Polish Made Using Beeswax

Beeswax polishes have been used for many centuries. They impart a lustrous finish that is mellow and not 'flash' or 'gaudy'.

Beeswax polishes are complementary to hardwood furniture and the appearance improves over a period of years... With regular, light, application.

The "High Shine" Polish is compounded with carnauba wax which will give a harder, more shiny finish, but the polish build up on furniture will be more brittle and may crack after many years use if adequate buffing is not given.

The Creme Polish is an emulsion containing beeswax and can be used on artificial plastic finishes, kitchen furniture, French polished items and leather goods.

The Leather Dressing is not actually a polish, but is a softening and preserving medium. Leather items that are required to be polished should not be treated with this product as the shine will not develop.

All of these products contain a solvent and should be tried first on a trial area to establish suitability.

there are now 'Health and Safety' rules that are applicable to polishes and it is now necessary to include the information that is contained in the label shown at right if there is Turpentine in the formulation of the product (usually the case).
