Interior cabinet wood oil recommended

We have cherry cabinets in our Affinity and have been using lemon oil but it just does not have the staying power and the wood looks as if it needs oiled again in a very short time- any suggestions so keep this wood so that the oil penetrates and maintains the beautiful cabinets?

I would not use oil on the cabinets. Some of the oils can flake the finish especially if it has a lacquer finish. I found that a product called Guardsman Furniture Polish and/or Guardsman Furniture Cleaner are excellent cleaners and polishes. They are available on the web from this company and are about $3 a can for a 12.5 oz.

We have been using Scott's Liguid Gold spray on our cherry cabinets and it seems to really work well. We looked for the stuff that CC recommended in a technical document I found on the web...it was called 'Panel Magic.' We never could find it.

You may want to try Howards Feed and Wax, bee's wax. Purchase at the home depot, but spray is easier.

Most of those build up over time.

Bree does not, you rub it in with 0000 steel wool, all the old accumulations are picked up in the wool, amazing difference.

A few months ago I used it on a 1860 piece of furniture.....wow!!!!

totally different like new

We use Orange GLO wood furniture clean and polish spray for our cabinets and furniture and they still look like new. For a 10 year old coach you would never know it to look at it and that's a good thing.

We have used Orange Oil on our Walnut cabinets for 12 years. Works fine applied twice per year.

Howard's works well also in our experience.

Old English Furniture Oil. Wipe it on, let it sit for a while and wipe off the excess.

#1 Double check what the manufacturer suggests
#2 If they don't have a product then I X3 the Scotts Liquid Goal suggestion.
