Fluffy Bookshelf Trim

I salvaged a set of shelves that were located in an institution’s hallway for some years.  There was a mysterious film on the kickplate at the front bottom of the shelves.  It took me a while to figure out what it was.


I scraped about a handful of the stuff off a three foot length of panel.  It had been in the hall for long enough to build up a nice coating of floor wax from the side of the orbital buffer.

I’ve always vaguely understood what was meant by marketing copy that describes car wax as “fluffy”, but I don’t think that this is what they meant.
