Here’s a list of some of the recommended products we use that are available for you to use so you can keep your furniture looking its best.
- Liberon Paste Waxes – I like this brand best and have used it for 20+ years! It’s available in many colors from Rings End Home Centers or on the web.
- Goddard’s Furniture Polish – One of the only ones I use and recommend to customers for an easy way to maintain the finish on your furniture. Not as strong and durable as paste wax, but a good “next best” choice. It’s available from Rings End Home Centers and other retailers.
- Brass and metal polishes I like include Goddard’s Brass & Copper Polish, Weiman’s Metal polish and Never-Dull “wadding polish” which is a can of treated cotton wadding you use to polish metals, All three of these are available at Rings End Home Centers and other retailers.
