OLD ENGLISH<sup>®</sup> Furniture Polish Aerosol

Can I use OLD ENGLISH® Aerosol to polish my hardwood floors?
No. This product cannot be used to polish hardwood floors because it will make the surface extremely slippery. For hardwood floors we recommend MOP & GLO® Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner.

How can I remove OLD ENGLISH® Aerosol that has been sprayed on an unsealed, unfinished, bare wood surface?
If the wood is unprotected or unfinished (such as raw pine) and the area sprayed is relatively small, then apply odorless mineral spirits & pressure blot with a clean cloth to draw out the OLD ENGLISH® from the wood.

What is the difference between the OLD ENGLISH® Aerosols and OLD ENGLISH® Oils?

With Aerosols and Oils, OLD ENGLISH® gives you flexibility to choose the product that best suits your needs. Aerosols help to provide a high gloss shine on wood surfaces. They contain cleaning agents which aid in the removal of different types of soils and prevent wax build-up. Aerosols also provide protection to the furniture surface and are easier to use. OLD ENGLISH® Oils helps protect against water spills and conditions your wood furniture during regular cleaning and dusting. It brings out the natural luster of your wood furniture.

OLD ENGLISH<sup>®</sup> Oil

How often should I use OLD ENGLISH® Oil on my furniture?
OLD ENGLISH® Oil may be used daily since this product does not contain ingredients which will cause a build-up on your furniture. Please make sure you wipe the excess oil off with a soft cloth. When using this product, please follow all directions as listed on the container. It is an excellent dusting aid in addition to polishing.

How can I remove excess OLD ENGLISH® Oil from my furniture?
Wipe with a clean absorbent cloth until dry. Any remaining excess oil left on the surface will evaporate after several days or absorb into the pores to protect and shine.

Sometimes the furniture will appear darker because the oil has penetrated into the pores of the surface. The excess oil should be wiped away. The darker appearance should dissipate as the protective oil spreads evenly and the excess evaporates.

OLD ENGLISH<sup>®</sup> Scratch Cover

After using the OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover some areas appear darker. What can be done to remove these darker spots?

We recommend using OLD ENGLISH® Oil. Apply the product to the stains with a white cloth soaked with the oil. This should dissolve the dark brown dye, or make it lighter in color.

Will OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover actually fill the scratches or will it just cover them?
OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover is formulated to cover the scratches and nicks on your furniture. This product will not fill in deep scratches.

Can OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover be used to polish furniture?
No. This product is strictly for covering minor scratches and nicks on your wood furniture. It is not meant to be used as a furniture polish. To polish your furniture try OLD ENGLISH® Oil or OLD ENGLISH® Aerosol to polish your furniture. Please follow all directions as listed on label.

How can OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover be removed from furniture?
This product has a great penetrating quality that is necessary to cover scratches effectively. We recommend using OLD ENGLISH® Oil. Apply it liberally to a white soft cloth. Buff the area of the furniture where the Scratch Cover was applied with this cloth now soaked with OLD ENGLISH® Oil. This should dissolve the Scratch Cover or at least make it lighter in color. You may need to apply a second application of Oil. If you do not notice a difference in the appearance of the furniture after using the Oil, it may be necessary to sand down the furniture where the Scratch Cover was applied to remove the stain from the wood.

What is the recommendation for removing the wrong color Scratch Cover on furniture?
We recommend using OLD ENGLISH® Oil to remove the incorrect colored Scratch Cover from your furniture. Apply the oil liberally to the area where scratch cover was used. However, if the furniture has not been sealed and the surface is porous, the Scratch Cover previously applied may be permanent. If you do not notice a difference in the color of the furniture, it may be necessary to sand down the area where the scratch cover was applied to remove the stain from the wood.
