Polishing a dining table is great as it gives the table a deep shine when it may have started to look dull and discoloured. Only issue with repeated polishing is that a build-up of dirt may appear.
This is why you should wax and buff your table, helping to give it a deep shine whilst also filling in any tiny scratch and/or scuff which may have appeared on the table.
Apply some furniture wax onto a cloth and apply using long strokes, covering the table with a thin coat. Don’t worry about using too much wax, as your table won’t need it. Once you’ve applied the wax, allow it to dry for the recommended amount time (this can be found on the instructions). When buffing the table, use a clean cloth and move it in circles.
