Restoring Lustre to Antique Furniture - How To Apply Polish
Today I'll be giving you a quick demonstration on how to apply furniture polish to your furniture. The product we're using today is a furniture polish which contains beeswax. It basically cleans, shines and protects. It's silicone free and contains no water.
Now before you begin you'll need two cloths: one to apply the polish, and one to later buff the polish off. So give your can a quick shake, apply sparingly across the entire surface of the table, grab your first cloth and start with circles across the grain. We are doing circles today because the timber is a parquetry top, and has no one way direction.
So once you've worked the polish in (quickly do the edges), grab your next cloth, and the same thing, just circles, and finishing off with long strokes across the grain. Within a few minutes, you have cleaned the surface of any grime, and leaves a streak free shine.
The beeswax polish cleans, protects and shines. By using beeswax, it buffs up to a beautiful lustre, and it also adds a layer of protection which aids against abrasion.
