I've always used Liquid Gold in the past for cleaning and shine. Now, it just sinks in and disappears, no shine, and the streaks still show. I called Ethan Allen, maker of the dining room table. They told me to wash it with a mild solution of Ivory soap, rinse it, and dry it. I did that and it's still awful. Any help out there?
Take some alcohol on cotton rag and rub small area. See if that pulls the residue. If it does do a larger section. Work using clean rags.
I would bet the liquid gold left a residue and the oil soap is lifting it out of the wood. You could keep using the oil soap or contact the liquid gold company to see what they recommend to get the residue off. My dad refinished furniture and he always told me to never use furniture polish or liquid gold because of residue.
