What’s the Dutch Glow and How It works.
Dutch Glow has been heavily advertised over the internet and TV as a nourishing furniture polish that reveals the beauty of any wood surface. The product is claimed to be based on a secret 100-year old formula developed by the Amish wood makers, containing entirely simple and safe ingredients, called “Amish Wood Milk”. From the commercials and info videos we see the polish can help us not only remove dirt, fingerprints, watermark and grease, but also easily get rid of the layers of wax built-up on the furniture left there by some other wood caring products. More than enough promises for those who take everything seen in the ads at a face value, the numerous consumers’ reviews in the web, however, appear very contradictious. Some state the Dutch Glow polish keeps its promises; others seem very disappointed and report a scam. To get to the bottom of the matter it seems sensible to list out some pros and cons of the polish before making a conclusion.
Dutch Glow Pros.
#1 One polish for all your furniture
The best part of the product is that you can use it on any wooden furniture, fitting and flooring. Maple, hickory, cherry, oak, and even painted wood and antiques should be fine with using the polish, as it doesn’t contain silicon spray or wax that can damage wood.
#2 Clean formula of the polish.
The Dutch Glow claims to contain entirely natural simple ingredients which make it a safe product unlike other polishes based on harsh chemicals.
#3 Leaves no marks
The polish isn’t oily, which means the Dutch Glow is unlikely to leave any marks or streaks after the use, which is another big plus. The web is filled with the before-after pictures and videos of happy consumers describing how the polish turned their furniture back to life safely and with no elbow grease. So far sounds like a true remedy for the furniture, but what characteristics lots of customers found unsatisfying?
Dutch Glow Cons.
#1 the doubtful Amish Woodmilk.
First of all, the makers of the Dutch Glow didn’t come up with any proof that their formula does have something to do with the secret century-old Amish recipe. In fact it’s difficult to find the information about its actual ingredients, which leaves a feeling that the “Amish Wood Milk” is only a marketing tool.
#2 Confusing ordering process.
Another serious drawback that made many consumers frustrated is a confusing ordering process. They charge $10 for the Dutch Glow plus $7.95 for shipping and handling and once again $7.95 for processing the order with the total value of $27.90 for two bottles of the polish. Since the possibility to buy just one bottle wasn’t very clear explained, lots of people ordered more product than they intended.
#2 expensive shipping and refunds.
The consumer has 30 days to try the Dutch Glow, during which it’s still possible to return it back for a refund if it didn’t meet the expectations, however in this case the fees for the shipping, handling and processing, which makes $15.90 plus $2 fee for web surcharge, are non-refundable Thus, the overall sum of these fees ($17.90) is going to cost the consumer more than a bottle of the polish itself. Nevertheless, it’s easy to solve this problem by purchasing The Dutch Glow in one of the local stores instead of internet shop to avoid the excessive spending.
The Bottom-Line Figure.
Now that all the merits and flaws are clear, it’s hard to recommend The Dutch Glow as a product completely living up to its advertisement. With the overwhelming marketing tools and unsupported claims it makes an impression of ordinary furniture polish that does its job just like many other similar products.
