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?
