Osmo Wash and Care, or Spray-Mop


Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%).
Osmo Oil Stain is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well before use.
Clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (with Osmo Wood Filler).
Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding work for flooring grit P120-150, for furniture girt P220-240. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum.
The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.


Transparent colour: with Osmo Floor Brush, Osmo Microfibre Roller, Oil Finish Applicator Fleece (Hand Pad Holder) or Double Blade Scraper, apply very thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain and rub into the wood with a white pad. For larger areas use the Osmo Floor-X- center / white pad for an even colour tone.  Allow to dry for approx. 12 hours under good ventilation.

Intensive colour: if a stronger colour is desired, apply thinly along the wood grain with Osmo Microfibre Roller or Floor Brush, and spread well. Please note, Oil stain will penetrate quite quickly therefore on thirsty woods a hand application may appear patchy. Trial applications highly recommended first. For best results, rub in to the wood with white pad.

Tip: With an unused Osmo Microfibre Roller, any brushstrokes can be removed within 30 minutes after application. Ventilate well while drying. If an even more intensive colour is desired, apply a second coat with Osmo Double Blade Scraper, Osmo Microfibre Roller or Floor Brush, and rub into the wood with a white pad. Ensure first coat of Osmo Oil Stain has fully dried before rubbing in second coat with white pad.
After thoroughly drying, a top coat should be carried out with a clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil.
For smaller areas, e.g. furniture, Osmo Oil Stain can be applied with a lint-free cloth.


Regular Cleaning: Dust mopping using the green Dust-Mop from the Osmo Mop Cleaning Kit for Floors. Damp mopping using Osmo Wash and Care or Osmo Spray-Mop.

Occasional Maintenance: Intensive cleaning and refreshing using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner or Osmo Maintenance Oil.

Recoating: Simply re-apply one coat onto the clean and dry surface when signs of wear become visible.
