Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home and Wood Care Review

The holidays are here, and many of us are cleaning for the festivities. For us, we are finally getting around to the dressers we just inherited that have been long neglected. They are the perfect testers for our Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home and Woodcare review. We received samples of each to conduct our review. Our opinions are all ours.

My husband’s parents loaded up and moved from Pittsburgh to Florida towards the end of summer. We inherited dressers from my husband’s grandmother, who passed away decades before I met him. The dressers are dry, and their luster has diminished. 

We discussed whether we would refinish them, but my husband elected to keep them as his Nana had, so we moved them in, washed them down with a damp, soapy cloth, and called it a day of moving.

We have talked about cleaning them better from July and August, applying a coat of linseed oil.

Linseed oil is messy, and it requires patience and time.

Something neither of us has found lately.

I suggested that we use Scott’s Liquid Gold when the dressers first arrive.

My mother used it when I was growing up.

I used it when I moved out on my own.

This opportunity to review Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care and a product from their line I had never heard of Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home.

Today was the day.

I carved some time out between virtual school, blogging, and my routine to commit to a review.

Here is the dresser.

I’m not going even to make an excuse for the stuff around it. It is what it is, People.

The foaming formula stays where you put it while leaving a clean and pleasant grapefruit aroma.

Scott’s Liquid Gold has been trusted to care for natural wood since 1951. Now you can trust them to care for everything else.

Proudly made in the USA.

My Thoughts:

I sprayed the Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home on the dresser.

It’s a foam that stays where it’s sprayed.

This being said, it’s a foam, and it sprays side and unevenly. 

I found it a little difficult initially to target an area, but as I worked it, I overcame the learning curve, and by the time I reached the bottom of the dresser, I felt like I had a better understanding of how to use the spray.

Once I had sprayed the dresser, I had the option to wipe it right away or let it sit.

I figured the dressers hadn’t been cared for in a while, so I opted to let it sit while spraying the wood-carved birds we inherited from my husband’s Great Aunt Mimi.

When I came back to the dresser, I was surprised to see how incredibly deep Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home works.

There was nicotine running down the dresser.

Nana was a smoker.

Here is a view from the side where you can see the yellow tinge of the nicotine coming out of the wood.

I started wiping the dresser down with a soft cloth.

There were areas along the rim, near the drawer hardware, and gummy corners. 

I could feel the resistance of the drag of the cloth, but then it just glided through.

It was incredible how easy it tacked the dirt.

The dresser has a lipped rim around it with various grooves and layers. 

Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home took care of it.

There was no scrubbing with a small brush; spray and wipe for a tremendously clean surface.

I’d like to clarify that this dresser was not sitting in storage. 

It was in my mother-in-law’s home in a spare bedroom. It was dusted with a cleaning routine.

Also, as a reminder, we had wiped it down with warm soapy water.

Here is what my paper towels looked like after wiping them down from top to bottom.

It was impressive.

I also love that this is a multipurpose cleaner.

It leaves me more room under the sink, only needing to store instead of different containers for everything.

I am eager to try it on other surfaces around my home.

It has a very milk citrus smell of grapefruit. 

Once I had it wiped down well, I moved on to Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care.

Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care:

I grew up watching my mom clean with Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care. 

My mom grew up watching her mom use it.

Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care has been around for over 60-years. 

First invented in Denver, Colorado, in 1951 by a widow and her three sons in a garage, Scott’s Liquid Gold woodcare quickly became a trusted household name.

It uses natural organic oils that deep clean, moisturize,s and protect natural wood without harming it like harmful waxes or polishes.

It is the perfect finish for all-natural woods–think furniture, doors, moldings, and even works well on most metal surfaces!

Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner: Cleaning

I sprayed Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care on the dresser.

I wiped.

The wood was thirsty, so I had to repeat before getting an even coat across the dresser.

I love that it brought out the wood’s natural sheen without leaving a residue.

It makes the wood feel less dry and gives it an even finish.

It has an extremely subtle nutty smell.

Both cleaners worked so well, and I took a few minutes to clean my husband’s nightstand too.

I cannot believe it took me so long to give this dresser some TLC.

Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home is a new product for me.

I had terrific results and will continue to use this product throughout my home for years to come.

It is so easy to use and gets results fast.

Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care is the best.

It restores the wood and leaves it in much better shape.

I can only imagine the difference it would have made in this dresser if Scott’s Liquid Gold products had been used on it regularly.

Both of these Scott’s Liquid Gold products are made with all-natural, organic oils making me love that I don’t have to worry about what I am inhaling or using around my kids and pets.

I highly recommend Scott’s Liquid Gold.

Whether you use the classic, tried, and true Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Care or you want to power up your cleaning by adding the Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home, you’ll love the results.

Scott's Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home and Wood Care Review


From now on, Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home and Wood Care are the only products I trust to use on Nana’s dresser.

I feel confident using the Liquid Gold Wood Care weekly as part of my dusting routine.

I will use the Liquid Gold ONE Clean Home maybe once a year or as needed on the dressers and more often around the house on my countertops, stainless steel appliances, and other surfaces.
