The best advice is to use what is recommended by your manufacturer and use it sparingly. Most fine furniture will benefit from regular dry dusting using a lambs-wool or microfiber duster. These products attract the dust from the furniture without pitting or scratching the surface. They won't leave any type of buildup or chemical residue. Be especially careful about using products on furniture that has damage to it's surfaces.
Bottom Line:Furniture polish isn't all it's cracked up to be. For oiling/polishing requirements for your piece it's best to get the advice of the manufacturer. Non-polish methods work well for dusting, without the risk.
