The way I do it is use a piece of an old T shirt, place a small lump of wax (like a tablespoonful) inside the rag, wrapping the cloth around the lump of wax, and wipe a thin layer onto the table surface, allowing the wax to ooze through the cloth.

Then wait a few seconds for the solvents in the wax to “flash off” and buff with a clean cloth. There should be no residue left behind, just a shiny, slippery table surface.

You can open up the rag after application and scrape the remaining wax back into the can before it dries out and gets hard.

Been doing it this way for decades. Works great for me. HTH.
