  • Bee Kind -  Wooden Floor & Timber Wax Finish with Beeswax & Carnauba Wax
    A natural non-toxic, Eco-friendly and solvent free timber finish for wooden floors and timber surfaces. A breathable wooden floor finish made with quality oils,
    Carnauba wax and Beeswax which naturally protects wood and guards against dryness. Nourishes wood and gives an authentic finish to furniture. Primes and
    top coats in one while enhancing the timber grain and patina with an absorbent durable and water-repelling finish.

    Uses: As a natural finish for interior timber floors. Also suited to walls, ceilings, doors, moldings and timber panels, hardwood floors, softwood floors, timber
    walls, stone, concrete, bamboo flooring, vinyl flooring, oak flooring, native wood flooring and cork flooring. Not for use on top of laminate flooring. Not suitable
    for wet areas. Caustic substances, such as soaps, vinegar, citric acids, alkaline, and bleaches may mark waxed surfaces.

    Coverage: Around 15m2 per 500grams for most wooden floors and timbers depending on the absorbency and substrate of the wood.

    Preparation: Remove old sealants dirt and dust. Always test the product on a spare surface or area for colour, compatibility and end result. The surface must
    be well sanded and clean. If glue is used in a laid timber floor, ensure it is fully hardened before applying wax.

    Application: Apply a coat of Bee Kind Wooden Floor Wax sparingly by rubbing in wooden flooring with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Allow to dry for a
    minimum of 2 hours. Repeat on new or very dry wood as it may require two or more coats. For a higher sheen build-up with thin coats of wax, buffing between
    coats. Optional to buff or not, depending on finish required. Drying time Min 2 hours. The drying time of oil-based and beeswax products is prolonged by high
    humidity and/or low temperatures during application. Do not use over laminate flooring. Use a brush/cloth/sponge.
    Note: If you want a richer colour you
    may need to purchase and apply a stain first.

    Cleaning and Maintenance: Wipe over with a cloth or duster and re-wax as required when the surface looks dull and tired. Do not wash with water. Comes
    in 500gram sealed tin. Seal well after use and store in a cool and dry place. Shelf life is 3 years.

  • Bee Kind - Outdoor Furniture Wax
    Using pure certified essential oils of Orange - NO artificial fragrances.

    Highly recommended to use immediately on newly purchased outdoor wooden furniture to prevent dullness and oxidation occurring over the season, which
    turns tables silver. Direct sunlight and varying weather conditions can be detrimental to beautiful outdoor wooden furniture. Prevents wood from cracking,
    drying and oxidizing due to exposure to the sun, temperature variations or moisture. Note: Most imported tables already come with a pigmented wood stain.
    So once the table has turned the silvery colour, you would require a brown wood stain or other to bring it back to its original dyed colour.

    Bee Kind Beeswax Polishes for Indoor & Outdoor Furniture are simple and solvent free, made with pure NZ Beeswax, high-grade Carnauba wax, and certified
    essential plant oils. Bee Kind beeswax furniture polish has the consistency of a lotion and is very easy to use, there is no hard buffing, just apply along the grain
    and wipe! A long-lasting solution with a lingering natural scent of Beeswax.

    There are no neurotoxic petroleum by-products, no solvents, turps and no artificial fragrances in our homemade special recipes. Every ingredient is renewable,
    100% biodegradable, non-flammable and earth-friendly. Create a healthier home and use a product that is safe for your family, your health, and the environment.

  • Bee Kind -Waterproofing Beeswax Bar
    NOTE: Please do not use these bars if you are allergic to bees. The heating process may attract a few bees, as bees can detect the smell of beeswax from miles
    away.

    Please apply the wax correctly to the fabric when heating/curing- more info below. We have found an iron on a low setting to be the best application, but please
    use with caution. Can also be used in 'hot' direct sun to melt and cure. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble with your waterproofing bar or any
    questions.

    This product is NOT a flammable liquid, so is safe to use and to get on hands. Plus an excellent choice for those that suffer from severe asthma or skin
    disorders. There are no toxic fumes/chemical particles that can be inhaled or ingested.

