    Guardsman furniture polish. The only product out thre that is totally safe for cleaning I recommend.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I'll have to look into that. Where do you get it? I have long used Kramer's Furniture Restorer on my guns but lately it has been leaving a sticky coating and that is unacceptable. Need pitch the two (expensive) bottles I have and switch to something else.

    Kramer's most likely has Ammonia in it. You can order Guardsman on line.

    My wife has used only Guardman's for years (decades!). It was the polish that was used at all of the furniture stores she worked at (Ethan Allen, Macy, etc.). She gets it at Bed, Bath & Beyond now.

    A quick Googling also shows that it's sold at all sorts of local places...Ace Hardware, Target, Lowe's, and even Bed Bath and Beyond. (I'm guessing Frank doesn't spend a lot of time at BB&B.)

    Had to read this twice. At first I thought you said "in" not "at". You would have been mistaken.
