Lacquer furniture is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, and many fans are looking for older pieces to add to their home. Some of these may be a little worse for wear. This method will remove those scratches and return lacquer furniture to its original glossy shine.
Apply auto wax precleaner to the scratched area with a rag, and clean it thoroughly.
With a clean cloth, apply Menzerna Intensive polish. Rub it firmly into the scratched area, allow it to dry, and then buff it with a clean, dry cloth.
Take another clean cloth, and apply the Menzerna Intensive paste. Rub in and buff off as in Step 2.
Finally, apply Menzerna Intensive polish to the area a second time, rubbing and buffing lightly for your final, repaired finish.
For deep scratches that go all the way through the lacquer, consider hiring a professional experienced in working with lacquered furniture. An amateur can sometimes do more harm than good in deep-scratch scenarios.
