2 Week Spring Cleaning Challenge

Natural Furniture Polish for Spring Cleaning

Day 4, Wood Furniture

With everything decluttered, your tabletops suddenly become quite visible. This is when the dust that has settled on them becomes just as apparent. Using an old t-shirt, wipe them off, moving in one direction rather than back and forth. This removes the dust without putting it back, leaving those tabletops and other wood furniture gleaming.


To add an extra glow to the wood, spritz the tables with a bit of homemade furniture polish once a month. A quarter cup of lemon juice or distilled white vinegar along with a few drops of olive oil or jojoba oil make a fabulous polish.
