Polishes


Polishes -

Metal Polishes consist generally of deposits of white clays (silicious or diatomaceous), ground silex or quartz, powdered PUMICE or similar substances and oxalic acid, incorporated in putty powder, oil, soft soap or turpentine, etc. Other articles sold for the purpose include BATH BRICK, PUMICE and ROTTEN STONE (which see).

Furniture and Floor Polishes and Pastes are usually composed, in whole or part, of wax and turpentine, together in some cases with oil soap or linseed oil, coloring matter, etc.

Window and Mirror Polish can be made by moistening calcined magnesia with benzine. This must be kept stoppered or the benzine will evaporate.
