Homemade Olive Oil Furniture Polish

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
Note: This recipe is best for furniture with an oily, non-glossy finish. Do test on a small section of furniture first as it may leave a cloudy haze on fine antiques, depending on the finish.
2 c. olive oil
1 lemon
Whisk together olive and the juice from 1 lemon. Using a clean microfiber or polishing cloth, gently rub into furniture. Rub less gently for a true shine!

      I use this and it gets fuzzy and molds after a few days here in Colorado. I make a small one day batch 1/2 c olive oil and 1/2 lemon to clean and polish. It works great!

    I just used equal parts olive oil and vinegar to hide where my daughter scratched her name into my secretary desk. It worked like magic.

      I tried this using the vinegar in place of the lemon and it turned out so much better than the lemon.. My furniture looks amazing!! Thanks!

    I use vinegar and olive oil, too. Works great! I used a recipe I found on Pinterest, there's probably thousands. I'm going to try this, too, my hubby always complains about the vinegar smell. He'd like lemon a lot better! :)
