Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints offers an extremely hard-wearing, oil-based wood stain finish that dries to a soft satin sheen. Perfect for most interior wooden surfaces, including floors, doors, skirting boards, furniture and more. Child and food safe when dry, this product is ideal for wooden chopping boards, utensils and children's toys.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil and pigments inside are thoroughly mixed.
Ensure that wooden surfaces, especially floors, have been sanded and prepared with care. Poor preparation and / or sanding technique may result in a poor finish. Surfaces must be clean and dry, removing all traces of dust and dirt before application (maximum moisture content 20%). Only apply on frost-free surface. For guaranteed performance it is always recommended to remove all traces of a previous finish.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to assess compatibility and suitability. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints is ready-to-use from the tin, do not thin. Stir thoroughly prior and periodically during application. Fiddes Hard Wax Oils dry via oxidation so it is important to ensure good ventilation during application and drying.
The ideal application tool is a firm, fine, natural bristle brush, however the key to a great finish is thin application with removal of any surplus with a clean, lint free cloth.
Cork tiles are best treated before fitting to avoid overlapping treatment of edges which would lead to prolonged drying times. A cork floor treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints will get a robust, elastic and wear-resistant surface which will harden further over several weeks. Due to the extreme absorption power of this highly elastic, natural, material we recommend the following procedure:
Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints can be intermixed to produce unique colours. For a more translucent finish add clear Hard Wax Oil. Here are some tips for achieving different effects:
For day to day cleaning, surfaces treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints 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.

We have hardwood floors throughout the house but they are old in the high traffic areas quite worn. A couple of coats of this oil has evened up the look of the floor and added a nice subtle sheen. In an ideal world we’d sandcit back and apply the product but even without this prep it’s made a big difference.
Easy to use and results as promised
Good product does what it says on the tin easy to apply
Good product works well lovely sheen to it
Superb depth of colour that enhances the grain of my oak doors. Two coats give such intensity and a very even finish.
Great product which is easy to use, finish is exactly as expected.
I am sure Fiddes Hard Wax Oil is good quality. I did read reviews before I decided to buy it. The Whiskey stain was just the colour we wanted - that was until we put oiled our brand new oak flooring. It was nothing like the colour described. It is far far too dark. We will put up with it for the time being but I intend to have it sanded off as soon as convenient.
Hello Mr Carrier,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this product. I am sorry to hear that you did not get the desired finish and this is one of the reasons that we recommend test areas with all finishes. The wood that you are applying to will impact on the colour that can be achieved.
If you need any advice moving forward with your project please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Kind regards Samantha.
Good product, easy to use, perfect finish, excellent result.
Quick delivery, does what it says on the tin
Have used this before to blend a new oak block work top with an old limed oak kitchen Liked it so much we have ordered more to use on some oak bookcases to give a nice drift-wood effect. 2 coats are quite enough - a third starts to get too white and opaque.
Nice overall finish - good lustre but there is a marked difference between the key offered by the fiddes website to that achieved by the product. I did warn my client that it might be the case but they were not inclined to believe me.
Not have used it but looks good
Easy to apply and gave a great finish
Lightened the train really nicely without being too opaque, exactly what we wanted
Started off with a battered orangey old floor, but after a bit of elbow grease removing remains of old wax, I used this wax oil and am absolutely delighted! Looks superb. Easy to use dries quickly, couldn't be happier.
Good adherence, versatile application and consistent quality
We're renovating our 130 year old stone house. I am sanding each room as we go with my trusty random orbital sander - I don't want a factory perfect finish, I want to see a bit of history on those boards. The wood is pine; using Fiddes natural coloured hard wax oil on them set the latent orange tones on fire. It was a shock. So now I'm using the Onyx black - the result is an ashy dark brown with a few gold highlights. It looks brilliant. Fiddes Hardwax Oil is so easy to apply - I brush on to work it into the grain and the floorboard gaps then wipe it off. And it goes such a long way so is really economical. It will always be my floor finish of choice.
We've used lots of different oils from the Fiddes range and they are all great
Great coverage with one coat and colours as it says on the tin!
Very hard wearing, high quality product. I used this to restore Douglas Fir floor boards, in a property that dates from 1745. Delighted with the results and would definitely recommend.
