BEHLEN #741 - WOOD CLEANER & Wax Remover


Wood Cleaner & Wax Remover dissolves and cleans old layers of dirt, grime, grease, smoke, old wax & polish buildup, fingermarks and other impurities. Wood Cleaner contains No water and will not raise the grain, harm veneers or remove the natural patina of the wood. You will be surprised at the number of pieces that Don't Need Stripping.

#741 Cleaner & Wax Remover will gently clean and prepare old & antique furniture and other wood surfaces for refinishing or polishing. If the finish is intact try Wood Cleaner first to clean all furniture and wood surfaces. Wood Cleaner (used properly) will not remove the original lacquer, varnish, shellac, or French polish finish.


Instructions For Use
1. [always test first] Apply generously and carefully to the surface being cleaned using a synthetic abrasive pad or #00, & on finer surfaces, #0000 Steel Wool .
Use steel wool with extreme Care
(or use a cloth) on delicate surfaces such as inlays & veneers.
(ON VERY FINE AND GLOSSY FINISHES USE
#0000/000 STEEL WOOL FOR CLEANING,
and On EXTREMELY DIRTY SURFACES, FLOORS, WOODWORK and on COUNTRY or ROUGHER FURNITURE STYLES USE #0 STEEL WOOL FOR CLEANING.)

2. Allow to stand for a few minutes.
3. Rub gently with the grain using #00 Steel Wool to dislodge the dirt.
4. Wipe with a clean cloth.
5. Repeat until the surface wipes clean.
6. ALLOW THE CLEANED OBJECT TO DRY overnight or 24 hours and longer on soft or porous woods or surfaces that were soaked with the Wax Remover in cleaning. Any trapped solvents that don't not show on the surface after a short drying time will have a harmful effect on the proper drying of any subsequent surface treatment, even oils or waxes, -- Let The Surface Dry !
---- a rushed job will always show it.
