Be careful about what products that you put onto your furniture. Some of them contain silicon and that reacts with the lacquer when the piece is being restored. The photo shows what that reaction is. It can be over come most of the time, but it does entail a lot of extra work. The main products on the market are "Pledge" and "Mr Sheen". So please do not use these products on your furniture
Use instead a damp sponge or a cloth impregnated with a quality oil for dusting. The cloth should be just damp so that it leave a tiny trace of oil on you fingers. When you dust with the cloth the dust will adhere to the cloth and tiny trace of oil is left. This is all the oil your furniture needs. Too little is far better than too much oil.
