Polishing wood furniture
HOW OFTEN? Once a year
- Wipe down the furniture surface with a damp cloth and then with a dry cotton cloth. Select paste wax that has a high carnauba content; the natural, botanical substance acts as a wood protectant and won’t degrade the finish. Apply in a circular pattern.
- Leave on for a few minutes. Remove with a dry cotton cloth, using long strokes in the direction of the wood grain.
EXTRA CLEANING TIP: When the cotton cloth slides rather than drags, your job is done.
