Beeswax Furniture Polish
Posted July 22, 2014
To polish your antique and everyday furniture, natural beeswax is the way to go, it is so easy to make your own beeswax furniture polish and it will preserve your everyday and antique furniture for years.
Beeswax furniture polish made at home can really improve the quality of air in your room/home. The sweet fragrance of the beeswax will provide a clean and natural scented environment.
Warning: Don’t melt beeswax over an open flame, either double boil it or use the micorwave (medium setting, treat it the same as you would melting chocolate).
- 4 oz beeswax
- 2 tablespoons carnauba wax (palm or brazil wax)
- 2 ½ cups odorless turpentine or mineral spirits
Melt both the waxes in a double boiler. Once they have melted completely, add the turpentine or mineral spirits. Mix the polish properly with a wooden spoon and take a clean cloth to apply it over the furniture. Dip a small part of the cloth in the polish and rub it over the furniture in small circles. Keep turning the cloth once it gets dirty. Let the polish dry and then take another clean cloth to buff the furniture. Apply more than one coat if necessary.< Go Back
