Application Process for Howard’s Restor-A-Finish:
As a Precaution, protect your fabrics and carpets when starting to restore your piece. If a spill does occur, scrub the area with soap and water or stain remover and wipe it dry.
Start off by choosing a color of Restor-A-Finish that matches the finish of your wood.
Tip: This is crucial to the end result. Choose wisely, as you wouldn’t want 2 different colors clashing on your piece.
Take your small pad or cloth and apply a small amount of the Restor-A-Finish. Avoid pouring Restor-A-Finish directly onto the piece to prevent using too much at one time.
Cover a small area at a time and immediately wipe dry. If you have any severe scratches and/or white rings, use your Super Fine Steel Wool in place of the pad and apply Restor-A-Finish starting with minimal pressure.
Tip: When using steel wool, you want to rub with the wood grain not against it. This allows the finish to mesh properly during the drying period.
After finishing up with the steel wool, wipe off any excess that may have accrued during the process.
