"I used KIWI neutral shoe polish on the Waverly cabinet of my Allwave 23. This was recommended by a friend who deals in antique furniture. It removes the dirt and leaves a nice shine. "

"And vacuum the cabinet and chassis first.  The clear plastic dial strip can be cleaned with a mild detergent on a damp cloth. My experience is the numbering is water fast.  Your cabinet looks pretty good, too. Should clean up nicely. Just…"
