How to use Osmo Door Oil

  1. The wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%).
  2. Osmo Door Oil is ready to use. Do not thin.
  3. Shake well before use.
  4. Clean old micro-porous stains thoroughly.
  5. Old paints, varnishes and lacquers must be completely removed.
  6. Always wear a dust mask while sanding. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes with a wood Filler.
  7. Sand wood surfaces carefully.
  8. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding P120-150 for solid wood doors.
  9. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum.
  10. If possible, please apply the first coat to all sides before installation.
  11. Apply with Osmo Flat Brush and apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain and spread well.
  12. Allow for good ventilation while drying.
  13. After drying, apply a second coat – also thinly.
  14. Clean tools using Osmo Brush Cleaner (free of aromatic compounds).

Cleaning and Maintenance

Once your surfaces have been treated with Osmo door Oil, it is recommended to use the surface as little as possible for around 1 week to fully cure. It is not recommended to regular household cleaners as they are not designed to clean oiled wooden surfaces and can damage them over time. For regular daily cleaning, it is recommended to use Osmo Spray Cleaner as this will clean your wooden doors without removing any oils and waxes, so will not dry the wood out. This will also remove many minor marks. It is also recommended to dust on a regular basis using a plain lint free cloth. If you accidentally scratch or damage the finish, you can either lightly sand the affected area and re-apply the same door oil shade that you originally used. For lighter marks or scuffs, this can usually be cleaned by using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner.

Please note

  • The drying time is approximately 24 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C/50 % rel. humidity).
  • Ventilate well while drying.
  • Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity may increase drying times.
  • The coverage for 1 coat is 24 m²/1 l. It depends significantly on the character of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/cut surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to deviations in coverage.
  • Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying time.
  • Oils enhance the natural tone of wood
  • Osmo Door Oil 3060 offers a permanent wet-look-effect
  • 3033 Raw counteracts exactly this effect and protects wood almost invisibly. The original look of the wood can be kept – no emphasising of the natural colour of the wood (no wet-look-effect).
  • On dark/reddish wood species the Door Oil 3033 Raw can be seen as a faintly white surface.
  • A trial application is recommended.
  • Storage: 5 years and longer if stored in the closed original can. If thickened by frost, store at room temperature for 24 hours prior to use
  • Dispose of leftover product and completely emptied packaging according to local official guidelines (waste code number 08 01 12). Only completely emptied cans can be recycled.

Questions and Answers 

What will remove Osmo door oil runs?

The door oil is designed to soak into the wood but if you leave a lot of excess oil on application, this can dry with runs. It is always best to wipe away any excess oil using a lint free cloth during application. To remove the runs that have dried onto the wood, it can sometimes be difficult without sanding back to the bare wood but there are a couple of things you can try. First try to lightly sand the area with fine sanding paper back to a smooth finish. Then re-coat with the door oil again in the affected area. You can also try to remove runs using Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thiner. Wipe over the wood surface to remove as much as the run as possible. Once dry, you will have to lightly sand the wood and then re-oil.

Can you use Osmo door oil 3060 on oak veneer doors?

Yes, Osmo Door Oil 3060 has been specially designed for use on Oak veneered doors. This oil has very low solvents in the ingredients so it will not affect the glue under the veneer unlike many other wood oils. This low solvent door oil reduces the risk of damaging the veneer upon application.

How many doors would a 1 Litre tin of Osmo door oil do?

A 1 litre tin will cover approximately 24 m square with one coat. It is recommended to allow 2 m square per side on a door and two coats per side of oil. So in total you will need to use approximately 8 m square per door. This means a 1 litre tine will complete approximately 3 doors in total with two coats of oil on both sides. This is a very approximate guide as the second coat is usually a lot thinner application so quite often a 1 litre tin will actually complete 4 doors but it depends on how dry your wood is to how well the oil soaks into the wood. 

How many coats of Osmo oil are needed for doors?

It is always best to apply two coats of door oil. Apply the first using a flat brush as this will add a good coat of oil to protect the timber. Apply the second coat very thinly using an easy pad or lint free cloth as this will finish with a nice smooth coat. It is best to always apply the oil in the direction of the grain. 

Where can i buy Osmo door oil?  

Here at Priory Polishes we have a large selection of Osmo oils for sale including door oil available on our website We also stock this in our shop in Clitheroe, Lancashrie along with many other wood finishing oils and waxes. We are one of the few retailers who have an Osmo mixing machine, so we can tint any shade onsite and can offer fast, fully tracked postage around the UK on a daily basis.

Can this oil be used on previously waxed wooden doors to refresh surface?

If your doors have had a wax finish applied in the past, then you can not apply the door oil on top as it will not penetrate into the wood correctly. This can lead to a patchy finish and can react with the wax finish. To use the door oil, you would have to remove any previous finish back to the bare wood before applying. If you just want to refresh an existing wax finish, then we do offer a large selection of wood wax and we find the Fiddes supreme wax is a very good product to do this.

Is it best to oil doors before or after they have been hung ?

If possible it would be best to oil your doors before they have been hung. This is because you can apply the door oil laid down flat and this will ensure a more even finish with no drips. You can still treat the doors whilst hung, you just need to ensure you wipe away any excess oil after application with a clean lint free cloth. Always apply thinly and evenly to achieve the best finish.
