You will need a few cloths to carry out the procedure.
Apply the reviver to the surface with a soft non abrasive cloth and spread along the furniture going in the same direction as the grain, “never in a circular motion”. Keep the surface well lubricated as you spread across the furniture. Once completed get a second cloth and wipe off excess reviver. Finally get a fresh cloth and buff to a smear free shine. Turn the cloth regularly when buffing.
