From modern pieces to antiques, wood furniture is often a prized possession, as well as an expression of our individual personalities and taste. Furniture is also one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime and it deserves the best care you can give it.

All wood is susceptible to damage from the environment within our homes. Even in normal everyday use, there's a danger of scratching and abrasion. Often when furniture is neglected over a period of time, only costly refinishing can restore it.

OLD ENGLISH® offers you a wide range of furniture care products to provide the protection and conditioning your furniture deserves for virtually any wood finish.

So how do you keep your furniture looking its best?

Why it's Necessary to Polish Furniture
Today's furniture is protected with high-gloss, low-gloss, satin, or matte finishes. The finish keeps the surface from accumulating dirt, helps protect against scratches, indentations and changes in the wood's color. It also helps prevent the exchange of moisture between the wood and the atmosphere. As the seasons change, the moisture in the air causes wood to expand and shrink, which often causes the wood to crack and split.

When you polish your furniture, you are really polishing the finish and helping it to continue to help protect the wood. Using OLD ENGLISH® furniture care products will reinforce the finish and help protect it from everyday wear and tear. OLD ENGLISH® products provide the right kind of polishing and protection for virtually all types of wood surfaces. Proper wood care will keep your furniture looking like new and bring out wood's natural beauty.

So what’s the best method for polishing furniture?

Tips for Polishing Your Furniture
Keeping your furniture looking new doesn't have to be complicated. OLD ENGLISH® offers a wide range of furniture care products that will bring out wood's natural beauty. For everyday use try OLD ENGLISH® Furniture Polish Aerosol. It helps keep your furniture clean by picking up dust and soil, leaving behind a residue free finish. OLD ENGLISH® Furniture Polish Aerosol contains a PROTECTIVE SHIELD FORMULA that helps protect against everyday wear and tear such as watermarks and stains from crayons, candle wax, and mustard.

When polishing your furniture use old cloths, terry towelling, cotton knitwear or flannel cloths. Soft paper towels can also be safely used and will give excellent results. Types of cloths to avoid: coarse material, old clothing that may have buttons, snaps or trim that will scratch the finish and synthetics or permanent press fabrics which will not absorb moisture or excess oils. For extra convenience and great results, try OLD ENGLISH® Furniture Wipes.

OLD ENGLISH® also offers wood care products that nourish and revitalize your furniture. OLD ENGLISH® Oil products add a great shine to your wood and help protect it from everyday stains. OLD ENGLISH® Oil products also conserve oils in fine antique furniture, help prevent cracking in older, lacquer finished surfaces, and condition open grain oil finished surfaces (such as Scandinavian furniture). Apply OLD ENGLISH® Oil to your furniture and buff with a soft cloth until surface is dry and shiny.

What about everyday wear and tear?

Treating Everyday Wear and Tear on Your Furniture
Use a wood care product designed specifically for treating everyday injuries to your wood furniture. OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover is a liquid polish designed to hide nicks and scratches in wood furnishings, paneling and kitchen cabinets, restoring its natural beauty. This furniture care product is available in two formulas. For dark woods like mahogany and cherry use OLD ENGLISH® Dark Wood Scratch Cover. For medium to light woods like pine and oak use OLD ENGLISH® Light Wood Scratch Cover. To use, lightly moisten a dry cloth with OLD ENGLISH® Scratch Cover and apply gently to damaged area. Allow the furniture to absorb the liquid, then buff to a shine. Use with care to avoid staining clothing, carpets, etc.

Wax drippings can be especially difficult to treat, but not impossible. If wax is still soft, harden wax by holding an ice cube wrapped in plastic over it. Next, push it loose with non-stick spatula or a plastic card. If there is any waxy residue remaining, remove with OLD ENGLISH® Furniture Polish. Consistent use of OLD ENGLISH® Furniture Polish Aerosol or OLD ENGLISH® Oil wood care products help protect against everyday stains, such as wax crayons, candle wax, and mustard.

NOTE: Hot wax is capable of penetrating the finish. The coloring material and oils in the wax may stain the wood making it impossible to remove.
