Homemade Furniture Polish Recipe
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup white vinegar
- 5 – 10 drops lemon essential oil (See our tips for buying essential oils here.)
- Spray bottle
NOTE: I am using a good quality glass spray bottle so it lasts for a nice long time. You can definitely pick one up at the dollar store but I always have trouble with those!
Add one tablespoon of olive oil to your spray bottle first.
Add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to your spray bottle next. Distilled white vinegar that is 5% acidic works fine with this recipe.
You will now be adding your lemon essential oil. I picked lemon because I love the smell but you can actually use a wide variety of oils in this recipe. Try grapefruit or even peppermint to mix things up.
Add five to ten drops to the bottle depending on how strong you want it to smell.
You will want to mix this well before adding the water. Add your lid and shake well. Then remove the lid and fill your spray bottle with water.
Then put the lid back on the bottle and shake well again. Remember that this is an oil/water mixture. You will need to shake it well each time that you use it.
Spray directly onto your furniture and use a microfiber cloth to buff immediately. Test all surfaces before use but this should work on most any surface in your home from high gloss finishes to wood and more.
