Frugal Friday: DIY Homemade Furniture Polish

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


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.


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


  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.
