Bald's Original Wood Balm



How do I get rid of ring marks and watermarks?

We cannot guarantee it will remove all marks as every mark is different and every finish is different. Put the balm on a soft cotton cloth, like a cotton vest etc., and wipe the cloth in the direction of the grain not the mark, if it doesn’t remove it the first time go back a week later and try again, repeat this and after 2/3 months if the mark is still there the only other recourse is to strip and re-polish or re-wax the item, but then you will still need the balm to feed and nourish the wood.

Can you wax or french polish on top of the balm?

Yes, you can wax and put french polish on top of the balm. By applying the balm on top of already waxed wood you have the added benefit that you won’t have to wax as often as the wax will go hard again when you apply the balm. If you have wood “in the white” (with nothing on it) you can apply the balm, let it soak in and put either french polish or wax on top.

Will it work on wooden floors?

yes, again apply in the direction of the grain and let it soak in, if there is any residue then simply wipe away with another soft cloth.

Can the balm be used on garden furniture?

Yes, we didn’t think the balm would be used on garden furniture but we are finding more and more people are using it as it gives outdoor furniture the oils it needs and when it rains you will find water globules collecting rather than soaking into the wood.

Wlhat is the difference between the Red top and Green Top?

The Red top is for dark woods i.e. Oak, Mahogany, Cherry, etc. and the Green top is for light woods i.e. Pine, Yew, Teak, etc. If you are worried which one to buy try the Green top first as you can use this on both light and dark woods and then you will know when you need the Red top.

How long will it last?

Unfortunetly for us along time !! If you apply the balm onto a cotton cloth and keep this in a plastic bag when you are not using it, the cloth will keep the oils on it and you can use it again and again to clean and dust your wood and wooden furniture.

What furniture can you use the balm on?

Any furniture and wood in the home, wooden floors, kitchen units, bathroom cabinets, oak beams, wooden doors, wooden stairs and railings, tables, chairs, the list is endless. The only time you notice an oily residue is when you put it onto a french polished surface to clean and restore scratches and it hasn’t soaked in, this is because it is an oil, all you have to do is get another cloth and wipe the residue away.

How do I apply the balm?

The best way is to apply the balm onto a soft cotton cloth and wipe the cloth onto wood in the direction of the grain.

How often do I apply the balm?

Use your cloth with the balm on it as your weekly cleaner, “duster”

Who makes it and where is it made?
