I have a newly-varnished pine floor. Can anyone advise on how to
maintain it. I dare say many people use wax, but I'm a little
reluctant to use wax, in case at some point I decide to apply more
coats of varnish. (It has had four coats of polyurethane, but it's
possible that further coats in the future might be in order.)
Depends on the wax. Not all waxes are slippery, not all waxes are even
shiny. Polishes sold for floors are okay but eventually need stripping off.
I'd stick with your varnish. You can get a nice sheen by orbital sanding
with a fabric backed abrasive, only you put it on the sander upside down.
The backing is enough to de-nib the varnish without breaking the film.
