Going Natural – DIY Furniture Polish

Furniture Polish

I picked this variation mostly because I love the lemony small of furniture polish.  Since this product does not have vinegar in it, I will keeping a close watch on it to make sure it doesn’t start growing things.  I have a feeling that this one will have a shorter shelf life because of the ingredients.  For this reason, it makes sense to make a small amount at a time.  This makes 4 oz. so a small spray bottle (I found mine in the travel sized toiletry section) works great.

1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
3 teaspoons lemon juice
10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
distilled water to fill bottle (or 4 oz)

    • I will be honest, I haven’t really thought to check not recently. I have only made it twice so used it for a long time between refills and haven’t had a problem. I do make a pretty small amount at a time. I will check when I am home (out of town at the moment).

    • Sorry for the delay in this response. I just checked my furniture polish and it shows no signs of spoilage…smells very lemony and has nothing growing in it (at least visibly). Without your question, I wouldn’t have even remembered to revisit this. When I replenished it last time, I just added to what was there, so I would say it is going on a year with at least some of the original polish.
