DIY Furniture Polish

Especially since having a baby I am much more aware of the toxicity in the products we were using on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  Ranging from the lotions and makeup I wear, to our laundry and dish detergents, to the solutions we use to clean our kitchen table, counters, and sink it seems like there are less than desirable ingredients in almost everything…

Now I am always on the look out for ways to eliminate these household toxins and want to share what I recently came across from the well daily in the furniture department.  Along with being better for your family’s health and environment an added bonus is these natural cleaners are often already in your kitchen pantry and much less expensive.

  • Heavy Duty Option: Combine 3/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of white vinegar (3:1 ratio).
  • Everyday Use Option: Squeeze in a little lemon juice to 1 cup of coconut oil.

For super soft rags we cut up my husbands (and some of my) ratty old t-shirts.  They don’t scratch the furniture and don’t create waste like paper towels.

Another tip from the well daily is to rub a walnut on a scratch in your furniture and the oil fades the mark.  Or go with an organic brand, they recommend Guardsman’s Furniture Spray Polish.
