I recently purchased some bedroom furniture from a place called "Storehouse Furniture" (their "Hampton" collection). It is made of domestic hardwood and walnut veneers with a dark brown (almost black) stain.

The company recommends cleaning with a just a cloth...but that does nothing but move the dust around! Pledge, Old English and other furniture polishes leave streaks. I've found Endust works somewhat better -- but not much.

Can anyone out there recommend a good cleaning product for furniture with a dark stain that won't streak or take off the stain, and is safe and (relatively) non-toxic?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Here is a few suggestions. First you need a furniture dusting cloth or an old flannel shirt will do just cut off any seems. The flannel will attract the dirt instead of smearing it all over. The next thing is Homer Formby's Tungsun Oil. You can get it at most Hardware Store's, (***** , Home DePot, Ace,etc..and also at most grocery stores, all though you pay more). You can also check out all the Homer Formby wood products, of which there is a slew of them. You wipe the oil on with the flannel cloth. You'll be amazed with the life your furniture will have. It's beautiful, ooh la la. If you just want to lightly dust because maybe your short on time, pick up an Ostrich feather duster, they cost a little more but worth every penny. They work so well that you'll want to dust everything. Have fun! LOL
