1. Test. When adding polish to wood furniture, the first step is to remove any excess wax buildup from the last time it was treated. Before you begin, it is a good idea to test the remover first. After wiping the surface down with a dry cloth, dampen a rag with wax remover and test a small area of the wood you will be treating. Let the test spot fully dry to make sure there are no adverse affects to the furniture's surface before continuing.
Even your oldest piece of wood furniture can look like new if you take the time to read these cleaning tips on how to properly polish your wooden furniture.
Maintaining the natural texture and shine of wooden surfaces is not as easy as you think it is. Wood sealants and polishes protect wood from moisture, direct sunlight, heat, dry air and burrowing insects. Commercially available wood sealants and polishes contain toxic chemicals that can cause allergies. Besides, you may have to buy them in bulk even if you need very less quantity to cover a small surface area.
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.
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.

Great recipe. I’ve just polished a table, and, as you suggested, then felt the need to polish everything wooden in my house. All shiny and gorgeous, thank you. I was hoping to post some photos but that doesn’t seem to work, so you will just have to imagine my glowing timber 🙂

It is soooo grounding and relaxing to polish wood with your fingers. Almost like hugging a tree, which I did yesterday. Me and 22 fifth graders hugged and touched oodles of trees before an outdoor art lesson where we sketched trees. I felt so grounded the rest of the day.
