One of my favorite fixes for furniture scratches is Old English Scratch Oil. As you can see by the photo, I use mine all the time! Essentially, it’s furniture oil with a little bit of stain in it. It comes in several different shades and you just rub it on the surface. If you’re doing a table top, rub it over the entire surface–the oil with color the scratches while cleaning and polishing the entire surface. A great quick fix!
Forget the fancy, expensive, record cleaning products! Here’s an easy and economical way to clean your vinyl (Wingo has been cleaning his records this way for years). Get yourself a can of denatured alcohol at your local hardware store. Put the denatured alcohol, undiluted, into a spray bottle. Spray your record lightly and, using a soft cotton rag (old t-shirts are perfect), wipe in a circular motion with the grooves of the record. Denatured alcohol cuts through the grime without damaging the vinyl.
With gratitude to Tim Sullivan & The Secret Agency of Rollinsford NH, we are happy to welcome you to our new web site! This has been on our “to do” list for a number of years but between construction projects, renovations, the constant flow of new inventory, and our commitment to being open 7 days a week/365 days a year, the web site project has always take a back seat. But no longer! Tim was able to take my “chicken scratch” and turn it into a working web site that represents our esthetic & our vision. And beyond that, he is teaching me how to do it myself! So welcome to the virtual version of RS Butlers! And thank you, Tim!
