On Countertops or on any surface that will come into contact with water I highly recommend and oil finish first (oil and water do not mix) then followed up with Briwax to maintain as necessary. Look for any “finish” product that has the word “oil” in its name. Watco Oil, Danish Oil, Teak Oil, Tung Oil etc. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for application, allow the finish to cure for several days and then finish with Briwax. This technique will give you a beautiful satin finish that will fairly impervious to water and will look great as you maintain it with Briwax.
Our Briwax Danish oil is used for interior surfaces and our Briwax Teak oil can be used inside or outside. The Teak oil gives a higher sheen than Danish oil.
