It's essential to brush up woody furniture at one time a year. But it's frequently hard to determine what type of polish to apply on wooden furniture. The primary concern is whether the polish you apply will harm the wooden furniture. Most often the producers don't reveal the chemical components of polishes. And these components are altered without notice. These components might harm wooden furniture. Polishes are available in the market in 3 forms, aerosol or sprayer, liquid and semisolid. Here are given a brief description of each type and its advantages and disadvantages. Spray Polishes or Aerosols •Although they're the most convenient polishes they're the most detrimental. They harm wooden furniture because they've silicone polymer oils and additional contaminations as their ingredients. •Some sprays harm varnishes and lacquers. Liquid Polishes •These are easy to apply also. They're available in 2 types emulsion polishes and oil type polishes. •Emulsion polishes are waxes, oils and organic dissolvers in a water solution so that it may be used easily on the furniture. •Emulsion polishes clean exceedingly well and leave a nice shine on the wooden surface. But this effect lives only until the liquid dries out. •Oil polishes come in 2 types’ nondrying oils and drying oils. Oil polishes may be applied as the final finish. •Nondrying oils like paraffin, lemon oil and mineral are less disadvantageous than drying out oils. Some oils stay on the surface it has been applied. As a result dust and other contaminants stick to the wet oil surface. •Drying oils like linseed oil and walnut oil dry on the wooden surface by oxidation. This is a chemical reaction and over a period of time is difficult to dispatch. Semisolid Polishes •These polishes are the finest because the harm to the wooden surface is minimum. •They're commercially known as "Paste Waxes" and are very static and don't stimulate problems suchlike the other type of waxes. •Furniture conservators and other furniture experts apply paste waxes. •Using this polish involves numerous physical labor. Buffing wax is a straining job and better the quality of wax, greater the amount of buffing needed. The extra effort is worth it as it's advantageous for the furniture. •Since this polish is stable and long-lasting it needs to be used infrequently. Wax polish areas that are applied very often once or twice a year and areas such as the legs of tables and chairs, cabinets etc may be brushed up once in 3 or 4 years. •Wax shouldn't be used frequently since there will be a build up of wax that will appear untempting on a woody surface.
