Cleaning Varnished Wood

October 19, 2010

If you steep old tea leaves in water for half an hour and strain the liquid, the tea is excellent for cleaning varnished woodwork. Put a little on a damp flannel and rub the wood lightly to get rid of finger marks and that dull, gummy look. The same infusion also brightens mirrors and windowpanes.

Can I use "Old English" on varnish applied on a boat? Will it simply clean the varnish, or will it hurt the finish in any way?

I don't know about the "Old English", but my neighbor has a boat with varnished wood, and uses "Murphy's Oil Soap".
