Asked by: Michael
You would do well to google "treating butcher block" as it will go into detail about treatments on items used for food.

I have a new acacia wood table and would like to apply a product that will keep it from looking weathered. I plan to put a tarp over it, when not in use, but want a product that it will allow it to maintain it's color. Is this a good solution?
Asked by: Robin
We have used this product for the past 15 years or so on fine oak furniture that has no clear coat. Howard's has both orange oil and bees wax, is an excellent preservative, keeps the oak from drying out and looking like new.

How would this be to use on wood floors?
Asked by: 29909
I wouldn't use this product on wood floors. It's too expensive to use on a large expanse. There are other products that are specially formulated for wood flooring. Ask your friendly Home Depot staff person for advice.

I've been painting and staining for over 40 years. This polish has now changed the steps I usually take in wood finishing. For a stain and varnish finish, I apply the stain and allow it to dry. After staining (with a staining sponge), I apply three coats of semi gloss spar varnish (with a staining sponge), allowing twenty four hours between coats. I no longer sand between coats with 220 grit. I sand after the final coat with 220 grit, vacuum, and clean up the dusty surfaces. Finally, I liberally apply one coat of this polish/conditioner (again with a staining sponge), and I let it soak in overnight. The following day, I buff the entire project with paper towels, cleaning up any excess. This process turns out a beautiful, smooth, flawless satin finish that people rave about. The only finish that can equal this result is a spray finish done in a controlled environment (spray booth)! This process is so easy and the results are perfect!!!

Have never used anything on them for fear of a wax buildup or products that would harm the natural wood. But over time, as with anything, they are somewhat dry and needing some attention. Was thrilled when I read and then purchased this product! It does exactly what it says it does and now the wood we have used it on looks new!! Amazing product. Will purchase this again and again. Can't wait to use it on all of our wood pieces!!

I am refinishing some of my oak dining chairs with Howard Restore and just got this wax. I have used it just on a couple spots so far, but you can definitely see the difference!! It deepens and shines the oak color and I am very happy with it!!

It is not the easiest product to use. It requires preparation to assure that wax and oil are both liquid and have a good consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been a long time user of Guardsman wood... I have been a long time user of Guardsman wood care products since the 70’s. However, the last of my giant can of Gaurdsman ran out and I needed something to revitalize and protect my kitchen cabinets. The cabinets are about 10 years old, and have mostly been polished, but not deep cleaned, polished and waxed. Much to my dismay, I couldn’t find Guardsman anywhere close by and I did not want to spend an entire afternoon driving all over the county looking for it. Our nearby Home Depot offered Howard products, when I looked at the ingredients they appeared to be comparable, no silicones, and basically citrus oil and bees and carumba waxes. So I got both the Feed N Wax and the Citrus Shield Paste Wax. I used both on my cupboards, and the Feed N Wax really helped a couple sections that were looking a little dry, brought back the luster. The paste wax was soft, easy to apply and did a great job shining up the cabinets and giving them deeper tonality and luster. The cabinets look brand new. I was curious how the Howard ingredients compared to Guardsman and that became quite interesting. I cannot seem to find anything in the internet with Guardsman ingredients, including the Guardsman website! Howard’s website lists their ingredients online, no digging around to find them. Then I read some customer reviews on Guardsman on other shopping websites, there were numerous comments that Guardsman is no longer the quality product it used to be. So considering Valspar now owns them, and they don’t make it easy to find their ingredients, and several old timers saying it’s not the product it used to be, perhaps I dodged a bullet. Time will tell. For now, the cabinets look fantastic with the Howard polish and wax on them. Will have to see how it stands up over time, but so far I’m happy with the quality of the product and the results.
