Kramer's Best Antique Improver available at our store in Waynesville
What does it do?
First of all, it CLEANS. Kramer's Best Antique Improver is the ideal way to clean off the surface build-up found on so many of the old pieces — fingerprints, kitchen cooking grease, furnace residue, wood and coal smoke, lamp soot, as well as wax build-up and furniture polish residue. It does this gently — reconditioning, but not damaging, the original finish as it cleans. As well as your antique furniture, Antique Improver effectively cleans and restores woodwork, paneling, doors (inside and out), floors, window sills, kitchen cupboards and much, much more.
As it cleans, it RECONDITIONS both the FINISH and the WOOD. As shown on this old silverware chest lid and the sewing machine top, a light wipe of Improver cleans, and at the same time, reconditions the existing finish. The old natural finishes — paint, varnish, lacquer, shellac — dry out over time. This dryness may cause shrinking, cracking, flaking of the finish. Kramer's Best Antique Improver contains many of the same oils used in the old finishes. It replaces the oils in the finish, goes through the finish into the wood, reversing the dryness of the wood, while at the same time re-bonding and stabilizing both the finish and the wood. Dryness is reversed. Color is restored to areas lightened from sun bleaching or from wear and light scratches. White water marks, many times, are reversed. Your piece will look better than you have ever seen it look before.
Even if there is some finish missing — on pieces where time and the elements have done their damage — Kramer's Best Antique Improver reconditions and brings up the wonderful natural color and beauty of the wood. Natural oils are replaced. Areas where some original finish remains may be blended in with the more damaged areas, restoring appearance without affecting integrity of the piece. Antique Improver is an excellent way to reverse damage on areas exposed to constant steam and moisture or extreme temperature and humidity changes, such as window sills, around window panes, kitchen or bathroom cabinets, entrance doors, and much, much more. Replacing the natural oils brings up more natural color and beauty than you would have thought possible. Using Antique Improver occasionally for maintenance prevents dryness, maintains rich color and patina and PRESERVES and PROTECTS the wood in your home from future permanent damage.
