We were using O'Cedar furniture polish on our bed head and the container leaked. How can I get the stain out of my sheet.
Have a tin marked O'Cedar Mop Polish
Which has different languages on it and was wondering when it was produced.
My late husband unearthed the tin around 30 years ago,and it had buttons in it.
Would love to know more about it?
I love this polish and I have recently used it on my bookcase and unfortunately it has changed the colour of the wood. The wood is a lot darker than it was previously. What is the best way to remove the polish from my bookcase?
Found an vintage bottle of o Cedar furniture touch up polish, says copyright 1942 on bottle. Any idea how old this is and if the contents (1/3rd of bottle) is still usable.
My husband decided to bn use ocedar polish to lubricate the fan on our wood heater and as it is heating up the room looks all misty and smells. Will the fumes from the polish be toxic to us?
Can you use this on food grade chopping boards?
No, ocedar is furniture polish only to make furniture look shiny and new. For food grade chopping boards I use vegetable cooking oil.
will a few drops of o cedar in a bucket of water ''revive'' a dry looking patio tiled with ''porous tiles''. i would like to revive the ''pebbly look'' of these tiles especially the dark brown ''pebbles''. these tiles are very porous...like a dry skin on the hands. they look like they need ''moisturiser'. thank you for your help' .

Firstly I love this product on my Jarrah boards but have also tried it on my patio beige colour tiles and I found it does make them look clean and smooth but use sparingly as
to prevent them them from being slippery wipe over with dry cloth
oh thank you. i will not use it neat.....just a teaspoon or two in a bucket of water. the tiles are porous so they will absorb the o'cedar oil and only a slight shine is left. so they wont get slippery. but doing this regularly will 'revive' their colours. i have tried it neat on a sample tile and even then, it was thoroughly absorbed. thanks again mal for replying to my query :-)) marinat
I have a ceda wood chest and it has years worth of ceda oil on it and it has collected a lot of dust over the years I would like to know how get the oil of and start again? thank you
Good question. Oil is oil so paint thinner would work but watered down household vinegar would be cheaper and slightly less gross smelling. Probably the best bet would be just mild soapy water (any detergent: dishwashing liquid, laundry powder, hand soap etc.) would clean oil off. I'd try a very sudsy soft bristled brush to get it clean and start again. Anything which you'd use to clean away any other oil or fat and dirt will work but don't drown the timber in any liquid, just a sudsy dish brush you were about to throw out will do the trick I'm sure.
I have used the ocedar oil on a piece of furniture by mistake and want to paint it instead , what do I use to clean the oil off so I can paint it?
Hello. I have accidently covered my wooden floor boards in this product and they have become very slippery. I am hoping someone can tell me what product I can use to remove it? Thanks.
Try wiping with undiluted bathroom tile cleaner (don't forget the gloves).then just clean with hot water
How do you apply cedar furniture polish and how long does it take to dry?
I use the trigger bottle not aerosol and give a fine mist and rub with a soft cloth till shine then after a cuppa rerub with another cloth to lift excess oil.then each other day give a quick wipe with first cloth to keep the shine
Apply with a soft cloth such as cotton undies, after you have discarded them of course. This product is really designed for timber that has not been varnished, but natural timber and the O Cedar soaks into the timber and leaves a delightful fragrance and a superior finish. It dries quickly on natural timber.
is this product silicon free?
I have mistakenly used oil based furniture varnish/lacquer on my freshly sanded floorboards. I've only used one coat. The person gave me the wrong stuff. My question is, is it a big issue? What can happen and for my second coat can I buy proper floor varnish to do them?
Hi Sherie, You do not state what brand of varnish you have coated your freshly sanded floor with, therefore you should be consulting that manufacturer before re-coating. O Cedar will not work with oil or water based coatings! It was designed for bare timber that had been sanded and polished. 10 years ago I had three bedroom floors that are concrete, covered with Tasmanian Oak. After the workers had laid the timber floor, they sanded it, thickly coated it with a hard polyurethane varnish, re-sanded a day later and did a second coat of poly which they poured on and then rolled out giving a very thick hard coating. It stank for many days but finished up looking great. Since then the termites have eaten it and I am now in the process of removing 12mm thick flooring that has been glued and nailed into the concrete. Back to carpet for me. I really think you should consult with and get several opinions from paint specialists before continuing. Sorry I can not be of more help.
Regards and best wishes,
