Interior Hickory Wood Cleaning/Waxing - 2010 Classic

I have been thinking about cleaners and wax to use on the wood work in the trailer. There are so many products out there that I am baffled as to what might be the best products to use on the wood to keep it like new for as long as possible.
Sure I wipe them off when dusty, but is an oil needed? I don't want to ruin the coating that is on the wood by using the wrong thing.
I'd like to hear what you have tried/use on the Hickory and what results you see.

My favorite wax for wood furniture is Renaissance wax. Easy to use and does a great job.

We've used Murphy's Oil Soap for years.

I believe all the hickory is polyurethaned and sealed. Murphy's to clean is all I would do.

Don't use anything containing containing orange oil! It will remove some finishes nicely.

The main thing I was worried about is causing a problem to the wood by using the wrong products on it.
Your suggestions are right on mark.
Thanks for the replies.

Here's the link.

Thanks Rich,
Took your advice and just wanted to say that Murphy's oil soap is the way to go. The woodwork is clean and looks good.
