Furniture Care Tips
Furniture Care Products
There are a variety of products developed
especially for furniture care as well as other
products available that afford similar results.
Polishes, waxes, oil treatments, stains and preservatives are
formulated to provide your furniture protection from the elements
and regular use.
Which products are right for your furniture depend on the amount of use as
well as climatic conditions. We've tried a number of products
over the years and have found some to be better than others,
while almost all products provide some level of protection and
care for your furniture.
Furniture waxes afford the longest lasting protection for your
furniture finishes and are available as a paste or liquid. Some
furniture paste waxes are colored to help disguise minor nicks,
scratches and other surface blemishes.
Lemon oil and other pure oil
polishes can leave behind an oily film that actually attracts dust
and moisture to your furniture surface. It's a common myth that you
need to feed the wood.
Furniture cleaners and dusting aids help to protect the furniture
finish and are recommended for regular use. The use of these
products helps to avoid scratching the surface when dusting furniture with
a dry rag.
Most furniture polishes are emulsion base and can be used
regularly on most furniture surfaces. It's a good idea to clean and
remove any wax from the surface prior to using a furniture polish
to avoid a cloudy appearance.
