  • 1/2 cup oil olive, jojoba, or avocado
  • 1-2 tbs vinegar white distilled
  • 10-15 drops lemon essential oils or a different essential oil (see notes)


  • Mix ingredients in a jar with a tight lid or a spray bottle

To use:

  • Shake well and dip clean cloth or spray. Wipe onto wood surface. A little goes a long way.
  • I like to rub it onto the wood surface and then go over it with a new clean towel to rub in or remove any extra oil.


With any cleaning product it's always good to test a small surface first to make sure it is compatable.
This product will clean also, but for really dirty surfaces I suggest cleaning the surface with a wood safe natural all purpose cleaner first than follow it with this furniture polish.
