Default How to remove existing wax

I just waxed the lacquer finish using Minwax polish but didn't like the result that much.

How do I remove the existing wax and reapply a different kind?

Use a mild solvent like mineral spirits... hardware store. You can go to an autobody supply and purchase "wax and grease remover".

BE SURE to test a small spot first...

I would just try a new wax over what is there and skip removing it... could be risky... even with the proper chemicals.

You can also try to wash it with a dish soap such as Dawn... A lot of people use that to remove wax from their cars. It is designed to be a strong soap to be able to get the greases from foods off your plates. Good luck
