The correct method to apply Wax on Antique Furniture Antique furniture should always have the original finish preserved and the best way to do this is by using a wax finish as it is very easy to apply, it will clean any old dirt and keep the finish on your antique furniture looking attractive.
The biggest mistake when applying furniture wax, is applying too much at once as this will make it difficult to buff up and if not buffed up correctly it will act as a dust collector leaving your finish dull.Before you start ensure the surface is clean and dry, clean the surface with a cloth and if it is very dirty you can use a moist cloth sometimes by adding a tiny amount of vinegar to the water (but ensure it is very diluted), this will remove some of the dirt and dust that has built up over the years.To get the dust out of the nooks and crannies try using a soft bristled dusting brush or even a tooth brush.Before applying the wax stick, warm it in your hand and use the plastic spatula provided.
Scrape some of the wax off of the stick and press it firmly into the hole or crack.
The other wax stick we supply is for Dark coloured woods such as dark oak, dark mahogany and darker walnut shades of wood.
