Applying Minwax Paste Finishing Wax Over Polyurethane

Want to have that floor finish bright and lustrous again?

The thing is, your flooring has probably been applied with a wax before. Can we apply it to the floor with a polyurethane finish?

The answer is yes! When you can see worn out scratches or marks on the floor that make it look dirty and unsightly, a good overlaying of another finishing wax would be best.

Hence, I introduce to you one of the best products to perform this task: Minwax Paste Finishing Wax.

Minwax Paste Finishing Wax over polyurethane works great as it adds luster to it and a fine new look.

If you are a newbie to this type of method, Minwax Paste has the ability to revive what was once worn without the tedious effort of removing the polyurethane layer.

Having that fresh luster in your house’s flooring can never be more satisfying with this product.

Steps To Take For Application

The steps would be as easy as applying it for the first time, or maybe even much simpler.

It might take some time actually, but seeing the fruit of your effort makes it totally worth it. The following steps can really help:

1. Clean Your Floor

If you don’t want any unwanted dirt, crumbs, particles or other matter showing through your finished product, you’d better clean up your floor first. You can use any standard method for cleaning your floor.

2. Apply The Wax

Use steel wool, a piece of cloth, or something similar. It all works. Steel wool may be more effective for penetration, but it can depend on how you apply it.

Don’t use too much or ridges may form in your application. Make it thin and smooth. The good thing is, the rubbing motion does not necessarily need to be parallel with the floor’s grain.

3. Let It Dry

Let it dry for 15 minutes at most.

4. Buff It

Buff your floors with either a floor buffer or lambswool buffing pad. It doesn’t take very long to do this.

5. Repeat Until Satisfied

Finally, let the finish dry up for another 6 to 8 hours. If the shine doesn’t suit your preferences, go through the same procedure again until you get the shine you’re looking for.
