Wood Polish FAQ's

Can wax polishes be applied to other wood finishes?

Yes, almost any interior wood coating can be over coated with a wax polish to improve the look and sheen. In some cases, a wax polish is applied to decrease the gloss level. For example, a glossy lacquer with a glass like shine can have more of a silky sheen when wax is applied.

What is the best application method for polishes?

Buffing machines are ideal for large floor areas, for example when using Bona Polish. Cloths are used for other areas when using something like Manns Classic Beeswax Polish. Good quality Stockinette Cloth is ideal due to its woven, coarse structure.

Which product offers the clearest finish?

Wood waxes and polishes are a great way of increasing the sheen level of bare wooden surfaces without altering the overall appearance or colour too much. We recommend Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish and Manns Classic Beeswax Polish for improving the sheen of wooden surfaces. these products become shinier the more they are buffed and when more wax is applied.

Disclaimer: Whilst every attempt has been made to provide product information that is as accurate as possible, it's important to clarify that trees and the wood that they produce can be affected by many factors. For example, the same species of tree grown in the same wood, even in close proximity, will be affected by age along with the amount of sunlight and water they receive. Other naturally occurring biological and environmental factors will also influence the density and grain of the wood as well as the moisture and oil content of the timber. No two trees are the same, meaning each piece of wood has the potential to look and react differently to the same wood finish. For example, product adhesion, colour variations, absorption rates and sheen levels. It is for this reason that we always strongly recommend carrying out test areas before starting any project
