BRIWAX / BRIWAX ORIGINAL
Unsealed wooden surfaces should be smooth, dry and clean.
Apply Briwax using a lint free cloth or 0000 Steel Wool,
thoroughly working the wax into the grain. Once dry, buff
to desired finish with a clean soft cloth. Improved shine
and durability can be achieved by first sealing the surface
with Briwax Sanding Sealer. For antiques and pre-finished
furniture, first check compatibility, then apply Briwax
in small areas with a clean soft cloth. The Briwax finish
can be maintained by further applications which will give
increased hardness and shine.
This product is not recommended for use in areas where it
will come into contact with water.
Above 20°C, Briwax will soften and
liquify. Replace lid, put in a cool place and it will return
to its original
