Mac’s Wax can be applied in multiple different ways, to multiple different products, for multiple solutions . . . .

Apply the Mac’s Wax to the surface liberally from close proximity, avoiding direct impingement from a height which can "impact feed" the wood leaving a temporary darker spot.

  • Using a rag, sponge or brush, spread the Mac’s Wax liberally over the surface to ensure good, even penetration.

  • Keep the surface from drying out for 10 to 15 minutes or so by spreading and “topping up” if necessary.

  • Leave to soak, the longer the soak the better the wax build on the surface (Overnight is good).

  • Then buff up with a clean dry cloth to a healthy lustre.

  • Results will improve with every application thereafter.

  • Be patient, Mac’s wax can take up to 3 months to fully develop its famous patina!



Apply enough Mac’s Wax with a cloth to just moisten the surface.

  • Allow to stand for about 5 minutes.

  • Buff up to a healthy sheen with a clean dry cloth.

  • Depending on temperature and humidity, Mac’s wax can take a few days to become fully finger-marking resistant.

Remember that Mac’s Wax will tend to darken leather, so bear this in mind when applying to light coloured leathers.

  • Always test a small inconspicuous area to confirm you are satisfied with the result before proceeding.

  • Leave to soak, the longer the soak the better the wax build on the surface (Overnight is good).

  • Mac’s wax softens leathers by penetrating deep into the leather fibres and lubricating them, so bear that in mind when deciding how much Mac’s Wax to apply in each case.

  • Either soak (saddles straps etc) or apply light coats (shoes, handbags etc) as above.



Mac’s Wax is amazingly effective at removing the "fat splatter" from all non-cook surfaces of your BBQ.

  • This includes stainless steel, plastic, paint and wood.

  • Apply liberally and wipe off with a clean cloth or paper towel after a short soaking time.

  • Apply Mac’s Wax to the stainless steel surfaces and see the finger marks disappear!

  • Allow 48 hours to dry completely after application.

  • Finally, buff to provide a surface that actually resists further finger marking.



  • Apply Mac’s Wax sparingly as you would to "lacquered surfaces".

  • Buff up to a healthy sheen after a short drying time.



  • Apply as you would to "raw wood", but more sparingly.
