak bannister rail. It gave a lovely finish. Just what I was looking for. I intend to use it to finish new banister rail.
Love this stuff. So easy to apply and looks great when finished.
I find all the Fiddes & Sons products the best on the market.
Goes on very easily and goes further than tin says, lots left. Does slightly darken wood but looks ok.
The satchet allowed me to choose the correct oil for the shade of wood to be covered
I recently built an oak framed sun room extension using 7 x 7 green oak posts, 7 x 6 plates and 10 x 4 cill, which was direct glazed with kiln dried oak facing. I needed a finish for the internal oak that would keep the natural appearance, have little to no sheen and also to bring out the grain. Fiddes hard wax oil was recommended to me by the sawmill and I have no regrets in using it. The coverage is excellent and I only used one small 250 ml for one coat. That was several weeks ago and I now intend to make a second purchase for the final coat.
I like this product a lot. Works well and has a lovely finish.
Reasonably prices product and leaves a natural finish. Very pleased with this product.
Was applied to freshly sanded pine floor boards, brought out the wood grain while not overly colouring the wood. The grain and knots assumed a brown woody tint giving way to a clear surrounding wood. Initial, stirring did not mix effectively and led to unsatisfactory coloration. We used our mechanical paint mixer (drill attachment) and the result was much improved. The natural tint has a white ingredient which counters the coloration of the oil/wax, this tends to sit at the bottom of the tin, so very good mixing is needed. Also, as instructed, a wipe down is compulsory during application for a good finish.
