Also, a little goes a long way. I have a small jar that I put my recipe in and apply it to my dust cloth when I want to moisturize and condition the wood. I use a feather type duster in between these times.
Not only is it great for all your wood furniture, it's great to use on those kitchen cabinets and any other wood work you may have in your home.
Furniture Polish Recipe
It's so easy and affordable to make natural furniture polish that you can use on all your wood!
1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C White distilled vinegar
*20 drops lemon essential oil or 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice
*If you choose the fresh lemon juice, the mixture should be kept refrigerated.
Mix well and apply to a clean, soft cloth and you're ready to go!!
To apply, rub the polish in the same direction of the grain allowing the wood to absorb the polish.
Be careful not to apply too much, if you do, just buff it until absorbed.
To Remove Rings and Scars:
Home Remedy - Rings - Toothpaste! White (non-gel) toothpaste works best. Rub generously over the ring and allow to sit for a few hours. Wipe off the toothpaste and the water mark should be gone!
Home Remedy - Scars - Crayons (wax) Yep, that's right, choose the wax crayon that's closes to the color of your wood, (you can use a couple different crayon colors) and just color it in. Go over the scratch rubbing with a dry part of your waxing cloth and if you need to, repeat the process.
You can also buy ink stain pens at your local hardware store to stain and fill in those scratches.
