I hate the new creme polish. Have used this product for at least 25 years and love the way it works....the smell, the shine, etc. The new product has a bad smell; does not work as well. I WILL NOT not buy this again. You are forcing me to look else where for a polishing product. PLEASE bring back the old polish. It worked so well, why in the world would you change it!

Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

I have bought Guardsman over the years and the last time I was very disappointed. I got the Purifying Wood Cleaner and revitalizing Wood Poish cream. I am Very Disapointed. These products left a cloudy dull haze that seemed to strip the finish of the wood and had to get another polished to fix it. I have quality cherry current and antiques in pine and various other woods. I can not find one of your products to use.

    Very harmful, as if it just strips the finish

    By Lenny Studebaker

    from Ojai, CA, United States

    Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

    Bought this at the recommendation of my antique furniture restorer. Cam home today and the finish on the oak 100 yrs old table was awful. It is the only polish I have in the house so the housekeeper does not use anythig else, per my instruction. I am very disappointed and going back to the beeswax finish I used to use.

    Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

    Don't be fooled. This is not like the former Guardsman polish! I have used the original Guardsman polish for over 40 years. I always left a soft glow and enhanced the wood it treated. This Valspar product dulls the wood and seems too harsh. I don't need a cleaner added to my polish. I am going to search for another product. You have lost my business.

      Guardsman revitalizing Wood Polish (UV Protection)

      By lildebbie

      from Englewood, Ohio, United States

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

      The product mentioned above contained no waxes, abrasives or silicones - came in a blue aerosol can and was an AWESOME product. I use to be able to get it many places to include furniture stores, and now I cannot locate it anywhere. Where did this product go? Hopefully it was not discontinued. If it was - BRING IT BACK . I have solid wood furniture (Amish & Ethan Allen) and I have never used any products on my furniture that contain waxes. I have Ethan Allen furniture that is more than 30 years old and it looks brand new because of the high quality products I have used.

          Yesterday I shopped to buy more Guardsman products that I have used for 20 plus years. I was hesitant to buy the new products since names and formulas had changed on labels. After reading these reviews I am going to return the products and save my remaining original products for my best furniture. Cannot express how disappointed I am, Guardsman had always been the best product on the market.

          I have used Guardsman Concentrated Furniture Cream Polish for over 45 years and have been so satisfied, and since I needed more and couldn't find it I picked up Anytime Clean and Polish. It did not work at all and am so disappointed.

          The New Clean and Polish is not good. The old was fabulous and I used for over 50 years ona regular basis and have my still original furniture in good condition but will stop using if you do not go back to the original polish. This is useless stuff.

          Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

          I've tried to like your new formulation, but it doesn't come close to the old tried and true concentrate furniture polish cream. Please bring back the original, or at least reply to all of the online postings explaining why you changed. I may be looking for a new product. This one doesn't work well on my furniture, nor does it smell as nice. Unhappy 30+ year customer. :(

          I agree that nothing on the market could compare with the Guardsman you mixed with water. I've used it for 40 years and can't believe it is no longer available. Please consider adding it back to the product line.

          Hello. My husband recently learned that he is sensitive to salicylates which are common in many household cleaner products (i.e., fragrances). We've been looking for a salicylate-free wood polish. This website came up but I can't see any reference to salicylates.

          Comments about Durham 4lb Rock Hard Water Putty (4LB):

          I have been using guardsman for about 30 years and i am very sad that you changed your product. The original furniture cleaner that mixed with water. You would wash your furniture then dry/buff it to the beautiful luster...my furniture looked like it came to life every time i used it. It was a little bit more work but well worth it. Your product that you are selling today doesn't even come close to your original product. If something isn't broke....don't fix it. I am sure that i am not the only customer that would be thrilled if you added the original cleaner back out into the market.
