Mahogany Furniture Cleaning

I have a 1940's mahogany bedroom set. The wood is in good condition and has a shiny finish which has dulled a bit. How can I clean this furniture?

In my shop I use Naphtha - it's a high speed (fast drying) solvent for oil based paints. It's available from any good paint store.

It will cut grease, oil, dirt and wax without harming the finish. It is highly flammable, and should be used with caution - a little smelly, too, but it dissipates quickly.
