Make Your Own Wood Cleaner

I realized that I was out of Endust and decided to try making my own wood cleaner. After checking out a few recipes I tried this one. I love that it's natural, safe and works just as good, if not better, than the stuff I usually buy.

What you need:
  • 1/4 cup mineral oil or olive oil (I used mineral oil)
  • 4 tablespoons distilled vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • spray bottle

What you do:

Mix all ingredients in a measuring cup.

Pour into a spray bottle.

Don't forget to label the bottle. Shake before each use. Place any unused cleaner in the refrigerator. (the lemon juice can go bad)

I used the cleaner throughout the house today.
Here's a before & after of a window sill with a water spot.










I'm so not going back to Pledge or Endust.

  2. What a great tip. I am starting to have my kids help me more around the house and this would be great for them to use as I don't want to use to many chemicals around them.

  4. Used it today on my Ikea wood furniture and the results were amazing. Thank you!!!

    P.S. I used some vanilla scented oil instead of olive oil to add some nice scent to the furniture and it worked fine
