Cleaning/Restoring Wood Trim & Cabinets


The wood trim/cabinets in my house look good, but I'd like for them to look really good and have a "new/clean" look to them. The house was built in 1996, so everything is in pretty good shape, but there are little scratches here and there.

When I go over it with Old English, it looks great. All of the little scratches disappear and it has a nice shine to it. A day or two later, once it dries, some of the scratches appear again.

Does anyone here have any recommendations on what to use to keep the trim/cabinets looking good once the product dries?

Cleaning/Restoring Wood Trim & Cabinets


After using the scratch cover, I find a nice thick coat of Pledge helps keep it looking nice for a while
Do not fear the "ugly waxy build-up" (like in the old advertisements...lol)
You want tons of "waxy build-up"
Spray it good and wipe off the extra

Mmmm...shiny
