Furniture Polish

I just ran across this recipe to make your own furniture polish.  I thought it was a great idea!  It came from an antique dealer so I am sure it works beautifully.  To me natural elements always work so much better that any of the stuff that comes in a bottle.

1/4 Cup white distilled vinegar or lemon juice
A few drops jojoba or olive oil
3 to 5 drops fragrant essential oil (optional)

When considering the right fragrance, choose an antiseptic essential oil.  Try sweet eucalyptus for a clean summer scent. And if you want to give your cleaner an unlimited shelf life, opt for vinegar (lemon can turn rancid).

So open those curtains, let the sun in and get polishing!
