The can of Briwax you purchased, more than likely, came with a GREEN plastic lid. This plastic lid is designed for physically stabilizing the product during shipping, for ease of stacking at your neighborhood retailer and also to secure a small educational pamphlet.
Once you open the can of Briwax, discard the GREEN plastic lid and RETAIN and use the METAL LID for storing your Briwax. The metal lid will keep your Briwax ready to use on your newly acquired antique or your next woodworking project.
