Beeswax beauty

In preparation for a visit from my brother - the other person in the world who adores this sideboard as much as me (it's an old family one) - I got out some old beeswax polish and got to work.

Soon I noticed the smell. It was rancid, being about 10 years old. The ingredients were beeswax, vegetable oil and lavendar oil.

It sounded very much like the lip balm I'd made the day before. So I switched old for new, and the lip balm brought up the old oak beautifully.

I had to point out its gleaming status to my brother, sadly.
