The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that home is where we are most likely to be exposed to toxic chemicals. After all we spend 80 to 90% of our time indoors, most of that at home. This fact is important when you understand that in a five-year study the EPA found airborne chemicals levels in homes were as much as seventy times higher indoors than outdoors.
Exposure to toxic indoor air can have a devastating effect on our health. One fifteen year study found that women who worked at home had a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who had jobs outside the home. The study concluded that the increased death rate was due to daily exposure to the hazardous chemicals found in ordinary products.
Tightly sealed energy efficient homes, along with keeping windows and doors tightly closed during cold weather, can increase the concentration of toxic chemicals.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide, under the topic "Immune System" tells us that most commercial furniture polishes have a two-week half-life, which means that two weeks after you have used the polish, the toxic chemicals are still half as strong as they originally were, and by that time you have probably used it again!
The cautions are so many that the US Army recommends the avoidance of aerosol cleaners, furniture polishes, and air fresheners. They recommend chemicals be stored outside the home or in the garage.
Inhaling or ingesting furniture polish can cause poisoning. This exposure is a medical emergency.
Rustic Touch Repels Dust!
One of the first things we notice when using Rustic Touch is that the finish stays polished and cleaner longer. Dust is repelled. Non-aerosol, nonflammable Rustic Touch does not contain hazardous solvents, petroleum distillates, or chemical propellants. Many furniture polishes use lemon or orange oils which give a temporary shine, but also leave an oily film that attracts dust.
Rustic Touch uses the hardest of natural waxes harvested from carnauba wax palms. Carnauba wax dries crystal clear, adding strength and shine and protection against nicks and scratches. The carnauba wax palms are carefully grown and harvested in a way that ensures the continuous supply of this very special wax plant. Rustic Touch restores and shines new and old wood furniture without a waxy, oily buildup, and does so much more.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide lists some favorite uses for Rustic Touch:
Automobiles - Cooler weather is a perfect time to give the insides of our automobiles a good cleaning. Rustic Touch cleans vinyl and leather. It is also great for cleaning the dash of your car. NOTE: Spray it on a cloth to apply. If you spray it directly on the dash, you could get it on the inside of your windshield.
Ceiling Fans - Use Rustic Touch to clean and to repel dust from the fan blades.
Paneling - After wiping down paneling with diluted Tough & Tender, use Rustic Touch to renew and enhance the look of the wood.
Shoes - To remove scuff marks from shoes, spray them with Rustic Touch. Remember this tip when you are walking out the door and notice that your shoes need polishing. Spray a bit of Rustic Touch on a bit of cloth or paper towel and apply to shoes. Your shoes will shine.
Window Sills - Reduce allergy-causing dust by cleaning with Rustic Touch.

Before I became a Melaleuca customer, I used Pledge and orange oil, or something or another to dust my wood furniture. Not only was pledge "waxy" but it had the aerosol spray, and I would always get a cough. And the oil cleaner was too "greasy." When I ordered the Rustic Touch for the first time, I fell in love with, not only the smell, but the results of how well it cleaned!! The dust stayed off my wood for weeks, and I also use it to clean the dash on the inside of my car, my leather shoes and boots, and also my stainless steel appliances!! This is one product I will always use!! What a great value!! Thank you, Melaleuca.
The Wellness Wellness Guide has helped on retention in my group, as there is so much helpful information to share about how to use our products for so many health issues, even with our animals. Love it! I share it all the time, and even give it as a present to some of my customers.
Rustic Touch!!!! Wonderful even on stainless steel appliances and leather. I noticed that my wood furniture stays cleaner longer. Cannot be without it.
I do love Rustic Touch for our wood furniture, but that's not its only claim to fame at our house. It's a great quick fix for leather items that range from shoes to purses to equine paraphernalia (bridles, saddles, etc). My latest and greatest discovery is to spray a few layers on the bottom of a clean, dry cat litter pan. When it came time to wash them, there was no build up to work through. Cleaning was made much easier.
I have a saddle in my cabin that has not been used for many, many years. I sprayed Rustic Touch on it and wiped it down, and it looks like a new saddle now! Wow...who would have known! Also just a little spray and wipe off on any leather shoes gives a really great shoe shine. It saves lots of time.
It's this simple...If you have stainless appliances and you hate all the marks from water that comes from the water and ice dispenser, finger prints that we all know are impossible to prevent, grease and dirt that naturally cover surfaces, drips on the dishwasher that you get every time you open it with wet hands, oven fronts and microwaves...I have them all, and I hated them when we bought our condo that has them already. It bothered me every time I walked into the kitchen. I tried other Melaleuca products that worked well but not completely on old water spots or greasy fingers. Until...someone recommended I try Rustic Touch. AMAZING!!! Now, everyone that I tell about it uses it with incredible results. YES, it's great on furniture, also great on your car dashboard. And I use it on leather shoes (fantastic) and purses too. But who would think to use it on stainless appliances? You've got to try it. You'll be amazed too.
I have used Rustic Touch for several years to renew used furniture that I sell in my flea market booth. It first pulls dirt and old wax residue from the surface. Then it begins to nourish the wood and bring that beautiful glow out. I love it!
I absolutely love Rustic Touch. I have several pieces of leather furniture in my house, and after years of using a harsh manufacturer leather cleaner my furniture looked dull, and I was ready to give it away. That was until I tried Rustic Touch. I ordered three bottles, and cleaned my couch and love seat and WOW! My furniture looks and feels wonderful. I also use it on my leather seats in my car, my dashboard, and on my tires! I will never go without it!!! Also cleans my wood cabinets and bookcase without that toxic smell and after odor. Needless to say I am keeping my furniture.
A few months ago, our cleaning lady decided to use her own commercial cleaner to scrub the grout in our kitchen, which needed a deep cleaning. Well, some of it splashed up onto the bottom of our stainless steel dishwasher and caused multiple spots which she couldn't get rid of. She was mortified, and I was wondering if we'd have to get a new dishwasher door. Then I remembered that Rustic Touch has many uses, so we tried it on the spotting. It took several applications, but now the spots are pretty much gone. Not sure if the Rustic Touch got rid of the spots, filled them in, or what. We're not concerned with the specifics of how it worked; we're just happy that Rustic Touch came through and saved us from buying a new dishwasher door. Melaleuca to the rescue again! Thank you,
We love Rustic Touch. A great shoe polish to keep your new shoes looking great and it takes really good care of the leather. We love to polish the insides of our cars and the dash especially. It conditions the dash so it won't crack or split. The most unusual thing we used Rustic Touch for was to restore a van. The brown paint was heavily oxidized, but Rustic Touch to the rescue. It made it shiny and looked like a new paint job! Now you see why we love Rustic Touch! Thank you Melaleuca for such a great product, and RM Barry for helping to promote those products!
I love Rustic Touch. I have a leather sofa. I spray Rustic Touch on it every couple weeks and wipe down. My furniture looks as beautiful today as the day I purchased it. I also use it on the leather seats in my car. I feel like dusting with Rustic Touch makes it so I dust less often. I have used Rustic Touch on shoes as well.
This is my Rustic Touch story. I have used and will continue to use Rustic Touch on the interior of our vehicles. Not only does it do a better job than Armor All, your vehicle smells absolutely wonderful, and looks like it just came from the showroom! This is the best for the interior of vehicles!
