Odie’s Universal Oil (OUO) is a revolutionary true hardwax oil finish that was originally developed for wood but is so versatile it can be used on almost anything! Food safe, solvent free and non toxic, containing no added driers, heavy metals or part 2 catalyst.

Odie’s Universal Oil protects, stabilizes, beautifies, waterproofs and enhances any surface easily, safely and naturally. Provides a lustrous sheen in one coat! OUO is clear curing and non yellowing while containing natural UV inhibitors, helping to protect from the sun's harmful radiation. OUO penetrates, cross links and bonds molecularly, becoming one with any surface it’s applied to and does not sit on top as a shell orfilm like many conventional finishes. It cures fast and hard while also remaining flexible. This means it will never peel, flake, chip, delaminate, wrinkle or leave unsightly white scratch marks or cracks! Odie’s Universal Oil will actually get better with age, becoming more durable and more beautiful!

Odie’s Universal Oil can be applied to everything from wood, metal, leather, rubber and concrete to plastic, vinyl, stone and more! Works for interior and exterior applications. Great for all species of wood, exotic and domestic, solid or veneer. Formulated to work on even the oiliest of woods. Finish flooring, whether it be wood, concrete, terrazzo, bamboo or even cork! Use it on boats and brightwork, decks, siding, fences, gates, fine furniture, patio furniture, tables, countertops, bartops, bowls, charcuterie and cutting boards, spoons, knife and ax handles, toys, auto detail, hot tub covers and even use it on a squeaky hinge! The list goes on and on! Odie's Universal Oil is great for wood turners and can be used as a friction polish!

Approximately 21-25+ Sq. Ft per oz on typical domestic hardwoods (ie:cherry, walnut, maple,

Up to 35-50+ Sq. Ft per oz on dense exotic hardwoods (ie:rosewood, purpleheart, brazilian
walnut, jatoba)

-Stir or mix well as ingredients may settle overtime
-Calculate how much oil you need for your project based on wood species or surface material. Remember a little Odie’s goes a long way, do not over apply! Apply sparingly with a non woven pad (rated equal to or just higher than yourlast sanding grit) and work the oil into the surface using circular motions. The friction from the application process helps to loosen up and drive the oil into the surface.
-Once the finish has been thoroughly worked into the surface, allow to set up for approximately 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the surface applied to (45-60 minutes typically being the idealtime for wood) For surfaces like leather, metal, plastic, stone, epoxy and concrete, you can buff off almost immediately after application. Do not allow the product to set for more than 8- 10 hours,this may resultin a reapplication with Odie’s Universal Oilto reactivate the finish for a proper buff/wipe off.
-Now it’s time to Buff Off and remove any and all excess/residual oil from the surface until dry to touch. Take a clean terry cotton towel and scrub the surface clean, making sure to regularly flip to a clean section of towel as it gets loaded up with oil. Switch to a clean towel if/when\ needed. If you can swipe a clean finger across the surface without leaving a mark, you are done!
-Most surfaces can be handled almostimmediately and lightly used within 24-48 hrs. Please allow 3-5 days cure time before being subjected to standing liquids.
-Additional coats of your favorite Odysseus Cornwall’s finish, Odie’s Universal Oil, Odie’s Wood Butter or Mr. Cornwall’s Super Duper Everlasting Oil can be applied using the same easy steps as above. We recommend waiting a day between coats with the exception of Odie’s Waxes, if top coating with Odie’s waxes, ideally, we recommend 3-5 days cure time.
-For non porous surfaces like epoxy resin, metal, stone and polished concrete much less oil is needed in the application process, please see coverage metrics.

The typical Odie’s Universal Oil finished floor will easily perform for 10-15+ years with regular cleaning and care before ever needing any maintenance. The only way to wear the finish away is to wearthe surface away itself. If and when the time comes for some maintenance, whether it’s your floor, a countertop, tabletop or cutting board etc, simply clean the surface (check outto clean your Odie’s treated surfaces here) and apply another light coat of your desired choice of Odysseus Cornwall’s finish as per their instructions. For exterior projects, maintenance will depend on the direct exposure to the elements and the products originally used to finish the project. In extreme conditions, maintenance could be once a year to once every several years or longer in normal conditions.

    I am interested in your stains however, I would like to have some samples so I can decide which one I want to order. Do not want to order stain. That is the wrong tone and color..

    What an amazing product! I used it on an old wallet that my grandmother gave me 30+ years ago. The leather has become so soft! I have also used it on other items around the house but interestingly not on wood yet! What an incredible product!!!!

    Easy to apply and provides a durable finish. Comparable to several hard wax bonding finishes. My only issue is with customer service, this was a disappointment.

    I love this stuff! I am an amateur refinisher going through my home and reviving old pieces of furniture that have been in my family for generations and other stuff I have acquired over the years. It's lovely stuff and I am learning so much as I do each piece. The videos are great and very informative.
