Why not refinish?

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 funiture is actually REDUCED after refinishing ... Wood Elixir restores the ORIGINAL finish.

So, this is a 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 reamalgamate 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!

How does it work?

Simply "wipe on, wait a moment, then wipe off" is usually all that's needed! Full directions can be viewed by clicking here. (Adobe Acrobat required - Download it for free here.)

"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."

"I tried [Wood Elixir] on my kitchen cabinets, that we were going to replace and WOW! They improved so much we are going to do all the kitchen cabinets with the product rather that replace them. Do you offer the product in a bigger size?"

White water marks have ruined this dining room table. In the past, the expense or mess of refinishing would have been the only option.
Now, a single application of Wood Elixir restores the water damage, bringing back the original beauty - in just one step!
Water damage on this dining table is quickly restored by brushing on Wood Elixir, waiting a few minutes, then buffing with a clean cloth.

"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!"
