Wood Elixir FAQ

What exactly is Dr. Woodwell's Wood Elixir?

Where can I find complete directions for using Wood Elixir?

If I have a really stubborn finish problem, should I use more Elixir or leave it on longer?
Two light applications will often work better than one heavy application. And, most stubborn finish problems can be solved by using Wood Elixir with 0000 (finishing grade) steel wool and rubbing gently in the direction of the grain. (If you have a high gloss finish, you will want to avoid using any abrasive - even the finest grade of steel wool will leave noticeable scratches on a high gloss finish.)
Wood Elixir only needs 10-15 minutes to allow it to penetrate the existing finish, but should not be left on for longer than 1 hour to prevent the nourishing oils from beginning to get "gummy". Simply wipe off with a clean cloth then buff until the surface is dry to the touch; apply a second treatment if necessary. Wood Elixir will continue to cure over a 24 hour period after use.
Will Wood Elixir solve MY particular finish problem? Can it restore any damage to wood furniture?

Can I apply a new finish once a piece has been treated with Wood Elixir?
Wood Elixir works to restore the existing finish, so putting a finish over another finish is not recommended. To replace the existing finish with a new one (refinishing), the existing finish needs to be stripped and the surface properly prepared first.
Can I apply a wax or polish after I have used Wood Elixir?
Yes, a good quality wax can be used to increase the gloss - carnuba wax is ideal.
