Homemade Wood Treatments and Furniture Polishes

September 27 2018

Homemade wood cleaners and furniture polishes nourish and moisturize wood to maintain it for years. Beeswax seals the wood’s pores, making a waterproof protective barrier, and it is an effective cleaner and sanitizer. Lemon oil cleans wood, kills germs, removes stains, and protects. Olive oil is an exceptional furniture polish. There is no sticky residue, it works on treated or untreated wood, and it smooths scratches.

One should clean and apply initial layers in circular motions. For the final step, or any time one needs to polish wood, buff with the wood’s grain. Always use clean, soft cloths for every step.
