Additional Notes:

Rub only on fully cured finishes:
Follow coating manufacturer’s dry time when rubbing new finishes.

A more agresive cutting action will result when Wool-Lube is mixed with water.

For Best Results when rubbing out a finish, make sure the finish is fully cured and not just dry.
Most air dry finishes need a full 21-30 days under good conditions to achieve maximun cure and hardness. The harder the finish the more predictable and consistant the result.
