Answer . There are many good "wax stripping" products out on the market so go to your local hardware store and ask for help there. Get them to explain how you use it and h…ow much to use. It can be a long process, but certainly worth it. Be sure you do this project outside because the fumes can be over-powering.. stripping wax off old furniture . \nDepending on how old the furniture is, you may be making a mistake taking the wax off - it's the wax that gives it the "old Look" or patina. If you strip it off you may de-value the item. Good luck.
First, do NOT wax laminate floors in the first place! They are not supposed to be waxed. However, if you are in a situation like I am, namely the previous owners waxed your… laminate and now it looks awful, you can try scraping the wax up with a credit card or store "club" card, or hitting it with a hot blow-dryer and wiping with paper towels.\n. \n Answer \n. \nAmmonia water will help dissolve and remove the wax. We used to do this periodically on our old-style asbestos tile. Works well and then you can clean as usual. It may take several tries to get it right. I also used Mop and Glow, which yellowed like wax, so this works to remove that, too.\n. \n \n. \nI also used the solution provided by Eric and www.fixmyfloors.com he gave great advice and saved me a bundle.
Answer . Iâve made my own beeswax furniture polish from a recipe I found in Robert McGuffinâs book Furniture Care and Conservation , published by AASLH Press. T…his recipe is similar to what many furniture conservators and museums recommend for hardwood furniture care. Iâve used this formula to help restore hardwood pieces that were in Katrinaâs floodwaters. And I still use it today with excellent results. Please read the whole recipe before beginning. Supplies One wide-mouth Mason jar or other canning jar with two-part ring-seal lid One cake of good-quality natural, non-bleached beeswax (It will be yellowish in color) Pure distilled Turpentine (NO TURPENTINE SUBSTITUTES) One piece of plastic wrap One wood paint mixing stick or other non-food use stirring implement Optional Additions A dropper of Lemon Oil (approximately a teaspoon) A dropper of Orange Oil A dropper of Lavender Essential Oil Assorted artist dry pigments for tinting and coloring polish for darker woods (Ochre and umbers work beautifully) Method Shave or shred enough beeswax into the Mason jar to fill it about two-thirds full. Then pour in enough turpentine to cover the beeswax, up to three-fourth full. At this point you can add either the lemon, orange or lavender oils for extra fragrance and/or the dry pigments for the degree of color need for the polish. Add color at about a half or an eight of a teaspoon at a time. I discovered that a mixture of one teaspoon of burnt umber with an eighth of a teaspoon of lamp black makes a great polish for darker woods such as aged oak or walnut. A teaspoon of yellow ochre is great for natural pine and other lighter-colored wood. Mix the contents well with a wood paint mixer or other non-food use stirring implement. Cover the top of the jar with the plastic wrap. Then close the jar with the two-part, ring-seal lid. The plastic wrap will keep the ring-seal on the lid for breaking down from the turpentine fumes. Place the jar outside in the sun for several days. Make sure itâs a warm day. Or place the jar in a warm place in your house for several days. Stir or shake the jar each day to mix the contents even more. The process can be speeded up by placing the sealed jar in a pan of warm just simmering water (not boiling) until the wax melts and blends with the turpentine. When the wax has completely melted into the turpentine, a soft paste will be formed. Application and Uses The finished paste can be used in place of most commercial waxes on most hardwood furniture that does not already have an oil finish. The beauty of the beeswax polish is that a little goes along way and does not have to be applied every time you clean or dust your furniture. Start with a clean, dust free surface. Do not use any commercial preparations to clean or dust the surface. A clean lint-free rag will suffice. A cloth diaper is ideal if they can still be found. Dab a little paste onto a clean rag and apply in a circular motion then finish with strokes along the grain of the furniture. REMEMBER A LITTLE GOES ALONG WAY. Let dry for about a half an hour to let the turpentine evaporate. Then buff the surface well in the direction of the wood grain with another clean soft lint-free cloth. This will bring out a nice shine. To maintain a piece of furniture that has be treated with beeswax paste. Just dust and buff the surface with a clean soft rag. No commercial sprays or other cleaners are needed. And if something spills on the surface, the natural waterproof properties of the beeswax will help prevent damage caused by most spillage. Just wipe with a gentle soap (Ivory) on a damp rag and dry thoroughly. Most people who use beeswax âbase polish only apply them once, maybe twice a year depending on the furniture. If you have a dining room table which is used every day, an application two maybe three times a year will work best. If you have a cabinet which is never used, an application of once every two years is fine. Just remember to dust and buff weekly if possible to revive the finish. If this method of cleaning is used, you do not ever have to worry about wax build up. It will never happen and is only something advertisers use to sell more expensive cleaning products. Non uses Do not use paste polish or any type of cleaning product on in-painted, gesso, flaking, gilt (gold) or metal leaf, furniture surfaces. Any cleaning method will cause more harm than good. Best advice is to consult a qualified furniture conservator if the piece is valuable. If not, then just leave it be and do not clean it at all.
Before repainting any furniture or cabinets, it's a good idea to wash it first with trisodium phosphate (TSP), which is found in the paint section of the hardware store. To re…move heavy wax build-up, use mineral spirits or paint thinner, rags, and lots of elbow grease. You might have to use fine steel wool, especially if the wax is in crevices. Remember, your goal is to remove the wax, not damage the wood. Any wax left on the wood will prevent the paint from sticking as it should, and you will be left with streaks.
