DIY Cleaning Week: Furniture
Tired of cleaning your home with petrochemicals and toxic products? This week we'll offer tips and recipes for banishing dirt and grime the natural way.
Tip #3: Shine Furniture With Natural Polish
Make a simple wood furniture dusting mixture with lemon juice and olive oil. Annie B. Bond, author of Better Basics for the Home: Simple Solutions for Less Toxic Living recommends using a wool dusting cloth "because static electricity draws dust to wool, and lanolin in the wool causes the dust to stick to the wool." The next best thing? A cotton rag made from an old t-shirt. When it's time for a shine, check out Bond's recipe for a polishing cream wax.
