Dry air, created by heating and air conditioning, draws moisture out of wood. Unless the moisture is replaced, warping, cracking, shrinking and general loss of color will result. Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative penetrates into the pores of the wood to treat wood and replace lost moisture.
Some frequently asked questions:
What is naturally finished wood?
It wood that has been coated with a finish that allows the natural wood characteristic to show through. Varnish, shellac and lacquer are examples of natural finishes used on wood. Polyurethane is not a natural finish. Polyurethanes do not survive well in contact with most organic solvents. Scott's Liquid Gold is an organic oil formula that contains and organic solvent.
Can Scott's Liquid Gold be used outdoors?
Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative provides the same protection outdoors where drying, bleaching, cracking and warping can be a real problem.
NOTE: We recommend the use of a UV inhibitor. Otherwise, prior sun damage may become very visible. Wood that has been exposed to excessive moisture may darken when Scott's Liquid Gold is used.
Does Scott's Liquid Gold contain silicone?
Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative contains no silicone.
Does Scott's Liquid Gold darken wood?
Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative contains no dyes but the oil penetrates into the pores of wood to restore lost moisture and color. This tends to darken the shade of the wood closer to its original state. Raw wood will sometimes darken 6 to 8 shades but will lighten over time between uses.
Where should the use of Scott's Liquid Gold be avoided?
Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative is not recommended for use on food preparation surfaces or eating utensils, paste wax or polyurethane finishes, brick, fireplaces, painted surfaces, photo finishes, veneer or laminated finishes, bleached or whitewashed wood, compressed or particle board, veneer, parquet flooring, marble or finishes that are deteriorated or damaged (if uncertain, spot test on a hidden area of the wood.)
Why can't I use Scott's Liquid Gold on items that have been finished with polyurethane?
Polyurethanes do not survive well in contact with most organic solvents. Scott's Liquid Gold is an organic oil formula that contains and organic solvent. Not to mention that applying oil-based products to polyurethane can make items oily and even slippery.
Can Scott's Liquid Gold be used to remove wax buildup?
Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative will remove light wax buildups. When applied to previously waxed furniture, the wax will soften, leaving a smeary, cloudy surface.
Apply Scott's Liquid Gold liberally and let stand for several hours before wiping dry. Turn cloth repeatedly, to avoid spreading the softened wax. This process may need to be repeated several times before all of the old waxes are completely removed. When finished, the surface should look clean and feel slightly oily. Once the wax has been completely removed, Scott's Liquid Gold will penetrate the wood to restore lost moisture.
NOTE: If white circles develop you may need to refinish the wood. This occurs when products containing silicone were previously used. For faster results on extremely heavy wax buildups, use a commercial grade wax remover or talk with a wood professional about doing the job for you.
