There are two reasons for The Natchez Solution's success. One is the selection of oils in the formula which are heat-blended with raw beeswax and lemon oil to "feed" the wood and bring out its luster; the other is the method used to suspend the all-natural ingredients so they won't separate and leave behind the age-old problem of wax build-up. The wax and oils feed into the wood together and replace the lost sap to keep the wood alive. This prevents furniture from cracking and splitting and drawers from sticking as a result of age and natural wear and tear.

The Natchez Solution's customers say there is no substitute. "I've never seen anything like it," said Ben Long, owner of Uncle Ben's Country Cottage in Jackson. Long buys the product by the 55-gallon drum for polishing his hand-made furniture. Long also uses it with 0000 steel wool to clean and polish antique wood. Pennsylvania home restorer Jeffrey Wyatt uses Natchez Solution on hardwood floors. "We like to leave the patina in the floors of our restored homes," says Wyatt. "The Natchez Solution works great to clean the dirt and protect the wood. We even use it on staircases and mantels."
