DIY Wood Cleaner & Polish
This video shows you how to make a homemade DIY wood cleaner and polish using only a few natural ingredients.
How It Works
White vinegar is acetic acid. Vinegar is a great cleaning agent. When you dilute white vinegar with water you get a very mildly acidic cleaning solution. For cleaning wood this solution works great.
The addition of an oil such as the grapeseed oil used in the video helps to polish the wood. You can use other natural oils you have around the house such as olive oil, or another carrier oil such as sweet almond oil.
Adding essential oils to the mixture gives your home a natural fresh and clean scent. Using citrus oils like sweet orange as I do in this video, or lemon oil will leave your home smelling clean and fresh.
- 1 Cup Distilled Water
- 1/4 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Carrier Oil (
Grape seed, Sweet Almond, Fractionated Coconut, etc.)
- 10 drops essential oil (Sweet Orange, Lemon, Cypress, Cedarwood, etc.) Buy essential oils here.
Combine and place into a spray bottle. Shake well before using. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe and polish the wood. You can spray directly onto the wood, or spray on the microfiber cloth and wipe on the wood.
