Can I do anything about white heat marks, ring marks and water marks on my wood furniture

You now know about Heritage Woodcare – who makes it,what it is, how to use it and what makes it so special. In a nutshell  it cleans and polishes at the same time and will also remove most white heat, ring and water marks.

I will  to use this post to look at these marks.Some people might regard them as the history of the furniture and aren’t really concerned whilst other people feel those type of marks disfigure their furniture and want them gone. Now if this is case as long as there is there is no damage to the finish (e.g. a water mark that has damaged the finish allowing the water to get into the grain, burn marks, etc. )  then removing these marks shouldn’t be too difficult. If there is damage then that will have to be repaired first before removing the marks..Your Heritage Woodcare, whilst it will remove most of these marks as they are usually contained within the buildup and it removes this buildup, will not repair damage. It will take off most of these marks but is not instantaneous and will probably need several applications

Use your Heritage in the usual way, ( i.e. give your bottle a thorough shake, pour some into a container, take any soft, dry and clean cloth and soak it in the polish, squeeze and wring the cloth out till it is damp dry, pour any remaining polish back into your bottle (not forgetting to put the top back on properly)  and just wipe following the direction of the grain).You should start to see an immediate difference as the buildup is removed however if there is a heavy buildup, the surface of the furniture may start to go streaky. This is quite normal and just indicates that  your furniture needs more than one application. Carry on using your heritage until all the marks and streaks have been removed.

Using your Heritage regularly is recommended as, unlike wax polishes, it does not cause any buildup.

Heritage Woodcare on wood floors

Now that I have told you about Heritage Woodcare I need to tell you where to use it. For instance, did you know that you can use it on your wood floors?

 It is absolutely fabulous on wood floors – both natural woods and laminates. I do have personal experience of using it on wood floors as in my home the hall and lounge do have oak parquet floors,(I know they are oak because an area needed making good after I took a wall down so I took a tile to a wood merchant  and was told it was oak) These floors were covered in carpet when we moved in. I took the carpet up  intending to replace it only to reveal this wonderful parquet floor. It took a great deal of cleaning and to complete the job I used green scotchbrite scouring pads soaked in Heritage Woodcare to scrub the floor. In the process of scrubbing the floor I noticed that the black marks caused by bitumen oozing up between the tiles were also removed.
After scrubbing, the floor required some restoration as some of the tiles were missing (that is how I discovered it was oak!) but now all I do is mop the floor using Heritage Woodcare about once every six weeks and sweeping in between .I have said Heritage Woodcare is easy to use!
 Heritage Woodcare works a treat  on your wood furniture. As you now know it is very easy to use but what I haven’t yet told you is it  will clean and polish your furniture at the same time and, unlike wax polishes, it will not leave any buildup no matter how often you use it. Indeed, Heritage Woodcare removes the buildup caused by silicones, waxes, grease and grime. I will tell you about this in my next post.

Continuing Heritage Woodcare

Continuing the theme of my previous posts when I told you  the basics of Heritage Woodcare I, in this post, i wil ltell you a little more about it ..Heritage Woodcare is supplied in three sizes – 500 ml, 1litre and 2 litres Incidentally,  it is perhaps worthwhile pointing out  that whilst I can send  all sizes within the UK, international postal restrictions prevent me sending more than 500mls outside the UK

Now, you have read my posts but why should you buy it?  What does it do? Well  Heritage Woodcare takes off all the build-up of silicones, waxes, grease and grime and  takes your wood back to it’s original finish. It will also remove  most ring marks, heat marks and water marks {although they may require more than one application.} Although  it is /primarily meant for wood  (furniture, flooring, panelling etc.) you will also find your Heritage has many other uses such as in your kitchen, polishing your car, etc. However I will tell you more about them as well as it’s traditional uses in due course.

Right, you have ordered your Heritage Woodcare and received it {Incidentally you may have received a bottle branded ”Celtic’ Don’t worry. this is exactly the same product as ‘Heritage’ but is supplied to countries where the ‘Heritage’ brand can’t be used and if the manufacturer has been using the ‘Celtic’ brand when I order then that is what I receive! }So, how do you use it?

Using Heritage Woodcare is very easy. First take your bottle and give it a really good shake. If you look closely at your bottle you will see that it contains two liquids – a clear one and a white one. and you need to mix these liquids together which is why you need to shake it well. Having shaken your Heritage, pour some into a container. Then take a clean absorbant cloth (I use dusters but you can use any cloth as long as it will absorb the polish – many people use old tee shirts or underwear) Soak it in the polish and then ring it out till it is damp dry. What remains in the container can then be carefully poured back into your bottle and don’t forget to screw the cap down securely. There is nothing worse than shaking your bottle only to find the cap is loose as I have found to my cost more than once! Don’t worry if the polish has taken on some of the colour of your cloth, it won’t affect how it works.

