I used naphtha to clean old furniture polish, dirt, grime, oil and whatever else on there and the naphtha left a milky white residue on the chair. I continued to rub with 0000 steel wool ande naphtha to reach what was un derneath and it looks like the original finish, shiny wood. I used Briwax on the white residue and it disappeared but the finish still looks dull. I used Briwax on the finish under the dull part and it looks beautiful. How can I continue to remove the dull and dark part woith out hurting the finish underneath, can I still use the 0000 steel wool or just a bunch of rags and alot of elbow grease?
Here I think you will find the answer to your problems, I hope this helps:
Thank you, I have decided to refinish the furniture and the refinish wizard has helped me tremendously! I am enjoying this new hobby of mine and am very excited to get started, even bought a wood stool at a thrift store to practice on before tackling my dining room furniture.
Thanks again, Carla
