There’s no need to buy chemical-smelling furniture polish from the store, as long as you have 2 natural ingredients on hand: lemon juice and olive oil. This simple recipe keeps furniture shining and smelling good and it’s perfectly fine for small kids and pets in the home who might take a nibble on furniture.
Simply add one part lemon juice to two parts olive oil and whisk to combine. If you’re juicing a lemon, make sure your juice is strained and all pulp and seeds are removed. Once the ingredients are combined, you can massage the mixture into your wood furniture with a soft cloth for a smooth, shiny finish.
Before you go on a cleaning spree, test this solution on an out of sight or inconspicuous area on your furniture to make sure it won’t be affected by the polish.
