What can go wrong ?
Common sense should prevent most problems. More than other complications, a first time user may apply too much wax, and then experience trouble in buffing out, after the solvent evaporates off. Always apply a thin coat and buff out to ensure that the surface has been completely covered.
TESTING IS THE BEST BEGINNING !
If it seems like way too much work, it probably is !!! Briwax will only come to a high hard luster when it is optimally thin and burnished. A process which is relatively fast to do with Briwax and is why Briwax excels above all the rest. A coat of wax is not generally what you want, but an optimally applied thin coat. And Briwax will out shine them all.
Initial application might take slightly longer due to a buildup of dirt, grease, oil, or old wax buildup. There after it is much easier and less frequent than normal cleaning with current products. Most often, even after many months, just a quick buff brings the luster back if it should seem to have dulled out.
This is a result of applying too much BRIWAX to the surface, not wiping of the excess, and letting it dry. A reapplication of BRIWAX with a clean cloth will dissolve and remove this excess wax and allow you the opportunity. to wipe thin before the solvent evaporates. But even with care streaking may still result.
(A TIP) A method which works well is to begin the buffing with 0000 steel wool. Take a pad, unroll it into a flat sheet. Lightly go over your Briwax till the wool glides and you just see the initial signs of a luster developing. There should be no drag when the wool is lightly floated over the waxed surface If there is, it is dragging on excess wax. In essence the excess problem wax is being mechanically removed by this method. Now switch to your buffing and burnishing process. We recommend cotton, buffing wool or best yet our "Pine Brush"
A buildup of furniture oil and dirt applied over the years may smear when BRIWAX is applied with a cloth. Use a 0000 (superfine) oil free steel wool to assist in lifting off the dissolved oil and dirt.
Too much BRIWAX can result in smearing. follow directions above or use denatured alcohol or mineral spirits with a course cloth to remove excess wax or oil.
This is caused by the absorption of BRIWAX into unsealed wood, such as stripped pine or oak. Reapplication of BRIWAX is indicated to fully seal the wood surface. This process may have to be repeated according to the porosity of the wood.
On finished surfaces, finish dull out is an indication that another application of BRIWAX is needed.
BRIWAX gives twice the surface coverage of a normal tin of wax, longer durability and much better protection from household spills and stains. BRIWAX does not have wax buildup like the other waxes. Over all it is a much better value.
