Oil and Vinegar to Clean Wood? Yep!

Want to know a cheap and easy way to clean wood furniture? Oil and Vinegar. I got the idea from Miriam at Miss Mustard Seed.
I bought a cabinet from the thrift store that had definitely seen better days. But I could see that the wood was in decent shape, and there was no way I was going to be painting that beautiful piece.
It had a few places where there were water marks, as well as lots of dust and dirt that had accumulated over the years. I mixed up some oil and vinegar and got to cleaning.
Click on the link below to see how gorgeous this piece turned out. It is stunning. And after all this time in my son's room, it is still beautiful. The water spots did not return, and the glow of that wood is stunning.

    That did you use to scrub or wipe with?

    That will work as long as you don't have any grease or buildup but if you do just use the Rejuvenator on it. I will put a picture on for you to look at. Its a great cleaner and oil in one that brings back the original finish and leaves no oily residue so it lasts for years. I sell antiques and used furniture and I use it on Everything. their website is www.thevictorianhouseproducts.com. Hope this helps someone.
