Furniture polish is a great way to clean and shine wood, it’s also a great way to breath in some nasty chemicals or really irritate your eyes. Not to mention the irreversible damage that can be made to furniture if the wrong polish is used. There is no sense in sourcing those beautifully reclaimed pieces of furniture if you are just going to ruin them with some random chemical polish you picked up at your local hardware store.
That’s why I suggest creating your own eco-friendly furniture polish made from fresh lemons! It’s really easy to make, won’t damage your antique furniture, leaves a wonderful scent and most of all won’t hurt the environment.
Here are the instructions for How to Make Eco-Friendly Lemon Furniture Polish:
You Will Need:
- 5 Lemons
- Measuring Cup
- 1 Cup of Olive Oil
- One Spray Bottle
- Cut the lemons in half
- Squeeze out 1/2 cup of lemon juice into measuring cup, making sure to keep seeds and pulp out of the juice
- Pour lemon juice into spray bottle
