Homemade Furniture Polish

One of the many benefits of living on a well and septic is that it further encourages me to be careful about what chemicals I use. What I dump down my drains goes out into the septic system and very well could leach into our water supply. Direct accountability! I've been making a strong effort to replace all chemicals in our house. I know we won't get to 100%, but I'm going to get as close as possible.

I found a recipe for homemade furniture polish and had to try it. I've used it twice now and have no complaints!


The juice of one lemon
2 tsps of olive oil
3 tblspn of water

Shake often. Apply and wipe up excess with a soft rag.

Don't forget to store in a cool, dark place since olive oil can go rancid when exposed to light.
