Archaeology and Metal Detecting Magazine would like to make you aware of a small but growing contingent of individuals like myself, who have found that the use of the Aristowax Wood Silk furniture polish ( with Bees Wax) is convenient, cheap and a fantastic way of cleaning and preserving metal detecting finds.

I am somebody who uses this very regularly and is delighted with its overall use for a totally different use than is usually thought, A brief soak of coins and light use of a soft toothbrush and cloth, has given many of my finds – especially coins, an easy clean and instant preservation.

One of my colleagues – Graham Withers of Tempus: Archaeology and Metal detecting has used this product on a Bronze age pallstave axe head. Which had started to corrode fro bronze disease. The product cleaned and has conserved the axe, leaving in with a fantastic, museum like look.
