MMS Milk Paint Hemp Oil on Washboard

We celebrated DH's birthday on Saturday. A dear friend brought over a beautiful bouquet. 

After DH tightened up the loose sides of this well used washboard I cleaned it and then brushed (Ibought it from MMS Milk Paint) hemp oil over the wood. It brought out the lettering as well as darkened the wood on the faded washboard. No oily residue.

I use a short handled brush for applying hemp oil. I pour a bit on one side of the bristles and then work it quickly over the wood (which changes tone as the brush moves on). I use the least amount of hemp oil and do not saturate any area, until the wooden surfaces are covered. I use a soft cloth to wipe and polish the wood after it dries.

This is the before (back) and the after (front). 

I use hemp oil on on metal, wood, leather and painted furniture. Old wood is often very dry and 'thirsty' and the hemp oil brings back some of the richness and original color.

 I cleaned up an old metal and wood coffee grinder yesterday (didn't take a before/after at home) with hemp oil (brushed on, wiped off).

Thanks for visiting.
