Wood still needs routine care, despite its hard surface. Without regular cleaning and polishing, wood surfaces become dry and cracked. Ultimately, surfaces ruin at a faster pace. Furniture polish helps to prevent damage to wood surfaces, such as butcher-block counter tops, end tables and kitchen counter tops. However, consumers are more aware of the dangerous affects of chemicals and additives in certain furniture polishes. As a result, more people choose to use natural-based polishes. The best natural-furniture polishes are pesticide- and chemical-free, and created with ingredients from nature, such as lemons, oranges and olives.
