Queen of Clean: Caring for wood furniture

Posted: Updated:

Keeping your wood furniture looking like new
One of the best ways to keep your wood furniture looking new is by not using products that contain drying silicone, like many products you buy at the store do. Instead, you can easily make your own dusting spray, furniture polish and remove excess furniture polish smear from furniture with something you already have in your pantry.

Removing excess polish from wood furniture
Go to your pantry and pull out your box of cornstarch. Sprinkle it on lightly and buff with a soft cloth. Work in a circular motion and then work with the grain to finish. Vacuum up cornstarch. To keep furniture shining between polishing it, dust with a lambswool dust mitt (queenofclean.com).

Dusting spray
Combine in a spray bottle:
1 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. essential oi (this is optional)

Spray lightly on wood furniture and buff with a soft cloth.

Cleaning and conditioning furniture polish
1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white vinegar

Put in a glass container with a tight lid. (A clean jam or jelly container works well)

Shake prior to each use. Apply a little and buff in with a soft cloth. Buff with another cloth. Polish will last one year in your cupboard. A little is all you need.
