So you wont notice it much on your newer furniture especially if you use lemon oil on it. But using it on a 70+ year old black desk that had layers and layers of pledge and other waxy build up. I discovered a beautiful cherry desk. Be sure to spray leave it on for a little while and then wipe, use some elbow. If your wood gets a white cloud to it, it means the spray has penetrated under the wax and your goal is to keep removing were the white is the thickest. I did not take a before photo, these are in process photos, I need another bottle.Yes I did have a water ring on top and after taking that off another couple layers I noticed a water ring that must have been on the other side. Its like peeling back years of gunk. It is a lot of work. The sprayer suck, I just poured it on thick and let it sit for maybe 15 min, it will be sticky and colored on your towels until l you get down to the bare finish. It did not take off the cherry stain, that was my goal, so no sanding and re staining required.
Worked beautifully on my cherry cabinets--when done, the cabinets had a nice smooth, clean feel, and shine, vs. a waxy sheen that leaves fingerprint marks on when touched.
i used it along with the scratch remover and along with a brand called Rejuvenate and rejuvenate markers to cover up big issues...using all of this made my 30 year old, solid cherry wood kitchen cabinets shine and look better than new I do not think this is a stand alone product, but it has taken off sticky and smear marks, where others could not, and also left a clean new like finish... I usually also finish the cleaning with Orange Glow wood furniture cleaner/polish. I do not think there is any one product that can do it all, but I really like the results I get with the use of this Dutch Glow Wood milk. I do not see as good of results without it....
