Eco Wood Polish (Just 2 Ingredients!)

276K Views
I'm always looking for great eco cleaning products that are cheap, easy to use, and non toxic, and this homemade cleaner is the best furniture polish I have ever used. It's made out of liquid (fractionated) coconut oil and lemon juice.
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $6 Difficulty: Easy
Step 1: Gather Your Materials

I used liquid coconut oil and bottled lemon juice. The coconut oil is refined in a way so that it will never go rancid. I found lots of people online that just used olive oil, but i'm a big fan of fractionated coconut oil.
Step 2: Mix Your Lemon Juice and Coconut Oil

I poured 1 cup of lemon juice and 1.5 cups of coconut oil into a bowl, but pouring them into a bottle that you could close and use later on is also a good idea.
Step 3: Dip Your Cloth into the Polish

Make sure to dip the cloth through both the oil and the juice, as they will separate. If you put your polish into a jar, just give it a good shake before using it.

    Boiled linseed oil isn't really. The other ingredient usually added would be beeswax. And that's as a furniture or floor polish. It's chemically treated instead. Those ingredients are fab for a floor or furniture polish, but..not for a surface

    Never commented before but I'm thinking make enough for a one time use and avoid the rancid problem. I prefer to use organic unrefined. The smell is wonderful!
