I honestly can’t say I’ve put much about furniture care beyond your normal care. However when I look around my home there are a few pieces that I know I need to make sure last the test of times. Pieces that hold with it loving memories. For example this piece, the commode, was handed down to me from my mother. So I was happy to take part in a review of Guardsman Revitalizing Wood Polish.
I honestly can not tell you off hand the story behind the piece but it is one that has just always been there in every home I lived in as a child. I’m not sure how I ended up with it instead of my sister I know we both wanted it, but hey she got the “peanut butter and jelly napkin holder” so she isn’t empty handed. This piece of furniture currently holds some important items. It is some what of a memorial of sorts. It is adorned with a family tree on the right, a picture of my father holding Honey just two and half years before he passed away, a ship to the left which I bought at a garage sale because it so reminded me of my father, and above it hangs a memorial to my stepfather who passed in 2005. So you can see how important this piece is to me and the memories it is holding.
So it is important that I take care of it so I can pass it down one day to one of my children that will cherish it and hopefully keep the memories alive. I have never done more then just dusting with your every day dusting polish. I think once I tried the Old English but man that stuff is messy. Last week I received a can of Guardsman Wood Polish.
Purifying Furniture Wood Cleaner
Guardsman Purifying Furniture Wood Cleaner leaves wood fresh and clean to the touch. Safe for weekly cleanups, but tough enough to remove grime and residues left by food, grease—even other furniture sprays.
When it first arrived I thought it looked like all the other dusting type cleaners so I was surprised when I sprayed it on my cocktail table to see a thin foam cover my table. It is nothing like a dusting spray, it is thicker and you can feel that you are polishing the furniture. It is hard to really see by the photos here but I noticed a nice shine to my table when I was done.
I really love this wood polish as an added step to my furniture care.
