DIY FURNITURE POLISH

Have you ever used Lemon Pledge to polish your wooden furniture? They smell lemony, don't they. If you have run out of them and would like to make your own, you can! It is important to know what is in you polish solution and also having your own DIY ones are very useful.

Here is what you need:
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of boiled linseed oil
1 tablespoon of turpentine

Yes, these are the three ingredients for you to make your own Furniture Polish! Isn't it simple? Make more if you need more, or make lesser as an when you need it.

The method are: Find a tight fitting screw top glass jar. Place all the ingredients in the bottle or jar. Shake the bottle jar until they are blended. Prepare a clean soft cloth and damp it with cold water, but wring out the excess water as dry as possible. Dip the cloth in some of the mixture and use it to wipe your furniture, testing it on a hidden spot first.

This mixture must be used on demand or it gets a little gummy after a while.