Absolutely ... have your ear canals cleaned out by a medical professional. Unless you are medically trained, the only thing you should ever stick in your ear is your elbow. :-…)!!
Normally, no. Dogs do produce ear wax (cerumen), but it isnormally cleared out on a regular basis. However, some dogs dodevelop ear wax plugs, which can predispose them to dev…elopingrecurrent ear infections. If your veterinarian finds this, he/shecan teach you how to monitor your dog's ears for wax buildup andhow to clean it out safely.

i havent a clue but maybe clear wax might do the trick, does any one know how to take stains and prevents stains from corona furniture?.
My son and I have both experienced a clogged ear when there appeared to be no wax build up. While there was no exterior wax causing the clog, after consulting with our doctor …we discovered that there was in fact a wax build up far down in the canal that was not visible and too far in the canal to remove with a q-tip (which our doctor strongly suggested we never use). Instead, the doc said to use one of those rubber bulb suckers (used normally to remove mucus from the noses of babies). Here is what we did: 1. Take a hot shower and allow water to cover side of head for a good long while. 2. Fill bulb with hot water and firmly squeeze water into canal. 3. Repeat several times. Eventually, in both cases, a large wax plug was flushed out of the canal! I was really surprised when it happened to me because I was certain that there was no wax build up. . This is not an easy answer. It requires the person with the "clogged" ear to give more details. The best answer is to recommend that you see your health care professional for an exam. It could be one of many things causing your symptoms, and each would have a potentially different fix and different urgency. Cerumen Impaction For example, how do you know there is no wax build up? Has it been looked at with an otoscope? If not, there may well be impacted wax. It is something that has to be seen, not "felt". If that is it, then there are kits available over the counter to loosen and remove clogged wax build up. Speak to the Pharmacist for advice about use and products. Proper use of bulb syringes for irrigation is critical, if the flow of the water is too firm directly on the ear drum, it can cause problems, you will need the instructions for how to use this properly if you try it after other causes are ruled out. It may take more than one application to clear the wax if it is impacted. In worst cases, an ENT specialist may need to remove it for you. Do not put Q-tips into your ear canals, ever. They push the wax in deeper and compact it, embedding it at the same time with cotton or synthetic fibers which sets up virtual concrete in your ears. Once any impaction of cerumen (earwax) is cleared properly, if left alone, your ears will clean themselves of wax build up. If you try to remove the wax, you create an environment that can allow bacteria and fungi to take hold, and make things worse. Earwax performs important functions. It collects dirt and debris in your ear canal and moves it out of your ears where you can wash it off as you wash your face and external ears. It forms a layer of protective wax in the ear canal which is a water repelling shield (ear canals need to be dry to be healthy). The wax also is slightly acidic and will not allow the growth of bacteria, and, it even contains some mild antibacterial components. Swimmer's Ear When someone looks in your ear and there is no wax build up, they may see signs of infection. Could you have gotten water in the ear just prior to your symptoms? Water in the ear canal creates an environment conducive for infection by bacteria and fungi. If you notice a problem after getting water in your ear from a shower or swimming, this may be what makes the ear feel clogged. It usually requires antibiotics for otitis externa (infection of the ear canal), but once the current infection is treated, you can prevent this problem by avoiding getting the ears wet, and/or drying them quickly after (a hair dryer on low heat and low blower speed can feel soothing as it dries the ear canal). Some people are more prone to this than others, it can be a simple anatomical matter of having small ear canal openings that don't allow water to properly drain and dry after immersion. Additionally, if you increase the acidity in the canal, you can help prevent infections. There are solutions of vinegar water, etc. that a doctor may suggest, be sure to have the instructions for the proper water:vinegar ratio and use. Otitis Media Ears feel clogged when the middle ear is infected, only a doctor can diagnose and treat this. It can cause permanent hearing loss if left untreated. Eustachian Tubes/Sinus and Throat Infections Ears can seem clogged when the Eustachian tubes are inflamed by colds and flu and sinus and throat infections. These, again, need treatment and diagnosis by a doctor. If you have recently flown, the pressure changes in airplane cabins during take off and landing can create discomfort and muffled/clogged ear canals in some people temporarily during and after a flight. There are ear plugs made specifically for this, that help prevent sudden pressure changes in your ears, and makes flying much more pleasant for those with this problem. Hearing Loss A sense of clogging of the ear or ears can be a sign of hearing loss and once the medical reasons are eliminated by the health care professional's examination, it may be suggested that you get a hearing test.
No, not a good idea
The patient may place two or three drops of mineral oil into each ear once a week, allow it to remain for two or three minutes, and rinse it out with warm water; or place two …drops of Domeboro otic solution in each ear once a week after showering.
Removal by physician.. Ear drops.. Commercial ear cleaning solution..
It is usually some kind of wax, carnauba or beeswax, dissolved or partially dissolved in a solvent (which evaporates quickly) to soften it into a paste or liquid to allow the …wax to be spread easily over the surface of the furniture. It needs to be rubbed, or buffed, to make the surface shine.
