Perhaps one of you can enlighten me: wax, which has much to recommend it as a wood finish or at least as a dressing, is known to spot when water is allowed to stand, even for a short time.
1. Do other liquids affect it ? Lacquer thinner will destroy wax; mineral spirits will move it. Does alcohol make a different or a worse mark in a waxed wood surface ?
2. More important: How are spots best dealt with ? Can one simply apply more of the same wax -- with its resident volatiles ready to penetrate and heal ? Or are there other "precious emollients" (cosmetic industry advertising language) that work better to remove water spots, etc ?
