    Did you sand or prep before applying the oil and vinegar mixture?

    I have deep scratches and water spots on a wood table will it work for those?

    Will this work on a front door? Can I seal the door to protect it from the elements after repair?

    Thanks for the advice; I will test it on an area where there isn't that much traffic and will ensure that we clean it up completely avoiding residues that may be slippery.

    Yes, but my hardwood floors need something, the finish has rubbed off in some places.
