This polish requires plenty of elbow grease but can produce a deep, long lasting shine on all types of wood types with a high gloss finish (except French Polish). If starting with unpolished wood a few coats of wood sealant should be applied first and then a reasonable amount of polish and given a good, hard polish. After that, applying polish occasionally will be enough. When the wood is already polished only a small amount of wax polish should be used.
Cheshire beeswax, gum turpentine.
How to use:
Make sure the wood is clean before applying. Rub it on well with a soft cloth, leave for about 15 minutes to allow the turpentine to evaporate and for the mixture to penetrate the wood. Polish off well leaving a protective and long lasting shine. Feeds the wood and protects against dryness giving an authentic finish.
All beeswax based furniture products are best applied in a warm ambient temperature to improve absorption. Ideally, the container should also be gently warmed beforehand to soften the contents.
- Neutral in colour but may initially darken the wood slightly as the natural oils are replenished. If in doubt, test on a small concealed area first.
- Not suitable for furniture with a French Polish finish.
- The tin should be firmly closed and stored in a cool place.
