Are you allowing Wood Elixir time to enliven the paint splatters before using 0000 steel wool? I usually allow Wood Elixir between 10-15 minutes to penetrate the spots, then rub lightly with steel wool and finish by buffing with a clean cloth. Wood Elixir can be left on for up to 1 hour, though maximum benefits are usually obtained after 15 minutes (though don't leave it in for more than an hour). The spray bottle is good for light touch-ups or annual maintenance, if you're trying to remove paint splatters I would apply it with a cloth or a small brush after shaking the bottle well before and during use (it will turn a creamy white color).
: I got the Elixer and have tried it on my Mission Oak chair. It doesn't seem to be taking the little paint spots off or sprucing up the finish. I followed the instructions to a T. Then I tried the 0000 steel wool. How long should I leave the Elixer on before buffing...should I spray it on or just spray it on a cloth and wipe on and then leave it??? Help