You are now ready. All you need do now is wipe, following the direction of the grain. Don’t panic if the surface of your furniture goes streaky, this is merely the polish doing it’s job and indicating that more than one application is needed. in addition to the buildup of silicones , waxes, grease and grime Heritage Woodcare will also take off most white heat marks, ring marks and water marks but, again, more than one application may be needed. And that, as they say, is that. You don’t need to buff up and Heritage Woodcare does not vause any buildup so you can use it as often as you want

Heritage Woodcare for 2016

It is a new year so I ought to make a new start. I thought then that  I ought to start from the beginning. So what is Heritage Woodcare and why is it so special? 
It is made in Dublin by Drigate Products (Mfg)Ltd, which is a  family owned company who  have a commitment to manufacturing and supplying the very best in traditional cleaning and nurturing products. You will find that these really do look after your wood and leather goods, 
Heritage Woodcare (and its’ sister product  Heritage Leathercare} are based on Victorian craftsmans recipes and contain old fashioned tried and tested ingredients.They have, however, been updated, using modern technology, to enable them to cope with 21st century developments. Heritage Woodcare is just one example of their approach to bringing the very best products to your attention.
Heritage Woodcare is, then, a twentyfirst century product based as I have said on a tried and tested recipe that is decades old and was known only by the grand masters of the furniture crafts. These men would spend hours cleaning and polishing  wood products, The results of these grandmasters attention to detail can still be seen today when looking at many priceless antiques. Few people today have the time, or the patience, of these grandmasters, so after much research, and backed up by modern technology, this centuries old recipe has been updated to produce Heritage Woodcare. which gives the same outstanding results in a fraction of the time. 
Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use and can be used on many different products in addition to wood.To use your Heritage first take your bottle and give it a really good shake.  Having shaken it pour some into a container. Then take a clean absorbant cloth (I use dusters but you can use any cloth as long as it will absorb the polish ) Soak it in the polish and then ring it out till it is damp dry. What remains in the container can then be carefully poured back into your bottle not forgetting to screw the cap down securely.

I have black marks on my parquet floor

One thing that crops up regularly in my inbox is requests for help dealing with black marks caused by bitumen seeping up between the tiles on parquet floors. 

Now this is a problem I had myself when my wife and I took up the carpet in our hall. When the carpet  was I lifted  it revealed a  wonderful parquet floor made from oak. I was very pleased with this. No way could I afford to put a floor like this down at today’s prices. As the carpet had been down for a number of years, the parquet was very dirty and there was a lot of  black marks from the bitumen used to stick the “tiles” down. I  did eventually pursued my  wife not to bother with another carpet but it was on the condition that I polished the floor.

I  had to sweep the floor several  times before I was able fo remove all t the dust,  which had accumulated over the years.I  then needed  to clean and polish the floor..  To do this I used Scotchbrite (a non-scratch scourer) soaked in Heritage Woodcare and scrubbed the floor. I was very pleased with the result as the  floor came up beautifully with the added bonus that all the black marks between the tiles were removed. All that is required now is regular polishing using a mop soaked in Heritage Woodcare

How to deal with seagull droppings on outdoor wooden furniture

I did a recent post about using Heritage Woodcare to look after your outdoor wooden furniture. I don’t know if it was as a result of that, I can only assume it was, but I have received an email from a reader who lives in Burnham on Sea about seagull droppings  on this type of furniture. It is quite a problem for my reader.  

Well  the earlier the droppings are removed the better as they are acidic and can cause damage to the finish. You first need to remove the droppings and to do this I would suggest using a piece of damp paper kitchen towel or something similar. That should gets rid of the of the actual dropping, the nuisance problem, although there will probably still be a mark.

My next move would be dependent on the type of wood used to make the furniture and the finish. If, for instance, your furniture is teak that has been allowed to weather and has a silvery finish I would probably just sand the affected area and then leave it to weather back to the silvery colour. Using polish or something similar would damage the silvery effect and turn it black

If the furniture has been painted or varnished or has been waxed or has a similar finish then you are safe to use a product like Heritage Woodcare. As always when using products like Heritage Woodcare, apply it to the whole area not just the damaged area. This way you are stopping the finish becoming patchy and streaky. For full instructions on how to use Heritage woodcare visit http://www.heritagewoodcare.co.uk/how-to-use/

You can obtain Heritage Woodcare online, (visit http://www.heritagewoodcare.co.uk/products-page/ ) by post, (send your order, delivery address and payment to DCK Services, The Technocentre, Puma Way, Coventry, CV1 2TT). or you can order by phone, (ring on 07967 139636)
