Behold is a brand of Furniture Polish produced by the Sara Lee Corporation. Behold furniture polish and Endust dusting aid were previously produced by Drackett. When Drackett was sold to S. C. Johnson & Son in 1992, these two products, Endust and Behold, were sold to Sara Lee, under license from Saramar. S.C. Johnson produces Pledge, a similar product to Behold, as well as other waxes.
William R. Johnson, now president of H.J. Heinz, was assistant brand manager for Behold at Drackett, 1974-1977.
The NIH household products database lists Behold as containing propane and butane and naphtha. Isopropane and butane blends are used as propellants for household cleaners.
Aerosol furniture polishes apply a thin layer of silicon oils, rather than the thicker, more durable layer of solid waxes. Fine furniture craftsmen warn that the silicon oils can penetrate through tiny cracks in the finish and make eventual refinishing very difficult. http://www.hardwood.org/display_article.asp?subID=26.
