Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner & Preservative Review

I know that everyone has heard of Scott's Liquid Gold Furniture Cleaner and Preservative and this is my first time ever reviewing them, so I am very excited! I have some wood and it's several different shades of color which means some of it shows up better than the lighter wood which can hide the dust for a little while anyway. 
I grabbed this video off of Scott's site so that you can hear all the technical information and all the good stuff, too!
I did not know that they actually had several other products also in addition to the Wood Cleaner, they have Dust n Go,  Wood Wash Concentrate, Pourable Wood Cleaner & Preservative, Pourable Wood Cleaner & Preservative and Wood Wash Ready-to-Use.
Here is the one that I got to review:
This is the new size and new look of their old Liquid Gold. I don't remember what the other size was but this one is now 10 oz. but still has the same Almond Scent as the original did. Also, they have the Time-tested organic oil formula, safely cleans, shines, dusts, restores, & preserves all natural or unfinished wood. Leaves no residue build-up. Contains no wax or silicones. So, we are getting all of those benefits plus a bigger size!
Now, I could have sat here and try to re-word all of this but I don't see any need to do that and I am also stating that I got this from Liquid Gold's site regarding what this awesome Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner and Preservative:
  • Time-tested organic oil formula wood cleaner
  • Safely cleans, shines and dusts wood
  • For use on all natural finished or unfinished wood surfaces
  • Original almond fragrance
  • Restores and enhances wood's natural color, grain and luster
  • Repels dust
  • Removes light wax buildups
  • Deep cleans new & antique wood furniture, cabinets, doors, paneling & woodwork
  • Replenishes wood's moisture, to protect against cracking, warping and fading
  • Brings out the true color of wood, lessening the appearance of nicks and scratches
  • Richens wood's tone by bringing back its natural color
  • Leaves no residue buildup
  • Maintains and preserves wood's beauty and prolongs its life

  • Contains no wax, silicone, nuts or nut byproducts
  • Great for use as a stainless steel cleaner - restores shine; removes fingerprints, smudges and water spots; won't scratch surface. Can be used on refrigerators, sinks, dishwashers, oven fronts and fixtures
Wow, that was truly a mouthful and I sure am glad I did not have to type this myself with the way my hands are hurting. I have pushed myself today to get as many reviews/giveaways done before I had to stop and I think I am just about there. And that darn heartburn is back! I was so hoping I would have a good day but at least I did get some finished.
I did learn this on one of the other pages, not the main one, and realized I really did not know much about how wood polishes and wood sprays or wood cleaners work. Goes to show just when you think you might know it all, something pops up and you then realize you don't know as much as you thought.

Like this for example:
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 & Preservative penetrates into the pores of the wood to treat wood and replace lost moisture.
Over the years, we have heard the following ways that our consumers have discovered for using Scott's Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner & Preservative:
  • As a lubricant for squeaky hinges, household fans, bicycle chains, swivel chairs, nuts and bolts, sliding door tracks and garden hand tools
  • To clean and soften the leather on ball mitts and hiking boots, luggage, saddles, old/antique books and dashboards
  • To clean and prevent rust on metal and wood garden and farm hand tools
  • To clean and restore:
    • Window screens, stained glass, unpainted wood or metal window blinds, metal tools
    • Plexiglas™, metal or plastic office equipment (unpainted)
    • Stickers from bumpers, window, appliances, etc.
    • Stainless steel, silver, copper, chrome, wrought iron and brass items (wash thoroughly before using)
    • Golf irons, gun stocks
    • Road tar from cars
    • Soap scum from shower doors and tiles (helps prevent buildup)
    • Plastic pots used in garden (outside surface only)

Now, we know that it does more than just clean our wood! I am gonna have to print this page out and keep it handy for when I might need some of these things repaired or cleaned.

Oh, and one last thing, I did not know that they had something called Touch of Scent, did you?
