There are many kinds of domestic beeswax, and the quality grade is also different because of the price, and the range of choice for consumers is large. Therefore, the price advantage of domestic beeswax products is obvious, generally between 40-100 yuan (per 400 grams). Sometimes, the same quality beeswax products will be imported more than twice as expensive as domestic ones.

Difference with beeswax
Beeswax products will naturally differ in their efficacy due to different prices. The most important point is wax oil. During the maintenance of the furniture, the beeswax secretes a layer of wax oil. After the beeswax is wiped onto the furniture, the good beeswax and the wax oil volatilize quickly; the poor beeswax, the wax oil content is high, and the volatilization is slow. However, the amount of wax oil is difficult to distinguish in the selection process, and can only be felt during use. Therefore, different beeswax will have different effects in use.

Difference with beeswax

Another difference in beeswax is the softness of the wax itself. At normal temperature, good wax storage time is longer, it is generally difficult to deteriorate, basically it is still the original look. The poor quality wax will often become too soft or too hard after being stored for a period of time, which is not convenient to use. These differences are caused by the different quality of the beeswax. Of course, when observing beeswax, it is also necessary to eliminate the difference caused by temperature changes, because the wax itself will change with the temperature.

The use of beeswax is very simple. Wipe the wax onto the furniture with a cotton cloth. If the temperature difference is large, the wax itself will have different degrees of soft and hard changes. When the wax becomes hard, it needs to be softened first. Under normal circumstances, first put it in a warm room and use it the next day.

In addition, after use, it should be sealed at the first time to avoid the entry of debris and affect the practical effect of wax.

They are mainly used on furniture that is color-matched, such as red sandalwood, ebony, etc., which need to use black beeswax; huanghuali, rosewood, etc. are more suitable for white beeswax. The color of the beeswax can make the color of the same color furniture more prominent and play a role. Domestic waxes are generally primary colors. However, the foreign wax is only a hundred yuan, and there is no domestic wax in bulk, which has the advantage of high cost performance.
