Hi, I'm Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy from R and D Wood Shop in Scotia, New York. Today, I'm going to show you how to clean wood furniture with cigarette smoke damage. This product is called Restore Finish. It works on furniture that's been in a fire. It also works on furniture that has a lot of smoke damage. There's no preparation, all you do is you take your rag, you put some of the Restore Finish on your rag and you wipe her down. Now if you need a little bit more elbow grease you can put a little steel wool into the action. Put the Restore Finish right on your steel wool, I'd use a low steel wool, like a 4 ought, or a 3 ought, maybe even a 2. You can see the sides coming out. You apply. I'm not going to do this one so I can show you, and then you just go ahead and you wipe it off. And what this does is it kind of melts the finish, blends it all together, applies a new finish all in one application. After you use the Restore Finish you have a second product that you need to put on and it's a wax. You want to use a bee's wax. You put it on with a rag, you apply, you can use small circular motions if you want. If not, straight across is fine. Try to go with the grain when applicable. Now the thing with the wax is that you've got to let it set for 20 minutes and I'll show you the removal when we come back. The removal part of the process of the wax is the same. You're just going to wipe with the direction of the grain. And make sure that you don't leave any of the product on. You want to make sure that you get off all the wax. And that's it. The Restore Finish can be used for cigarette smoke damage. It can also be used for furniture that's been in a fire. And this is Todd Languell, The Flying Furniture Guy, and this was how to clean wood furniture with cigarette smoke damage.
