Can I use coconut oil as a furniture polish on antique wood?
We own a house that was built in 1880 and has beautiful crown molding and wood decorative pillars and ceiling beams. Unfortunately, no one seems to have taken care of them in the last 10+ years. Their varnish has beaded up and crackled in spots and they need to be cleaned from grime building up. Would coconut oil be a good polish that won't damage the wood? What is a good way to clean off the tough grime on them? So scared to ruin this beautiful wood! Can post pictures if need be.
