Imagine my surprise when I read an article published by Eichler Homes about restoring Mahogany Wood Paneling with the Touch of Oranges Wood Cleaner and Touch of Beeswax Wood Preserver!
First let me explain who Eichler Home, between 1949 and 1966, Joseph Eichler's company, Eichler Homes, built over 11,000 homes in nine communities in Northern California and homes in three communities in Southern California.These homes were famous for their Mahogany Wood Paneling., most of the homes had this paneling installed throughout the majority of the home.
These home owners of today, still with these Eichler Homes, needed desperately to clean, revitalize and preserve the finishes, to their amazement, using these great products and simple steps, the paneling looked like the day it was installed 60 years ago.
1st Step: Cleaning Wood Paneling, use the Touch of Oranges Wood Cleaner is remove any excess dirt, grime, old aerosols, products that have been used over the years on the paneling. Use a clean Terry Cloth Towel to wipe off any oil.
2nd Step: Apply the Touch of Beeswax Wood Preserver to the paneling, if you can let this set on the paneling overnight, this formula has the ability to feed into the wood up to ¼ inch! We are talking really preserving the wood.
3rd Step: Come back and wipe off any excess oil that remains, use a clean Terry Cloth Towel to absorb oil. The paneling will be clean, preserved and have a beautiful luster to the finish. Repeat these steps on Cleaning Wood Paneling about every couple of years.
Note: I have found that I could do the same process on Cleaning my Kitchen Cabinets, Exterior Doors, Water Damage on Bathroom Cabinets and my fine furniture once a year.
Use the Touch Of Oranges and Touch Of Beeswax on all your fine wood. Dry and Damaged wood can look like new once cleaned and sealed with beeswax.
If you are really looking to clean and revitalize old wood furniture and antiques, what you need is the best orange wood cleaner on the market. Touch Of Oranges has a unique formula that penetrates the wood surface and pull years of grime and buildup from deep within the wood.
The most effective way to use the product is to combine the wood cleaner spray with 0000 steel wool. This allows you to get deep in the grains of the wood where the dirt and buildup settle.
Not only are these brushes great for auto use, they are awesome around the house. Say you spill red wine on the carpet and you are able to scrub away most of the stain. That is where the drill brushes come in.
Spray the area down with some spot cleaner (Husky Spot Cleaner) I have found to be the most effective. Next attach the drill brush to your cordless drill. Slowly engage the drill on a low speed then increase the speed.
Keep the stained area rather moist while using the drill.
I have been staring at my Hawaiian wood chess table for the past year looking at how dry it is and slowly watch it look dryer and dryer. Some of wood furniture in the house I can look right past and not take a second look. There is something about this piece that makes me look twice.
It is a piece that I want to protect and preserve for years to come. The question is how do I Clean and protect my wood furniture so that it will last the test of time and grandkids.
