Make sure the surface is clean. If necessary, clean with TSP. On bare wood, it is best to apply one or two coats of tung oil or hemp as a sealer before applying the wax. Sand lightly with 400 grit sandpaper or # 000 fine steel wool or with a white nylon pad.


The surface must be dry. Apply with a wax brush, a clean, non-sparkling white cloth or a cotton wick. Once the wax is completely dry (about 1 1/2 hours) polish with a cotton cloth or a polishing brush for better luster. Often two layers are necessary to obtain a beautiful luster.


Apply a thin layer twice a year for furniture and every two months for kitchen tools.
