Cleaning white kitchen appliances / car bodywork, etc.

Did you know that Heritage Woodcare is excellent at cleaning white kitchen goods, car bodywork and similar finishes?

In your kitchen, there is no need to change products and cloths. You prepare your cloth in the usual way i.e. give your bottle a thorough shake, pour some into a container, take any clean, soft and dry cloth, soak it in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out till it is damp dry, pour any remaining polish back into your bottle and you are now ready.

Using your Heritage Woodcare is very easy as all you do is wipe! On your wood wipe in the direction of the grain for best results. If your wood goes streaky it indicates more than one application is needed, otherwise there is no need to buff up!

Continue to use the same cloth (if it is not too dirty) on your washing machine, dishwasher, etc. Heritage Woodcare is oil based so, in addition to cleaning your white goods, it leaves a protective finish.

For your car, wash in the usual way to remove grit, etc. that will scratch your bodywork, dry the car off (using a Super Shammy - contact us for details!) prepare your cloth as above and just wipe in circular motions ensuring you polish all the bodywork. The real benefit of using Heritage is that there is no need to buff up!

How do I keep my kitchen clean and greasefree?

Continuing my examination of Heritage Woodcare (sometimes known as Celtic Woodcare) and having told you how it is ideal for use on your furniture with it being able to clean ( including the removal of grease and grime, nicotine buildup, ring marks, etc.) and polish at the same time I will now tell you about using it in your kitchen.

Here it will remove all the buildup of grease and water marks particularly. Every time we cook we are releasing water and grease into the atmosphere. This then settles on work surfaces, cupboards, cooker hoods, even the floor. Regular washing of the floor keeps them clean and grease free, thus safe to walk on.However, our cooker hoods don't necessarily get this regular washing and are prone to getting buildups of grease. This then hardens and can sometimes be difficult to remove. Using your Heritage can help.

When preparing your cloth (see my previous post) having squeezed your cloth cloth out, do not ring it out but leave it reasonably damp, wipe over the cooker hood last thing at night. Do this for about a week and the oils in your Heritage will gradually penetrate the dried on grease meaning you will eventually just wipe it off.

Heritage Woodcare is also ideal for wiping over your cupboards, work surfaces, etc. Regular use will keep these clean and grease free and prevent the buildup of water marks,etc. thus keeping your kitchen looking like new

Made in their Dublin facility by Drigate Products and based on a nineteenth century secret formula known only by the then grandmasters of the furniture crafts, Heritage Woodcare has been updated for modern products. The keen rivalry between these skilled craftsmen brought about a constant searching for absolute perfection in the preservstion, cleaning and polishing of wooden furniture.. Many priceless antique pieces seen today give testimony to the success of their skills.Comprehensive research aided by enlightened technology has enabled Drigate Products to produce a polish that gives the same outstanding results in a fraction of the time taken by those skilled craftsmen.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use. Give your bottle a thorough shake, pour some into a container, soak any clean, soft and dry cloth in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out till it is damp dry, return the excess polish to your bottle and you are now ready. All you do now is wipe. Heritage Woodcare takes off all the buildup of silicones, waxes, grease and grime and will also remove most white heat, ring and water marks.

How do I remove nicotine from my chest of drawers?

I am still getting some replies to my post about the cheap oak chest of drawers bought from an antique shop. As I said, the reason it was so cheap was because it came in a house clearance from someone who had been a heavy smoker and the drawers were very dirty and covered in nicotine.

I was asked if Heritage Woodcare would remove all this buildup of nicotine and grime. Heritage Woodcare works by removing all the buildup of silicons, waxes, grease and grime and will also remove most white heat, ring and water marks. It will, therefore, successfully remove all the buildup from the drawers including the nicotine and, in the process, should make them smell a little fresher.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use . Give your bottle a really good shake, pour some into a container, take any soft and clean cloth, soak it in the polish and squeeze and wring the cloth out till it is damp dry. Pour the remaining polish back into your bottle.

You are now ready and all you do now is wipe, possibly more than once, following the direction of the grain . As previously stated, Heritage Woodcare removes all the build up of silicons, waxes , grease and grime and as the nicotine is in the buildup, that will be removed at the same time.

Following my posts about using Heritage Woodcare to remove bitumen I have had some poeple asking me about it and what it does so I thought it would be useful to spend a few posts looking at it.

