Q. What are the advantages of using Minwax® Wood Cleaner?

Minwax® Wood Cleaner has been exclusively formulated for use on wood surfaces. Unlike other surface cleaners, Minwax® Wood Cleaner is designed to clean wood surfaces without leaving a residue, which other all-purpose cleaners may leave.

Q. Where can I use Minwax® Wood Cleaner?

Use Minwax® Wood Cleaner on finished kitchen cabinets, furniture, moldings and any other wood surfaces which have not been waxed or oiled. Because most shellacs contain wax, Minwax® cleaners should not be used on wood finished with shellac. Do not use product on bare or unfinished wood.

Q. Does Minwax® Wood Cleaner need to be mixed with water?

No. It comes premixed and ready to use.

Q. What happens if Minwax® Wood Cleaner is accidentally used in excess on oiled, waxed or raw wood surfaces?

Minwax® Wood Cleaner will not permanently damage wood. If the product is accidentally left on a wood surface finished with wax, the finish may turn white, as it would if water were left on it for a long period of time. If the application of more finish does not repair the whitened areas, then reapply the oil finish using fine steel wool.
