Guardsman Furniture Care Products Review
The other day I received a cool goody bag full of Guardsman cleaning products. Okay, I hate cleaning but it's something I try to do as much as possible because I hate a dirty house more than I hate cleaning.
The goody bag was filled with some cool Guardsman products that included leather protector, leather cleaner, several polishes, dusting cloths and furniture markers.
I am always looking for new products to try. I hate cleaning but it is something that I have to do so when I do it, I want to have the right products.
Well, I have to be honest and say I had never heard of Guardsman products but I could not be happier that I know about them.
The first product I tried was the Furniture Touch Up Marker. You see, we have this very nice wood dining room set in our home. It was beautiful. I say was because after we got our cats 15 years ago, they have managed to wreck the table and several chair legs. I love them but they did a number on the table.
I have tried other markers and fillers and none seemed to work. These did quite a nice job on the deep scratches made by my kitties. I then used the furniture polish on the table and it looked quite good. I mean, if you get up real close you will see the scratches but, overall, it looked very natural. I need to try the liquid touch up on the chair legs.
I tried the water ring remover and while it worked, I could still see a watermark left on the table but all people, my mother. Bad mom! The furniture polish worked great as well.
My favorite products were the leather protector and the leather cleaner. We have a beautiful leather sofa in the living room but it is hard to keep clean and some cleaners just don't work on real leather. I have tried several products and I am always afraid I will ruin the leather with the wrong ones.
The leather cleaner worked well. Maybe too well since it picked up all sorts of grime. I then put some of the leather protector on the sofa and it looks really nice! Overall, I really liked these products and would recommend them especially if you need to clean leather. They worked so well!
