Best cleaner to remove wax- 409? Naptha?

11 years ago

I am using Behlen Jet Spray toner to tone some mahogany dining room chairs.

The chairs were refinished using lacquer about 20 years ago.

The finish is nice but the color is UGLY.

I experimented with one chair. I cleaned it with low odor mineral spirits- let dry and then proceeded to use the toner.

I really liked the results but in a few small areas I got fish eye. I assume the mineral spirits did not remove all the wax.

What else would work better on wax removal?

I did a search and 409 and Naptha were mentioned.

Thanks in advance!