Heritage Woodcare is a twentyfirst century product based on a tried and tested recipe that is centuries old and was known only by the grand masters of the furniture crafts. The constant striving for perfection in the cleaning,polishing,and preservation of wooden furniture between these rival grandmasters can still be seen today when looking at many priceless antiques and, in order, to get the desired results, these grandmasters would spend hours, sometimes days, working on a single item.Few people today have the time, or the patience, of these grandmasters, so after much research, and backed up by modern technology, this centuries old recipe has been updated to produce Heritage Woodcare. which gives the same outstanding results in a fraction of the time.

Heritage Woodcare is very easy to use. Take your bottle, give it a really good shake and pour some into a container. Take any soft, clean cloth, soak it in the polish, squeeze and wring your cloth out and then pour the polish remaining in your container back into your bottle. You are now ready!To clean and polish your furniture you simply wipe, following the grain of the wood. Heritage Woodcare cleans and polishes your furniture at the same time, taking off the build-up of silicones,waxes,grease and grime restoring your furniture back to its original finish. Heavy build-ups of grease and grime may require more than one application. At the same time it will also renove most white heat marks, ring marks and water marks although again, more than one application may be needed.

How do I remove bitumen / tar from leather?

Following on from my post about removing bitumen from wood flooring, I thought I would tell you how to remove it from leather.

I was demonstrating Heritage Woodcare at a show a while ago and someone told me about his experiences.Apparently he had not long bought a brand new Jaguar with cream leather upholstery and was driving this car through an area where the road had recently been resurfaced. Somehow a piece of grit covered in tar (bitumen) became trapped between his trousers and the car seat covering both in the tar. He went on to say that the trousers were ruined but he had rescued the leather seat by wiping it over with Heritage Woodcare. I thanked him for the information but advised him to wash that particular seat with pure soap and then condition it with Heritage Leathercare.

So, to answer any query about removing bitumen from leather, wipe the leather with a cloth prepared with Heritage Woodcare (see my previous post for instructions on how to prepare your cloth), wash your leather with pure soap (Simple Soap, baby soap, soap flakes, Dreft, etc.), make sure your leather is totally dry, then condition with Heritage Leathercare.

Heritage Woodcare and Heritage Leathercare are both available online, visit Heritage Woodcare can also be obtained from

How do I remove bitumen from my parquet floors.

I have been checking my Google Analytics and by far the most common keyword is bitumen particularly in relation to removing it so I thought I would devote this post to looking at this subject again.

Bitumen/tar is used as an adhesive to stick wood flooring, particularly parquet and similar types of wood flooring. Over time the bitumen seeps up between the joints leaving black marks on the floor.

I had this problem on my own floors.My wife and I decided to replace the carpet in the hall and stairs. I took up the existing carpet myself to make the job easier and cheaper only to find a parquet floor in the hall and I could also see the floor continued into the lounge. (It turned out that the ground floor of our house is concrete and finished with oak parquet flooring). After much persuasion my wife agreed to not replacing the carpet on the understanding that I cleaned the floor and did all the maintenance!

The floor that was revealed was very dirty and appeared to have a lot of black marks (subsequently found to be bitumen) between the wood tiles. After several attempts at sweeping the floor I managed to pick up all the dust. I then got down on my hands and knees (I could in those days!) and used Scotchbrite (a non scratch scourer) soaked in Heritage Woodcare and "scrubbed" the whole floor. I finished up with a floor that looked really clean and had a slight sheen, I was also pleased to note that all the bitumen that had seeped up between the joints had been removed

Now every time I sweep the floor it also restores the sheen and wiping over with my Heritage Woodcare once per month is all that is required to keep my floor looking really good.

Now we can take that one stage further by adding Green Angel Seaweed Powder to the foot bath and really relieving hot, swollen feet.

Green Angel Seaweed Powder and Cellulite

Continuing my theme about Green Angel Seaweed Powder I was recently contacted by a customer asking about using it to "combat" the effects of cellulitis, so I am going to briefly examine Cellulite and how you can get help and relief from this common problem.

According to Wikipaedia, "Cellulite describes a common paraphysiological cosmetic condition that is claimed to occur in most women, where the skin of the lower limbs, abdomen and pelvic region becomes dimpled. Cellulite is a description rather than a physical object" This is a condition then that affects many women who feel it disfigures their appearance. The use of Green Angel Seaweed Powder, in the treatment of cellulite has been found to hve some success.

To use your Green Angel Seaweed Powder, mix one tablespoonful to a loose cream with boiling water. Cool and apply to desired area. Cover with clingfilm and then with a warm towel Leave for a maximum of 20 minutes. Shower with warm water and then with cool water. Drink plenty of cold water, up to 8 glasses per day. Use twice a week for a month.
