I have an old dining room set (26 yrs old) that I would like to bring out the finish on, or renew it with the least amount of work or bother. Is there maybe something that I could rub on with a cloth that wouldn't require a protective finish afterward? Thanks to all who respond.

Zap Professional Wood Restorer is great for that. It can be purchased online.
Use lemon oil, I found it in Wal-mart. I apply a thin cover to my dining room table every couple of months. I let it soak in awhile, maybe a half-hour or so. I then wipe it down with a clean cotton cloth. Wood can dry out and this nourishes and protects the wood. Use the oil sparingly, a little goes a long way.

I tried something recently that I wanted to share. I may have gotten the tip here or perhaps it was somewhere else online.
