There is endless advice online about how to polish your timber cabinets and furniture to maintain their shine. What that advice doesn’t take into consideration is the future of your furniture. Here is our tip how to polish timber the right way.

Store-bought Furniture Polish

As professional polishers, we constantly see timber furniture that has been repeatedly cleaned with silicone or wax based polishes, such as Mr. Sheen. These polishes are readily available at local stores. They are safe to use on your timber, but unwise if you ever plan to paint or refinish it in the future.


Store-bought furniture polishes cause silicone or wax buildup on timber. They create surfaces that must be stripped to be refinished. This adds another step in the refinishing process that could be avoided. To avoid this stubborn build-up, we recommend using a product called Spray Glow.

What is Spray Glow?

Spray Glow is a lightly perfumed, silicone free furniture polish which has been formulated to clean and protect both lacquered and unlacquered timber articles. Spray Glow is fully recoatable, surfaces do not have to be stripped back prior to recoating. Spray Glow is suitable for cleaning and protecting any low gloss surface including laminated bench tops and cupboards.

Why Do We Care?

This is not a paid endorsement of Spray Glow. We don’t make any money by recommending the product. However better than that, we get to charge less for our service if we don’t have to strip back silicone build-up on timber surfaces. That saves us time and saves you money. It’s a win-win situation.

The only catch is that Spray Glow is not available at local retail outlets. If you’re interested in it, give us a call and we’ll order some for you or contact your local cabinet maker or polisher in your area.

      Hi Michelle,

      It will depend where you are located. If you are in Perth feel free to give us a call on 08 9303 2176 and we can arrange to order some for you. If you’re not located in Perth you will need to get in touch with a local cabinet maker or polish shop so they can order it for you.
