We have beautiful wood cabinets in our motor home and I'd like to keep them that way.

Any suggestions for the best wax to use? I know they say not to use the store brand products on a regular basis.

Have used Old English for years. It does require a bit more work, but does oil the wood instead of just spraying some sort of waxy stuff on the surface.

X2 for Old English Lemon Oil (good for light or dark wood).

But Pledge Wood Re-vitalizer does a great job if you can find it.

Foretravel recommends Dr Wood made by Zep. The real wood cabinets and paneling in my 1994 Foretravel look like new.

I used to do carpentry work on a customer's million dollar home and the cleaning lady used lemon oil on their cabinets. That's all I use on my gun stocks that I value more than our cabinets. Old English Lemon oil gets my vote.

I may be wrong but I have neen told you can clean the cabinets but with the finish they put on them nothing will get to the wood.

I totally agree. The finish is totally sealed be it lacquered or other modern finishes. I think the reason for top coats is to keep it from drying out or mostly to look shiny.. As for lifetime protection I don't think any of us will outlive the finish applied to modern cabinets, my gun stocks included and including my hand rubbed oil stocks. I have a Remington from the 40's that looks like new but I lemon oil it. We "oilers" have to admit, it does give us that warm fuzzy feeling that we are doing the best we can for our woodwork. Lemon oil makes it look bright & shiny but does nothing for the wood... . IMO..
