I made some homemade furniture polish for the first time today. Easy to make, costs pennies, and works like a charm. I used 1 cup of vinegar and 2 teaspoons of jojoba oil. I added some lemon essential oil to mine. It works great. Left the furniture shining and it smelled great.

Where do you get your jojoba oil, Lori?

I get mine from a health food store. I have ordered it from Amazon before, too.

Thank you. I found a recipe years ago that use olive oil but I didn't care for it. Will maybe give this a try. I found some wonderful stuff online for restoring wood. It kind of a cream. Natural ingredients and has kept me from having to refinish.

Denise, I'm always looking for ways to save money and be healthy doing it. The jojoba oil seems to do a much better job than the olive oil. I think it's because it is a lighter oil. I love the way it wipes off so clean without any trace of oil on the furniture.

Yes lighter would be better. The cream I have isn't for all the time dusting just when the wood needs a good cleaning and freshening up.
