Application Directions

  • Preparation Warning
    Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
    • All surfaces must be free from dust, dirt, grease etc.
    • Apply a thin, even coat of Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax with a clean cloth. A thin even coat can be conveniently applied by placing a small quantity of Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax in double thickness of cheese cloth and applying only the amount that works through cloth as it is rubbed over the surface.
    • Allow Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax to dry thoroughly (10-15 minutes)
    • Polish with a clean cloth, weighted buffer or electric polisher. Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax produces a hard, dry, oil-less polish.
