Guardsman Purifying Wood Cleaner is tough enough to remove grime and residues left by food, grease, and other furniture sprays. Enhance and preserve wood’s natural beauty with Guardsman Purifying Wood Polishes. Guardsman polishes contain no waxes, abrasives or silicones and leave no greasy film or build-up. Keep dust at bay with Guardsman Ultimate Dusting Cloth. It grabs and traps dust quickly, a spray-less application that won’t scratch your furniture!

Using Guardsman Purifying Wood Cleaner

  • Shake bottle and dampen sponge with cleaner
  • Wipe in the direction of the wood grain


It is best to trap and remove as much dust as possible before applying furniture polish. As when you apply a dusting spray or polish directly to a dusty surface, dry abrasive particles transform into liquid sandpaper


Using Guardsman Purifying Wood Polish:

  • Shake can and spray onto a clean, soft cotton cloth.
  • Wipe in the direction of the wood grain


Always dust before applying wood furniture polish


Using Guardsman Ultimate Dusting Cloth:

  • Fold the cloth in half
  • Wipe in the direction of the wood grain
  • When cloth is completely soiled, hand wash it in lukewarm water with mild detergent and air dry


  • For a quick and simple way to pick up pet hair and dirt, place the cloth under a sweeper and glide it across wood or laminate floors
  • Ultimate Dusting Cloth is great for removing cobwebs also
  • Use on prized collectibles such as the family piano and accessories
  • Dust can damage your leather upholstered furniture so make sure you dust it regularly
