How to Polish Wood Furniture

Did you hear the news? We recently started selling our very own beeswax wood polish! 

ALASAW Wood Polish 

In honor of such an event, here is a “how to” guide that will give you instructions on the simple steps needed to polish your wooden furniture using our ALASAW polish.


You’ll need to figure out what your wood piece is finished with in order to determine how exactly you’re going to polish it. If you’re at a loss and have no clue, read the manufacturer's manual. The different types of finish include varnish, wax, unsealed, or painted. If your wood has a wax finish, stick with a wax polish. If your wood has an oil finish, stick with an oil polish.”


SUPPLIES YOU’LL NEED:

-wood polish

-cotton washrag (make sure it’s clean)

-buffing cloth (make sure it’s soft)


STEP ONE: Apply the wood polish directly onto the cotton washrag and begin wiping it into the wood in the direction of the grain (or with the grain). If you need to apply anymore polish then feel free to add another layer.


STEP TWO: Use your buffing cloth to remove any excess wood polish.


And that’s basically it. Easy enough, right? Click on the sources below for more detailed instructions and information.
