Frequently Asked Questions
Below are answers to some of the most common questions about using and buying Osmo oil in the UK.
How Do You Apply Osmo Oil to a Door?
Before you start to apply Osmo wax oil on your door, it has to be clean and completely dry. Start by cleaning microporous stains. You should also remove lacquer and old paints. If there are any cracks, holes or large joints, fill them in with a designated wood filler. For traces of dust on the door, use a vacuum cleaner to remove them completely.
The next step is the careful application of a coat of Osmo door oil to the sides. Then, start to apply the wax finish toward the centre of your door. Apply thinly, using even strokes to ensure a level distribution of the wax finish. You can use a flat brush or a roller for this.
Allow this layer to dry. Then, apply a second layer of Osmo wooden door oil. This time, go for a thinner application layer. Then, allow the door to dry before you install it on the hinges.
