What is Wax?

Wax is a substance definition for those chemical compounds which exhibit certain properties of solidity and plasticity at certain temperatures. It is a loosely used term to describe many different substances, but the most widely recognized is the substance produced by bees as a byproduct to honey. When selecting a wax for use on ones cabinets, it is important to note that there are waxes specifically for that purpose.

It is not recommended to use waxes not intended for use on finished wood, like those that are designed for shinning cars, to shine your cabinets. At the local hardware store, a selection of furniture waxes will be on offer. Many furniture waxes are sold in a liquid form. The liquid is applied with a paintbrush, along the grain, and when allowed to completely dry. Once dry, the wax is then buffered and the cabinets are shined. The process is time consuming and requires a delicate touch, but it is an inexpensive way to revitalize one’s cabinetry.
