Furniture Polish Recipe

Furniture Polish Spray (Time: 3 minutes)


  • 1 Tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 25 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 16 oz spray bottle
  • Mix the olive oil, vinegar and essential oil in the spray bottle.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with water and shake well to mix.
  • Give the bottle a quick shake before using (olive oil and vinegar separate) then spray on a cloth or rag and wipe down your dusty wood furniture.
  • Vinegar cleans wood beautifully, just remember to wipe it off.  Sitting vinegar can damage some finishes.
  • Olive oil nourishes and shines wood.  If you’re working with old or dry wood and you’re looking to polish more than clean, increase the olive oil to 1/4 cup.
