HG terracotta wax protector strengthens the gloss and gives a protective coating to the wax polished terracotta floor tiles. At the same time it protects against stubborn dirt, stains and wear. Clean the floor beforehand with HG terracotta remover and allow it to dry for 3 days. To apply HG terracotta wax protector use a thin, non fluffy cloth wrapped around a squegee. Pour a little HG cotto wax protector on cloth and apply it evenly on the floor in one direction. Wait about 45 minutes before walking on the floor. For a deeper gloss and additional protection, apply a second layer at right angles to the first. For regular maintenance, HG cotto clean & shine is recommended.
