About Dutch Glow

Dutch Glow claims to be a wood restorer derived from a 100-year-old Amish formula that cleans, polishes, and nourishes for a long-lasting shine. They boast it reveals the wood’s natural beauty, works on painted surfaces, and removes waxy buildup.

Dutch Glow is brought to you by SAS Group, a direct marketing company based in Tarrytown, NY who has been pushing the product actively during the past few months. They are not accredited or rated by the Better Business Bureau, which the BBB claims is due to a lack of information about the company at the time of this writing.

How Dutch Glow Works

Dutch Glow also goes under the moniker Amish Wood Milk, ostensibly because it was invented by Amish woodworkers (and has a white color.) They state its “simple” ingredients break down years of wax buildup from using other polishes, revealing the furniture’s natural glow. However, we've accumulated numerous Dutch Glow Reviews that contradict that claim.

To use Dutch Glow, apply on any wood surface and wipe with a cloth. They brag it’s like a magician on cabinets, making grease, smoke stains, and fingerprints disappear. They claim you can also restore wood antiques and get rid of crayon marks left by the kids in a similar fashion. Their video shows before-and-afters of a variety of wood products, all appearing to be dramatically brought back to life with a stroke of Dutch Glow. Again, numerous complaints state otherwise.

Dutch Wood Glow use is suggested on oak, cherry, pine, maple, or teak and implore you to join the generations of sportsmen who trust Dutch Glow on their wood (which appears to adorn shotgun handles and duck decoys.)

Each Dutch Glow Order includes:

  • 1 12 oz bottle Dutch Glow Amish Wood Milk
  • 1 bottle with floor nozzle “free” (extra S & P)
  • Jumbo Microfiber Polishing Cloth

Dutch Glow Pricing, Shipping, and Returns

Dutch Glow retails for $10 plus $7.95 S & P but they automatically double your order (and throw in a floor nozzle and microfiber cloth) “free” and charge an additional $7.95 processing. In addition there is a $2 “web surcharge fee” on all orders, making the total $27.90 for 2 bottles of Dutch Glow. (By clicking “process order” you are also signing an arbitration agreement.) They state you have 30 days to try Dutch Glow. If you find that dust (or down pillows) is still building up on your furniture (or any other reason) they claim you can return it for a refund; however, you have to pay to ship it back, and the $17.90 in processing fees will not be returned.

Our Dutch Glow Review: We've tried it!

After all the brouhaha from our readers, we at HighYa decided to try out Dutch Glow ourselves. It was purchased from Bed, Bath & Beyond for $9.99 plus tax, so luckily we didn't have to deal with the excessive shipping fees and up-selling tactics mentioned in the next section.

Dutch Glow Packaging

The first issue we noticed was the fact that the sprayer didn’t work – this was something another reviewer also experienced. We took the nozzle off, cut the tube shorter and screwed it back into the Dutch Glow bottle, which seemed to solve the problem.

Next, as the instructions indicated, we sprayed the Dutch Glow onto a wooden table surface and kitchen cabinets, wiping with a clean dry cloth.

The thick liquid that came out of the bottle did indeed clean the table and cabinets reasonably well. But we think it’s more of the elbow grease and dry cloth that did the trick – almost any other cleaning solution, including water, would do the same thing.

To prove this point, we asked an unbiased observer (OK, it was my wife) to take a look at a kitchen cabinet sprayed and cleaned with Dutch Glow and one simply wiped down with a cloth. The result? She couldn’t tell the difference.

Dutch Glow is not gooey, messy, nor oily. In fact, it did not leave any streaks, which are all pluses. Dutch Glow doesn’t seem to be as horrible a product as some of the reviewers have indicated. But is it GREAT and lives up to the HYPE? Well, not really.

And, if you keep reading, you will see the MANY minuses people who purchased Dutch Glow have said they experienced. 

Bottom Line: Is Dutch Glow a Scam?

First of all, there are some unsupported claims by this product. There is no evidence that it is a century-old formula invented by the Amish (an old-fashioned Christian sect known for their rejection of technology and, apparently, their glowing furniture.) In fact, they don’t even list its ingredients at all.

Secondly, if you were planning on going the route of ordering Dutch Glow through the website or telephone, think again. The shipping and processing fees are more expensive than the product itself, a “red flag” for us at Highya. That means, even if you do not like the product you will be in the hole for your initial fees, plus what it costs to ship back. And let’s not forget you are also signing an arbitration agreement when you buy, preventing you from traditional legal recourse. 

What The Highya Customer Reviews Say about Dutch Glow

Many of the 150+ reviews on our site complain of long delivery times, horrible customer service, a TON of additional up-selling during the Dutch Glow purchase, telemarketers bombarding you, and stories of getting charged more than expected tell us that it's better to not buy online from their website.

If you still want to try Dutch Glow, we recommend going the route of purchasing directly from a local retailer (like we did at Bed, Bath & Beyond).

