It really isn’t worth buying any wood polishing and cleaning products. Not only are they chemical or petroleum based but they are also much more expensive than the natural solution I am about to show you!
What you’ll need:
- lemon juice (1 part)
- olive oil (2 parts)
- cotton cloth
- dry cloth
What to do:
- Mix 1 part lemon juice with 2 parts olive oil in a jar and shake well. Mix only the quantity you need.
- Blot the cotton cloth with the mixture and rub into your wooden piece of furniture. It is recommended to follow the grain of the wood.
- Let it sit for a few hours.
- Wipe any excess away with a dry cloth.
Your wood will look shiny and healthy as you will have nourished it, just as you actually nourish your skin. And you will not have brought any chemicals into your home with this natural and cost effective wood caring method.
