Product Spotlight: Fil-Stik
June 01, 2018
Mohawk Fil-Stiks® (often referred to as just Fill Stick) are
colored wax filler sticks that help eliminate nicks and scratches
in wooden surfaces- even useful for filling nail holes in your
floor boards! Functioning like a crayon, these color replacement
sticks provide quick and easy repairs that anyone can use. These
putty fillers are ideal for using on wood and leather furniture,
picture frames, plastics and paneling.
Keep in mind that Fil-Stiks® are not meant for "high traffic"
areas or parts of furniture that may come in contact with
HOW TO USE
- Use a leveler to remove any loose splinters in the damaged
area. You can use a leveler card or plastic putty knife. An old
credit card will even do the trick. Just make sure that the surface
around your repair is as smooth as possible.
- Pick the color of Fill Stick that best matches the finish of
your wood furniture. If you can't find an exact match, go with a
color that's a tad bit darker rather than lighter.
- Rub the Fill Stick into the damage like using a crayon.
You'll have to apply some pressure to make sure that the wax filler
completely fills your scratch.
- Get that leveler back out to scrape away the excess material
until the fill is even with the wood surface.
- Last, you'll want to use a soft, clean cloth to wipe away any
excess wax that remains after leveling. This will help if your
repaired area appears shiny following application. Be careful not
to wipe the repair.
