Scott’s Liquid Gold – It’s Good for Your Wood!


Scott's Liquid Gold
The Scott’s Liquid Gold Company had a very humble beginning in 1951.  After purchasing the formula for $350, Ida Goldstein and her sons mixed batches of  the product in their garage and then sold it door to door.  Over the years, the company has grown tremendously.  The product line has expanded, but Scott's items are all still made and distributed in the United States of America.  The company is dedicated to both high quality and reasonable prices.

This year Scott’s brand celebrates it’s 60th year as a household favorite!

One of the few chores I actually enjoyed doing as a child was polishing the wood furniture.  Maybe I was inspired by this ad!

When I had the chance to do a review of Scott’s Liquid Gold products, it was a very glad reunion.  It’s always good to see an old friend, isn't it?

I thought I would start with my boys’ bedroom furniture .   Their set is a very sturdy wooden one, perfect for boys.  Even so, it gets well worn from their boyish behavior.

I began with their desk.  This is what it looked like before I began.

Notice the nicks, scratches, pen marks, and overall ickiness!!
I got out the aerosol wood cleaner and preservative, sprayed some on a soft cloth and got to work.

The wood cleaner is available in lemon or almond scent.  I had a can of almond, and the scent is very appealing.  It got the boys’ attention immediately and they came to see what it was that smelled so nice!

Here is what the same desk looked like after only one application of Scott’s!

It did a very nice job on the bunk beds, dressers, and chairs, too!

I was also able to try some Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Wash on our floors.  This comes in both a concentrated and s a ready to use formula.  I had the concentrate.

It is a wonderful product for wood floors, but what I didn't know is that, according to the package, it can also be used on simulated wood, linoleum, painted surfaces, porcelain, vinyl, chrome, brass and fiberglass, too.  It can be used not only on floors, but on moldings, paneling, cabinets, and any other woodwork in the house.

This cleanser is not oily or soapy and it leaves a nice fresh scent behind, with no build up, streaking or residue.  It is very light and clean formula.