    We devised the idea of a bar as if you attempted to melt down pure natural waxes, by the time it hit your paint brush it would have hardened, before even
    getting to the cover. We do not condone melting and then thinning with turpentine as turpentine is a highly flammable liquid with acute oral toxicity
    (as specified in its data sheet), it is also highly combustible- PLEASE do not use turpentine on your animal covers. If you wish to thin our bars down, please use
    an oil.

    Our beeswax heavy duty water repellent and protecting wax is made from the highest quality Beeswax and blend of waxes. A great option for heavy duty
    waterproofing projects like outdoor equipment, float and tent awnings, tent seams, jackets or pants, bike wear, back packs, hats, synthetic and canvas horse
    covers, horse saddle blankets, trekking boots, jeans, canvas shoes, fishing & hunting gear, rucksacks, tents and hiking boots. Any surface that requires a heavy
    duty waterproofing surface. Easy to use. Can be used in hard to reach seams and stitching. For horse covers, does both synthetic and canvas. Wax needs to be
    heated and cured into fabric for high-quality results.

    You can also just use one bar and waterproof the top seams and all the stitching (to protect
    stitching) where the water really hits in a heavy rain downpour if you want more breath-ability in heavier horse covers.
    We recommend allowing up to 2 bars per 15ft cover, but one may be sufficient.

    Application
    1. First, ensure that the product you are applying this to is clean and dry. Use a cloth to hold the bar and rub back and forth over the surface, which creates the
    friction needed to loosen the wax.
    2. Ensure the wax has been SPREAD EVENLY over the surface.
    3. HEAT the wax into the fabric using either:
    • A heat gun
    • A hair dryer on a HIGH heat setting (for smaller garments).
    • An iron set to a LOW SYNTHETIC setting.
    4. If applying to a large surface area such as a horse cover, for the best results apply a second coating of the wax bar straight after you have heated thoroughly
    the first application.
    5. If the look of the wax is white and it is sticky to touch it has not been cured into the fabric. So it won’t be waterproof. So re-apply heat using the above
    methods.
    6. Leave overnight to dry and cure.

    You can view our videos on applying the wax by searching for Bee Kind NZ in Youtube.

    NOTE: To wash the wax out of your fabric, set the wash temperature to 60 degrees heat and wash twice.
    For larger clothes or in-between covers, you could place garments into tied up large black plastic rubbish bags. Then place into the dryer for 10min increments.

    It’s recommended that you re-apply wax every year or second year. Waxing fabric, will darken the color of a fabric and give it a light shine. As a general rule of
    thumb, plan on using more wax to treat un-waxed or oiled fabrics. Waxed fabrics are already saturated with wax, so will not absorb as much as an untreated
    fabric. Our Bee Kind wax bars are excellent for one-sided waxing because it creates a seal on the top layer of the fabric. Great for quickly re-proofing factory
    waxed and oiled garments like oilskins. Our wax is melted down when applied, thus permeating deeper into the fabric and yielding a more factory-waxed
    appearance. This is ideal for multi-layered coats and jackets, or for re-proofing factory-oiled fabrics.

    Note for Horse Covers: Not ideal for thin cotton white cover sheets - It will attract soil on the sheet when the horse rolls, due to the
    nature of the beeswax in the wax bar as it's a waxy type substance, unless wax is melted in correctly and completely dried before use.

    No chemical odour - 100% gold label pure essential oil of certified lemon (citrus limonum) is added for a naturally fresh citrus fragrance.

    To use: Allow your final coat of paint to dry overnight, this is important as the paint needs to dry and also wipe off any excess paint if applying as a chalk paint
    wax. Always apply the Bee Soft Wax in thin layers. The wax needs to be spread and massaged into the dry underlying paint using a lint free cloth or brush so
    that it absorbs into the paint. You should always remove any excess wax. It is important to work in small sections at a time and to change to a clean lint free rag
    if not using a brush. Distress any areas that you require before waxing. Apply a light coat of Bee Soft Wax over painted area with a soft brush or a lint-free cloth.
    Wipe with the grain of the wood. Let the wax completely dry overnight then buff for added shine.

    A Bee Kind Shabby Chic Creative Tip - For easy application, you can use a pre-loved sock, wear it like a glove to apply the clear wax - great for getting into
    the nooks and crannies of difficult furniture. If you're up cycling your furniture, you might as well up cycle your pre-loved clothes too!
