Best Type of Furniture Polish

Tips to Get the Most From Your Furniture Polish
Spray or oil your microfiber cloth and use that to dust/polish. Spraying, squirting or pouring furniture polish directly on wood can cause uneven distribution. It can also cause overspray getting the furniture polish on non-wood related fabrics like glass and leather or your carpet. 
Polish a piece of wood that is inconspicuous first. Like if it’s your kitchen cabinets, do it on the inside of your kitchen cabinet and see how it reacts and how it responds, and maybe try it for a week or two. See what it looks like after a week or two before you actually do the fronts of all your cabinets. Then if works out fine and there’s no problem or whatever, then you can go ahead and do the outsides of your cabinets or your wood furniture or whatever.
Always want to follow the manufacturer’s directions on the outside of the container. Different products various reactions and necessary dwell times to get the best results.
Dedicate a cloth to dark wood and a cloth for light wood. Keep your colored furniture polish consistent on those two cloths. This way when you come across a nick or ding in some wood furniture, you can just rub your dedicated cloth over it and fill in the gaps.
