Wood craftsmen around the world have used BRIWAX to protect, restore and recondition fine furniture and antiques to their original "patina" which could only be duplicated by laborious hand rubbing before the BRIWAX blend. This unique "craftsman's choice" is now available to American professional woodworkers and refinishers, as well as the quality conscious homeowner who simply wants to keep their furnishings or antiques in top condition. An inherent cleaning solvent in the wax is cleans grease and grime off the surface before it evaporates. Various dye colours suspended in the wax allows it to diminish minor scratches without changing the character or colour of the piece. Leaves a beautiful finish that is easily maintained. Result is reversible, simple remove with mineral spirits (paint thinner). Note: Briwax may turn into liquid in hot weather during transportation in a hot delivery truck, therefore do not open immediately upon its arrival. This in no way diminishes the quality of the product. Simply allow the container to come to room temperature to return to a paste form.
