Danish oil is a drying oil, meaning when used as a topcoat, it penetrates the wood fibers, repelling moisture and hardening it. Most oil finish jobs require periodic replenishment of the same oil to renew the protective properties of the finish while brightening it, leaving behind a clean, fresh look. With this use, danish oil becomes part of a regular cleaning and maintenance routine.

1. Remove any stains or residue from the wood with a washcloth and oil-based wood soap. Let them dry before starting work.

2. Wipe the wood with a cloth, removing dust and other dry residues.

3. Apply a layer of Danish oil to the wood with long, smooth strokes of the brush. Leave the oil overnight to soak in and dry, and inspect the wooden object. If you want an even cleaner and fresher look, apply a second coat.
