Our neighbor back in my birth country has a furniture business. I learned a lot from him on how to take care of your wood furniture. He said keeping wood furniture clean should require a minimum amount of care, asserting that the oil or lacquer finish normally used on furniture protects the wood by sealing. He added that he original finish itself needs a protective layer, like using a wax, and it should be renewed periodically. The wax was supposed to feed the wood and help protect it. He mentioned to me which wax is good for wood, but I am here in the US of A now, and I haven’t seen that product here.
Anyway, there are several wax products at the local store, and all of them claimed that they have the best wax, or the best paste wax for wood furniture. I have tried some of them, and it wasn't bad anyway. Some were shiny after applying, and some were not. So, I just remembered which one has a shiny effect.