Next, as a friendly suggestion, don’t set high expectations for this product. As we mentioned, it will do some cleaning about the same any ordinary cleaning solution applied with a dry cloth would – it’s not “magic!” If your furniture has scratches and other stains, it will be quite difficult to remove them with Dutch Glow alone, in spite of what the commercial promises.

Readers have given Dutch Glow 1.5 stars, but the vast majority of them are frustrated with the customer service, extremely high shipping charges, and absurd refund policies. If Dutch Glow was being evaluated on the product alone, we would say it deserves at least 2.5 stars if not 3.

  • TV Promotion is a Scam

    • by Luis,
    • California,
    • Apr 23, 2015

    I only wanted the one bottle and when I dialed the number it was a recording that just keeps offering you other orders even after hitting #, so I finally hang up. I then saw a $63 charge on my card, and when I called, I was told to refuse the shipment which I did but only got a $27 credit as the rest was freight and handling. This is a total scam!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Sorry I didn't check the reviews first!

    • by Nora C.,
    • San Francisco, CA,
    • Apr 23, 2015

    It's too bad I didn't check the reviews before buying "Dutch Glow". Sounded great but did absolutely nothing. My spray furniture wax does much better since it at least shines the furniture. Fortunately I purchased it through a retail store so did not have to pay shipping and handling.

    Don't bother buying this product.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Worst money spent

    • by A Keller,
    • Florence, KY,
    • Apr 20, 2015

    This is a scam, for sure! I bought this product for my floors and it looked like grease on my hardwood floors. I washed them three times and used a degreaser to get the stuff off. I ended up falling because it was still slippery. I was directed to a rep. named G. Patterson, talk about rude, she said, "what do you want me to do about it?" and hung up. WOW! Don't waste your hard earned money.

    This product sucks

    • by Gina S,
    • Florida,
    • Apr 19, 2015

    I bought the Dutch Glow and it does nothing. I have no problem giving praise when its due but this crap deserves a -10. Don't waste your cash. If this is a real Amish product they should be ashamed of themselves. Consider this a rip off!

    Would not recommend this product.

    • by Limby,
    • Florida,
    • Apr 16, 2015

    If you are looking for a wood cleaner, this may be a good buy. It cleans the dust just like any other wood cleaner, It does NOT restore the wood, even after rubbing with a clean cloth, like the instructions indicate. It does not do what it says it does. Very disappointed.

    Do Not Waste Your Money On This

    • by Deb,
    • Columbia, MD,
    • Apr 10, 2015

    I was very excited to use this Amish Wood Milk on my bedroom furniture. First, the sprayer did not work. So I poured product on a soft cloth and used on my night stand. What a waste of $10 plus tax. It didn't do one thing that they claimed! Do not buy this.

    It saved my antique dresser

    • by Carmen,
    • New York City, NY,
    • Apr 8, 2015

    Our vaporizer spun around and hit our antique dresser directly. I was miserable that it had ruined the piece. Half a bottle of this product was used three times a week apart, and the white watermarks are completely gone. I can't tell you how impressed I am.

    Best product I've ever used

    • by Stephanie,
    • Memphis TN,
    • Apr 6, 2015

    I LOVE this stuff, not sure why it's getting such low reviews. I don't have central air in my home so my house stays super dusty. When I use any other polish there is dust covering the surface within minutes but not with the Wood Milk, went 2 weeks with out having to dust. I just cleaned my ceiling fans and they look brand new. I literally had no idea there was a gold design on them, at first I thought it was taking off the finish, nope, just taking off 20+ years of gross off the blades. Best product EVER, LOVE this stuff.

    Wish I could post a picture of my new looking blades!

    Don't waste your money

    • by Phyllis,
    • Portland,
    • Mar 30, 2015

    This does nothing at all. Do not waste your money. I should have known it's too good to be true. I purchased this and have 4 bottles of garbage. It doesn't clean cabinets or anything else it claims. Stick to Murphy's Oil Soap, Orange Glow, or other products you can buy at a big boxed store.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rip off

    • by Joyce,
    • Front Royal, VA,
    • Mar 29, 2015

    This product is no better than warm soapy water. I was very disappointed. I wrote the company to complain and they didn't bother to respond. Guess they already knew the product was bogus. Oh well. There goes $10 down the drain.

    My experience with this company

    • by Nancy Koecke,
    • Tacoma, Wa,
    • Mar 26, 2015

    My experience with this company was not a good one. I ordered a 10.00 kit and the next thing I knew is they took 78.68 out of my account. I immediately called them and they said when it arrives just do not open it. So I did in a few weeks later. They returned 40.00 to my account so I called immediately. They said oh you have to call our return specialist. I did and she told me there's no mistake 38.68 was for shipping and handling. I said I did not order this, she argued with me that I had in fact ordered it, and so I paid 38.86 for nothing and the lady was very rude!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
