Homemade Furniture Spray Polish


In my quest for  a chemical free home,  I am making my own homemade Pledge.  I did some research, and decided that I was going to mix a couple of recipes together.  So here it is, my Homemade Furniture Spray Polish.





 Ingredients:

1 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup lemon juice
10 drops tea tree oil
5 drips lemon essential oil

Cut Lemons
Olive Oil and Water

Fresh Lemon Juice & Olive Oil and Water


Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake before each use.  I have added tea tree oil and lemon essential oil for their antibacterial qualities.  I figure with all of the animals in my house I wanted to make sure that the furniture is really clean.

Let me know what you think of this furniture polish.  It seems to work well on my dining room table.  I would love to hear from you.

Enjoy!!!

    1. Hi Angela,
      I went back and forth as to whether I should use vinegar in this with the lemon, or water. Water won out this time. I don't love the smell of vinegar. Let me know what you think.
