Our mother had one of these when we were a kid, and we were recently tipped off to it again by Teresa:
"It's such a great little tin -- worth the $4.99 I spent on it -- and it does work on most scratches."
Tibet Almond Stick is a "tightly rolled cotton stick, soaked in a secret family formula" which rubs on and quickly hides the raw wood that is revealed by a scratch to the surface. Manufactured by the Zenith Chemical Works since 1908, it trades on the fact that almond meat was often used to hide wood scratches in the old days. The Tibet part just sounds made up to us!
