Homemade Olive Oil Furniture Polish

26K Views
This recipe for Homemade Olive Oil Furniture Polish is probably my favorite cleaning concoction to whip up at home. It's by far the easiest cleaning solution to make and has excellent results. While working through my KonMari Tidying list of spaces, I have also been giving areas of my house a thorough clean. I love this olive oil furniture polish and have had great results thus far.
Time: 3 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy

      If you use equal parts, put it on and then buff it with a soft cloth you won't have the sticky problem.

    When you are cleaning you are cleaning the finish. And this will dull the finish, ad lemon to it and it can etch the finish. It is also food grade even might go rancid.
