Our Story

Our Story

Parker & Bailey products originated when Mr. Bailey, a respected furniture maker joined forces with Mr. Parker, a manufacturer of fine waxes and polishes. A small container of Parker's Perfect Polish was included with each furniture sale. Customers kept returning for more, which gave Parker the idea to join forces and package the furniture cream for everyone. So in 1879, Parker and Bailey began producing fine wood care products such as: Kitchen Cabinet Cream, Furniture Cream, and Lemon Oil Polish. These traditional formulas, tried and tested for over a hundred years, have a dedicated following among furniture restorers and antique experts alike. Over the past several years, Parker & Bailey has introduced new items like: Silver Polish, Brass & Copper Polish, Cook Top Cleaner, Wood Floor Cleaner, Wood Floor Cream, Stain Remover, Pet Stain Remover, and many more. We hope you like our products to clean, polish, and protect for years to come.

I very seldom write to a manufacturer to endorse their products, but in this case I just had to contact you to tell  you my success story. I have a lovely white lacy sweater that was not that expensive, but I wear it often in the warm weather because many places have their air conditioners on.  I volunteer at our local library and this morning I tossed the sweater into my tote bag not realizing that the cap on a black marker had fallen off…needless to say, when I saw my sweater covered in black ink in several large areas, I thought it was ruined. I had a small sample bottle of your stain remover at home  and decided to try to remove the stains before throwing the garment away.  I was absolutely amazed…every spot is gone! The ink was so easy to remove and after rinsing in cold water there is not a spot remaining. I will certainly use your wonderful product again….very gratefully, Susan Cote, Shrewsbury,Massachusetts

 

Hello! Hoping you can help me find a location in the Montreal area that carries the Parker & Bailey Granite & Stone Cleaner. I purchased this product at Winners in Pointe-Claire, Quebec and absolutely love it.  However I am unable to locate this product anywhere! I have tried other brands and hate, hate , hate them! Do you have retailers in this area?  or alternatively is there a web site ? I tried your website but unable to create an account with an address in Canada.   Hopefully you are able  to find a source for me. Thank you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Just want to say I love your Lemon Oil Polish and I also use many other products that you manufacture. My bedroom furniture in particular has intricate wood carvings, a craft not too much around today. I have a suggestion for your packaging of this lemon oil polish as it spilled all over my carpet today as I was using it. The bottle is too thin and tall. It should be shorter and stouter so that is does not tip over easily. It should also have a thin squirt to so that if this happens, it would not spill as much as mine. In addition to cleaning my beautiful furniture today, I also had to soak up the oil from my carpet, a task I was not happy with. I will continue to use your products, however I will transfer this oil to a more convenient bottle. Thank you for listening to me today.

Hello:  Donna here. First let me say I LOVE your products. My friends compliment me on all my mirrors and floors. It may not be a bad idea to get those guy’s and gal’s who do those home improvement programs to have them on hand and get more word out. I am champion Parker & Bailey.  Thank you for a real honest to good product, it is rare in this day and age.

I bought some Parker & Baily wood cleaner this morning when I went "into town" and just tested it on an out of the way spot to see what the results would be.  Amazing.  Just amazing!  I have been searching for a wood cleaner that wouldn't leave any residue!  This is the real deal.  AND...it cleans incredibly well, without a herculean effort.   I just moved into a very large post and beam home and the wood has been neglected for a decade.  Now, I have something to keep me busy through the upcoming winter.  Did I mention there is wood every where?   Wonderful, warm...and soon to be sparkling clean...wood!  I love being surrounded by wood...and I can't wait to bring it back to its beauty. Thank you for making such a superb product.

I'm heading back out to civilization later today to empty the sore shelf of your wood cleaner.  As I mentioned, its a very big home!!!!!

Hey, maybe I'll  give gift baskets of your products for Christmas!

HI
I just wanted to say that we received the cabinet cleaner and it is wonderful.  We installed cherry Shaker cabinets about ten years ago, and I have been appalled at how dirty they get.  I used the cleaner for a first go-round and I feel like we have a brand new kitchen again and the cabinets feel wonderful--no slimy residue as with other things I have tried.  Thank you!

Hi
Just had to let you know what a great product these markers are! I have been looking at these scratches in my floor for far too long and just recently saw the markers in my local Home Sense store. For $4.99 I figured I really couldn't go wrong to give them a try. The result is amazing. You would have to know where the scratches were and get down on your knees to examine the floor to see any traces of them. Thanks so much for a great product. My house is full of hardwood and now I don't have to stress as much about the scratches that happen in everyday life!

Thanks,
Joann

Just used your SS polish on my appliances.  Purchased at The Container Store. After frustrating attempts with 2 other products, yours worked like magic! I am so happy now that the appliances in our rental house look clean.

Sincerely,

Hello

I feel very strongly that I should contact you. I have used your 'lemon oil' polish at home for quite a while and have always been delighted with the results especially on old treasured wood furniture.During the last few months a great deal of 're-ordering' has taken place at our village Church. When we cleaned up after the building work was finished I realised just how poor and dry a lot of the furniture was especially the very old furniture. I offered and was given permission to treat said furniture. I was unable to get the lemon oil but managed to get orange oil instead. The results have been dramatic and have made a big impression on a lot of people. I felt I must write to thank you and to say how wonderful your product is.

 

Regards,

I tried your Lemon Oil wood polish for the first time.

Because I had not used it before I just tried it on my bedroom set (walnut).

I LOVE it. 

I used to have to dust that furniture every other day and after using your product I only have to dust once aweek.  And that was just an unexpected benefit, the wood looks great.

I've tried several different brands but now will not ever use anything else.

Good Evening Parker Bailey, 
I am writing to you because I recently purchased your wood cleaner from Marshalls and wow bravo! It is the best purchase of 2014 to date! I love my wood floors but never got them to be shiny and bring out that beautiful natural  wood look, after one use of your cleaner, wow I am a happy camper! I have received so many more compliments on em! Gosh I wish I knew how good it was because I would have stocked up on it or any other of your products, I see you also produce granite cleaner and stainless steel cleaner, well I am renovating my kitchen with all new appliance and counter so I need to look for those other cleaners and stock up. But you know how Marshalls is, inventory moves so quick there that I hope you are there when I go back next weekend. Well thanks again for making the best of the best!

A few weeks ago I used the Parker & Bailey furniture polish my Mom had purchased for her own place. Incredible, my entire house was shining and I had to put no effort into it. The best thing was that it didn't leave finger prints, it's not greasy at all. A few days ago, I found other Parker & Bailey products and stocked up on the furniture polish. I also found the wood floor cleaner. My floors look beautiful but moping has been a nightmare. Any soap dulls it, just water doesn't really clean it, steam leaves streaks. I had given up on trying to get my floor shining again. When I saw this wood floor cleaner, I thought I'd give it one last shot, but didn't believe it would be a miracle product..... but it is!! It took me 4 years, but my floor shines again! And it dries so fast I don't have to wait for my daughter to be sleeping to get it done. THANK YOU!

I purchased your Kitchen Cabinet Cream, I have used this today and must say I am most impressed with the results. The cabinets haven't looked so good since they have been fitted, I have also used it on the kitchen table also with excellent results. I would not hesitate in recommending your product to friends

I used your kitchen cabinet cream on my dining room table and it looks so good! The table is heavily used and also old, but your product made it look new! One thing that I like is that it does not smell and is non-toxic!
