I use the bees wax stuff by warwick on my thumb. There are these klenex (sp?) paper towels that are really thick and soft, and that leave no lint, these really work for me. I have heard some people use their fingers to apply the wax... what's your method??? I'd love for my bass to really shine although it's an oil finish. Are there other products that work better than the bees wax stuff, but are still as "healthy" for the wood?
