You Can Keep the Change

Growing up in Denver, Colorado, I have used Scott’s Liquid Gold my whole life.  As a teen in the 70’s, one of my chores around the house was to dust the dining room furniture. My mother is the one that introduced me to Scott’s Liquid Gold.  She used it on our ‘good’ furniture.  It always made things look great, especially a large over-sized hutch that housed the ‘good’ dishes. It made everything in the dining room look so clean and shiny.  I can still smell the original almond scent.

A French author in the 1600’s wrote, “The only thing constant in life is change.”  Pretty astute for a guy from the 1600’s.  But not all change is for the better.  A one pound can of green beans now weighs 14.5 ounces.  The average price for a movie ticket has gone from about $1.50 in 1970 to nearly $8.

Coming soon to a store near you – A NEW look for Scott’s Liquid Gold!

Fortunately Scott’s Liquid Gold has not really changed much in the last 40 years. The can looks a little different; cleaner, brighter and fresher. But like an old friend, it is one of the things I can count on in an ever-changing world.  I still use Liquid Gold to dust the dining room furniture and I have taught my daughter to do the same.  It still leaves my furniture clean and shiny.  It still has that warm, familiar almond scent.  I’m not sure people still do chores, dust a hutch or use the ‘good’ dishes but if they do I hope they are also using Scott’s Liquid Gold in their home.  It’s tried and true and works just as well today as it did when I used to dust the hutch.


  1. How do I clean the rags I’ve used with Liquid Gold? Are they safe to leave in the house unwashed or are they flammable?
    Thank you.


    1. Great questions! Thanks for asking. You can wash the rags used for Liquid Gold in the washing machine with heavy items like rugs or ‘garage’ towels like the one used to wash the car. We recommend washing them in hot water with a second rinse. It is also a good idea to follow with a small empty load to wash out the washing machine. If left unwashed we suggest storing them in a cool dark place as you would with other household chemical products. Although Liquid Gold has a solvent that is considered a flammable ingredient, the risk is extremely low and should not be cause for concern. We hope that answers your questions.
