Clean the surface with the TSP phosphate free organic degreaser or EVO Black Soap. On a surface with an old waxed finish, remove wax with EVO Citrus Solvent and a #00 steel wool. On bare wood you should apply one or two coat of tung or hemp oil as a sealer before applying the wax.
Apply with a wax brush or with a whitened cloth. Allow to dry for 5 to 10 minutes and wipe off the excess. Once the wax is perfectly dry (about 1 1/2 hours), polish with a whitened cloth or a polishing brush for a better lustre. Two layers may be required to obtain a beautiful lustre.
Apply a thin layer of Homestead House Black Furniture Wax once a year or as needed.
CAUTION – The finish reaches its maximum hardness after 30 days.
