Traditional Furniture Polish

£9.00/Tin
Quantity: Tin Tins
This polish contains beeswax from my hives and the finest Swedish Turpentine. In times past this was the polish of choice to maintain fine timber furniture. The Turpentine cleans the surfaces and penetrates the timber replacing lost moisture, the beeswax is left on the surface to create a barrier and buffs up to a lustrous shine. Wipe on with a soft cloth, working in broad sweeps across the grain. Leave until the surface until it takes on a misty look then buff the surface with a clean soft cloth. 
 
Turpentine has an unmistakeable odour and is poisonous if taken internally, please read the label. However if it is used sparingly, as it should be, the polish will lift grim and restore the grain. A patina will develop over time.
