Here are a few tips for using wood polish on your wood furniture. First, I prefer ecofriendly polishes for many reasons. One I like is Method’s Daily Wood Polish. It is not a high gloss polish but it does provide some shine. Second, you should avoid microfiber cloths–they can finely scratch good woods. Stick to a soft cotton cloth. An old t-shirt will do. Finally, rub in the direction of the grain for best absorption. Good luck! If you have a lot of wood, why not show it off!
