How to Polish Vinyl Surfaces with Life O' Wood

1. Preparation:
Before you start polishing, make sure to clean the vinyl surface with a soft cloth and mild vinyl cleaner to remove any dirt, debris, or stains. This will ensure that the polish adheres evenly to the vinyl surface.

2. Application:
Shake the bottle well and apply a small amount of Life O' Wood Multi-surface Polish to a clean, soft cloth. Gently rub the polish onto the vinyl surface in a circular motion, working in small sections at a time.

3. Buffing:
After applying the polish, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the surface in a circular motion. This will help remove any excess polish and enhance the shine and flexibility of the vinyl.


Tips for Polishing Vinyl Surfaces

Before applying Life O' Wood to an entire vinyl surface, it's always a good idea to test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure compatibility and desired results.

A little goes a long way with Life O' Wood Multi-surface Polish. Overusing the product can result in a sticky residue, so use sparingly and buff well.
