How to Remove Old Wax From a Table Top
The rich luster of a well-waxed wood table is both attractive and functional, as the wax layer helps prevent scratches and other damage to the wood. After many years or even months of regular waxing, the buildup may do the opposite though, dulling the surface of the wood and making it appear dirty. Regular water will not remove the wax buildup, and applying fresh wax over the old wax only compounds the problem. With the proper cleansers, the wax easily wipes off and returns the tabletop to its former luster.
