Frugal Friday: DIY Homemade Furniture Polish

With the onset of spring, it's time for spring cleaning.

Frugal Friday: DIY Homemade Furniture Polish

 

With spring comes spring cleaning. Doodads are dusted and curtains are cleaned.

In honor of the rigorous ritual, the DIY Life website offers an eco-friendly, homemade furniture polish as an alternative to store-bought polish.

Ingredients

  • Lemon or lemon juice
  • Water
  • Olive oil
  • An empty spray bottle

Directions

  1. Squeeze the juice out of a lemon.
  2. If you don't have a lemon available, pour four tablespoons of lemon juice into a small spray bottle.
  3. Mix three tablespoons of water and two teaspoons of olive oil with the lemon juice.
  4. Shake well.

The DIY Life website recommends making a new batch each time you want to polish your furniture, as the olive oil can become rancid.

Tip: Use a soft terry cloth to polish furniture instead of paper towels.
