Direction For Use:

Test on an inconspicuous area first to ensure compatibility with the existing finish. Apply a thin coat with a lint-free cloth, throroughly working the wax into the grain. Once dry, buff with a clean, soft cloth or nylon pantyhose.

Helpful Hints:

Use Sparingly: When applying BRIWAX, LESS IS BEST. Streaks and smudges are often the result of too much BRIWAX in one application. Reapplication with a clean cloth will dissolve the excess, which should be wiped off before the solvent evaporates. If streaking persists, use a #0000 oil-free steel wool pad to help lift off dissolved oil and dirt. Use mineral spirits to remove excess wax if necessary.

 

Sealers: Improved shine and durability can be achieved by sealing the surface with shellac-based sanding sealer BEFORE applying BRIWAX. Applying sealer first will cause tinted BRIWAX to appear slightly lighter.

 

Uneven Appearance: Additional coats can usually alleviate an uneven appearance. Three thin applications are recommended for even penetration.

 

Once BRIWAX has been applied, DO NOT use any other household cleaner or spray on the finish. For routine dusting, use a clean, dry cloth.

Solvent will dissolve plastic!

 

Use with CARE. The tint in the BRIWAX color options is suspended in the wax and will give the appearance of color to wood. Removing BRIWAX will also remove the color. The tint will; however, stain clothing, carpeting, fabrics, linoleum, skin, and other porous surfaces.

Common Questions:

Should Briwax Come in Contact With Water?

BRIWAX is not recommended for surfaces that come in contact with excessive amounts of water. Standing moisture will eventually penetrate the surface of the wax and leave a white cloudy spot. This can be remedied by applying a very small amount of BRIWAX to that spot only.

What Is Briwax Is Made of?

BRIWAX is a blend of two natural waxes, beeswax and carnauba, along with a solvent that emulsifies them for ease of application.

What Is Briwax Is Made of?

BRIWAX can be used on new and antique furniture, wood floors, wood paneling, wood doors, kitchen cabinets, untreated leather, unpainted metal, and unpainted concrete. Use caution with painted surfaces as the solvent may lift a finish that has not properly cured. ALWAYS test in a inconspicuous area to ensure the desired result!
