My mom was in town this week visiting, and I was asking her about some of the antique furniture I have, and were it came from. Specifically, an oak dresser I have in my bedroom. We both can’t remember WHEN I got it, but we agree we think I was 9 or 10. She does remember WHERE she got it though. There used to be a little antique store right before you enter Berlin on Route 50 in Maryland. I know, I know, that doesn’t mean much to most of you, but that’s as good as it’s going to get.
I plan on giving my dresser to my daughter Quincy, so I want to take good care of it. I was given a package of Guardsman Ultimate Dusting Cloths to try, and I’ve really liked them. They help me clean up my dresser without using any chemicals that might invariably damage the finish or worse, have fumes not safe for my children or kitty. The Ultimate Dusting Cloths make it really easy to give my oak dresser a quick swipe when it gets dusty, and I love that the clothes are reusable – no waste is important to me!
Ultimate Dusting Cloths – Dusting just got easier with Guardsman’s sprayless and odorless cloth. The 100% cotton flannel, lint-free cloths are specially treated to be tough enough to trap dust to remove allergens, yet gentle enough for scratch-free results. Each cloth is hand washable and reusable for added convenience. Available in three sizes: single-cloth, 5-cloth and 12-cloth packs. Retail price: $2.99-$19.99
Guardsman recently launched a “Stop Cleaning. Start Caring” campaign with Guardsman and design star Tracy Hutston. I love that is a new way to look at caring for your traditional furniture – not necessarily what your grandmother taught you! As a kick off for this campaign, Guardsman is donating $25,000 to Habitat for Humanity!!
Do you have a favorite furniture story? Be sure to share it on Guardsman.com and Tracy Hutson will select one lucky winner to receive a personal design session in their home. This includes a $1500 room re-accessorizing and shopping experience, plus a suite of Guardsman products! How AMAZING is that!??!?
I am really enjoying my new dusting clothes, and am excited to try them on our other wood furniture… now if only mom would send me my antique dining room table that JFK once had dinner at (true story) that’s currently in HER living room so I can use my new Ultimate Dusting Clothes on THAT!
