The problem with refinishing

With antique furniture especially, much of it's value is in the original finish and patina ... removing the finish is like trying to increase the value of a silver-plated tea service by removing the tarnished silver plating! Often, the value of antique furniture is actually REDUCED after refinishing ... Wood Elixir restores the ORIGINAL finish.
Even for modern furniture, refinishing is expensive, time consuming and messy. Wood Elixir often solves furniture finish problems for just pennies worth of product, with a simple wipe on, wait, and wipe off process.

Much more than just a powerful cleaner

While Wood Elixir is a powerful cleaner, it also penetrates the finish to help solve many serious furniture finish problems. Wood Elixir will even re-amalgamate and bond the dried, flaking finish found on some antique furniture. Dr. Woodwell Wood Elixir also cleans painted tin toys, decals and transfers, and combination items (i.e. wood, metal, leather). In fact, many "furniture cleaners" on the market today leave behind harmful build-up over time ... some even use silicone!

"I recently inherited several pieces of antique furniture. One piece in particular, a four post bed, was covered in mildew. Without giving further thought Lysol was applied. OOOPPPS! It is for mold and mildew but not mold and mildew on wood. Within seconds white stains appeared on the dark wood bed. I ran to the cleaning cabinet to see what I had to fix the problem. I tried 2 different brands of furniture polish, water and even a wood enhancer but my stains weren't going anywhere.

I was sooooo embarrassed that I tried to cover up the problem with a quilt but the stains were too large to hide! My stomach hurt and my heart ached.

Then, I figured what the heck; I'll try to find a solution on the Internet. I went to a search engine and typed in wood restoration. Dr. Woodwell's Elixir site was the most economical and had the easiest application. I have to admit, for such a low price, easy application and fear of an Internet scam, I was VERY skeptical. I bought the product a hoped that I hadn't been taken for a ride.

A week later the product arrived. I was so excited and yet pessimistic. I rushed to the room with my antique bed and opened the package, read the simple steps and began to apply the product. It only took a few seconds for the stain to start disappearing! Within 20 minutes I opened the package, followed the SIMPLE & EASY directions and cleaned everything up. WOW! I was so impressed!"

"I noticed that the seat of one of the (bistro) chairs was badly scratched in several places ... being an awful perfectionist, I'd already sent back several chairs because of imperfections, and wasn't about to do it again. So I grabbed my (your!) Elixir. Voila! Perfection! And absolutely immediately; I'd merely sprayed the stuff on, and the scratches were gone - no touching of any kind necessary! I can't thank you enough."
