cleaning tables/desktops

I need some advice.When I clean table tops and desktops they still look like they have smudges or fingerprints on them.Even though I clean them until my arm falls off I am using a general purpose cleaner with clean rag but it never looks clean

They are dark wood tables with a glossy finish that give me the most trouble.

Microfiber rags and a little lemon oil once you are done using your all-purpose.

I'm thinking in the other direction - try using some (mild) degreaser to clean the tabletops. It sounds like the tops are too oily as it is.

Good point!

My suggestion is more for prevention. It doesn't get to the source like yours does.

Are these residential or restaurant table tops?

Could be you are dealing with a polyurethane finish if they are commercially sealed/restaurant tables.

A bit more info would help. Let us know and more suggestions will follow.
