Kramer's Best Recipe
Television aficionados might associate the name Kramer with Seinfeld, but people in the antique industry know better.
Sugar Creek’s John Kramer is the creator of Kramer’s Best Antique Improver, a secret blend that he says “works better than any product on the market” to clean, restore, and preserve traditional finishes and wood.
John worked in the museum industry for years, repairing and preserving wood pieces from as early as the 1400s. He recognized that pollution, central heat, air conditioning, and other modern creations affect wood in ways that it is not able to handle. John began collecting old-time recipes for cleaners, preservatives, and finishes to figure out the best way to repair and protect antique wood and finishes.
“After several years of work, I got really lucky,” he says. “There’s nothing else quite like it.”
Since 1987, Kramer’s Best has appeared at antique shows and shops; it is also used by many tool, clock, and radio collectors; old car and motorcycle enthusiasts; and museum conservators.
