How to Wax Concrete Countertops

Learn how to wax concrete countertops and protect your concrete counter with the finest countertop wax available. This non-toxic, durable wax is food-safe and specially formulated to improve the stain-resistance of the CHENG Concrete Countertop Sealer while providing a renewable shine whenever your countertop needs a little “pick-me-up.”

What You’ll Need

Applying CHENG Concrete Countertop Wax

  • Use a 100% cotton towel or an applicator pad that won’t scratch.
  • Apply by hand or with an orbital buffer.
  • Dampen the pad with water, wring it out, and apply the wax.
  • Wax small areas at a time with tight circular motions.
  • The wax dries extremely hard and needs to be buffed off while still soft.
  • Apply up to 3 coats on a new countertop.
  • Re-wax every few months or more for high traffic areas.
