Cleaning and polishing wood furniture
in my last two posts I have told you about Heritage Woodcare – what it is, how to use it and concluded by explaining using it to remove most white heat marks, ring marks and water marks. In this post, and future posts, I intend telling you of other uses for it. Perhaps the most popular use is on furniture. You can use it to clean and polish any type of wood furniture (natural woods and man made woods) but we don’t recommend it’s use on untreated wood, especially soft woods like pine. If the wood has been waxed or had some similar finish eg oil, paint, varnish, etc. then you will be ok to use your Heritage Woodcare. It is also ideal for use on plastic finishes such as melomine
You use it as described in my last post ie shake your bottle, pour some into a container, soak any soft, clean cloth in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out till it is damp dry, pour any surplus polish back into the bottle not forgetting to put the top on tight and you are ready.
All you do now is wipe following the direction of the grain. For the best result do ensure you wipe the whole surface not just marks or stains. Usually only one or two wipes are needed to bring back the original finish although there will be some occasions when you will need several treatments to bring back that finish e.g. a heavy build up of silicones or wax where the first treatment using your Heritage left the finish streaky (in this case just carry on using your Heritage Woodcare and after three or four treatments all the build up will be removed and your furniture will really look good), water or heat marks, nicotine, etc. I will deal with these in future posts.
