Add the Bald's Original Green Top Furniture Balm to your basket

After reading positive reviews I bought the Green Top balm to help restore a newly acquired vintage GPlan light oak sideboard. I knew it wouldn't return to it's pale blond colour but this has made it DARKER which I didn't want. Nor has it had any restorative effect on the signs of age. I did try a small area first but the darkening wasn't obvious until the whole was done. I searched a long time for this sideboard & I'm trying not to let disappointment spoil my excitement at finding it. With the rise in popularity of this 'mid-century modern' look I wouldn't want anyone else to be disappointed.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review and speaking with us. We're sorry the colour turned out darker than you were expecting. We do hope this will lighten over a period of time.
What a Shame!”
by Gill Alderton
I loved everything about this product (even though it is expensive) but what a disappointment it is that the cork closure has now been replaced with an inferior plastic top that is IMPOSSIBLE for me to open! I also think now that the cork is a thing of the past, the wax coating is a bit pretentious. (I dare not look to see if the nut has gone as well.) Can't really use the empty bottle as a vase now either as it has a screw top. Shame... great product that was something special but I will no longer be buying it.

A note from the team: Our suppliers have been in touch to advise the reason for the change to the top was purely down to new EU regulations that meant that this now requires a child safety cap. After looking at many different options, this was the only way they could carry on with the product in it’s current formulation. The supplier added the wax to the top in order to keep the look of the product as similar as possible. EU Regulations have dictated this change rather than suppliers choice. Please note that although you've considered using it as a vase this is not the intended use for this product.
Well worth the money”
Although expensive, this polish is well worth it. It has transformed an old faded pine chest, giving it depth and lustre, and covering minor scratches, and a little goes a long way. I just wish it had a screw top as I find the cork hard to get back in and ended up spilling it!

An excellent product, one of my Lakeland favorites. I use this on our oak table and nest of tables and it brings them up like new, smells lovely too. I've also sanded old furniture to restore it then waxed it and used this on top and it just finishes off the wood. Lasts a long time and like I say on my second bottle so I've been happy with it a long time.

RESTORED MY FURNITURE”
I purchased this balm to restore an old walnut dining table. I am very impressed with the results. The table had a sun-faded leaf and was covered in white mould, scuffs and scratches. I applied the balm on to a soft cotton cloth and wiped it on to the wood. It instantly transformed the colour and patina of the table. I then stored the soft cloth in a plastic bag to use again and again to clean and dust the wood thereby saving money. This balm smell great too!

This review is for an older version of this product
I am amazed by this product which with the first use has alredy brought up my wooden furniture which was tired and worn and made it look almost as good as when it was first bought. It smells lovely aswell and I am looking forward to giving them another go soon. Although it is expensive it is definitely worth the money as I had tried various other polishes and beeswax which just did not do the job.

I have used this product for several years : it is brilliant! Makes furniture look and smell great. I always use it at Christmas so it has become one of our "family Christmas traditions (and smells)!" The empty bottles make very classic flower vases.

I bought this on the basis of an email from Lakeland, indicating that it was a customer favourite. It was very disappointing, expensive, and did not do what it promised. I am returning it to the store and will go back to well-known spray polish.

Have been using this oil for a couple of years now. It cleans as well as polishes, smells fabulous and gives your furniture that cared for look. I only use it once a month and it's the only bit of housework I enjoy!

Very pleased with this product. My kitchen table had a sticky feel due to the breakdown of the original varnish. Scraped off, rubbed this in then polished up and it looks great. Yes its pricey but a little goes a long way.
