CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE TIPS
At Asian Tide, we recommend the use of Howard Products for cleaning, repairing and maintaining your furniture. We stock a range of Howard Products, the most popular being Howard's Feed N Wax, Orange Oil and Restor-A-Finish. Please see below some information regarding these products:
"Use Howard Feed-N-Wax to prevent drying and cracking while preserving the wood finish. Feed-N-Wax is a special blend of beeswax, carnauba wax, and orange oil. It enhances the natural beauty and depth of grain in finished and unfinished wood, especially oak.
Use Feed-N-Wax every month or so to maintain the natural beauty of your wood finish. Polish all wood surfaces to a soft luster while leaving a protective coating of beeswax and carnauba wax."
"For over 20 years, Howard Orange Oil Furniture Polish has been using the cleaning power of real orange oil to gently clean and polish without drying out the wood finish. Natural "orange essence oil" is derived from the rind of the orange and has excellent cleaning properties. This naturally occurring cleaner replaces the need for a lot of harsh chemicals.
Howard Orange Oil is different from "wood cleaners," in that it is safe to use on antiques and even unfinished woods. It is ideal for unfinished as well as oiled woods like teak. It enhances the depth, tone, and natural beauty of the wood grain while preventing drying and cracking. Howard Orange Oil contains no silicone or linseed oils."
"Restor-A-Finish is a unique finish-penetrating formula that restores the original color and luster to your finish while blending out the blemishes and minor scratches. Restor-A-Finish restores the finish in one step - without removing any of the existing finish."
