    I have this entertainment shelf and if I use a washcloth or a paper towel it will "scratch" the object. Being so glossy, it collects prints quite easy and would like to clean it. What's safe to use on glossy furniture? Also, water?

    The pledge won't eat away at the finish? Also, is that something a typical walmart will carry? (The microfiber)

    Thanks

    Pledge is made for cleaning surfaces like that. And Microfiber you should easily be able to find at crapmart

    Wow, either you never knew any better, or you have WalMart stock.

    I'm not sure which one is worse. ;)

    I just soak a microfiber cloth in water, ring it out so there is almost no water left. Then, I wipe and use a completely dry microfiber cloth to get rid of the h2o residue. I guess you can increase the effectiveness with a little bit of isopropyl alcohol added to the mix.

    Or go to Wallyworld and buy a new one:D

    I guess it is where you live. My entire family lives, and I was born, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Walmarts are CRAP there and nobody goes to them.

    Here in Pensacola, Fl the Walmarts are very nice and "State-of-the-art" something we don't have too much of because it's just a normal average city. They actually just re-did 2 of the 4 in my surrounding 15 miles, they look brand new and amazing, actually.

    I get everything from Walmart except my clothes and expensive gadgets. It's all about where you live. As such, we don't even glance at the Kmart here when passing by.
