Minwax 785004444 Paste Finishing Wax, 1-Pound, NaturalUnlike mass produced furniture, chalky finish painted furniture sealed with a wax  #CommissionEarned sealant may need a little more loving care to assure your investment remains in premium condition. Over the years dusting and regular use may wear some of the sealant off leaving the surface porous to the touch.

The great news is caring for your work of art is easy!  Here are 3 easy tips:

#1 Keep it Cool

Keep your piece away from extreme temperatures or humidity.

#2 Gentle Cleaning

Dust with a soft, lint free cloth #CommissionEarned and avoid all liquid furniture polishes. To clean marks or stains, use a slightly damp lint free cloth #CommissionEarned or chamois with a little mild soap. If you decide you need to use a stronger cleaner, keep in mind you may need to re-wax the area afterwards.

#3 Repair

If the wax sealant becomes stripped you can apply a very small amount of wax to the affected area and buff with a microfiber free cloth #CommissionEarned . Allow to dry for 24 hours. Avoid putting anything on top of, or touching the area for a few days allowing the wax #CommissionEarned  sealant to cure.
