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
- Olive oil
- An empty spray bottle
- Squeeze the juice out of a lemon.
- If you don't have a lemon available, pour four tablespoons of lemon juice into a small spray bottle.
- Mix three tablespoons of water and two teaspoons of olive oil with the lemon juice.
- 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.
