How to Use Sheen Genie Metal Polish Products

The great thing about Sheen Genie metal polish products is it is also a cleaner. This means you don’t have to clean your metal surfaces before your polish application. However, if your item is exceptionally dirty or has been left outside, you may consider a quick simple wipe down first. Don’t worry about the temperature of the surface, the warmer the surface the quicker the polish will dry. Take your Sheen Genie metal polish and apply about a quarter-sized amount to a soft cloth. We have found terry cloth works best. Then apply to your metal surface. Let the product sit for about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. You want the product to dry and not feel tacky to the touch. After you have waited for it to dry, take a clean section of the same cloth and wipe off the remaining product. Then you will follow the same process with the sealer + repellent to ensure the best results.

For example, rust happens when oxygen atoms steal electrons from iron.
