Lemon Scented Furniture Polish

Back in the olden days, before Mr Sheen and O'Cedar, homemakers kept their furniture gleaming and in tip top condition with a simple homemade furniture polish. You can get the same shine with this simple furniture polish you can whip up in your kitchen.

First, take a spray bottle and wash it thoroughly in hot, soapy water. Rinse in hot water and let it air dry (make sure it is absolutely dry). Then mix together 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice and pour into the bottle. Give it a good shake to mix.

To use, take a clean cloth and spray with the polish until it is just damp. Using circular motions, polish your timber furniture.  Respray the cloth as needed (it takes three sprays to polish our TV unit). Take another clean cloth and buff to a shine, again using circular motions.

Your furniture will look lovely and your home will smell lemon fresh.

This polish will keep well if stored in a cool, dark place. Just shake the bottle well to combine the oil and lemon juice before using.
