For a lovely, fresh-smelling, homemade furniture polish, just mix together a quarter cup of cheap olive oil

with the juice of 1 lemon

and apply with a cloth to your wooden furniture, if unsure do a patch test first, on an unseen area.  I use it on my old pine furniture, as it can dry out.  Just apply and let it soak in.  The lemon juice cleans the wood. and the oil nourishes it, and makes your room smell fresh and spring-like!


  1. Ooh this sounds like a good idea, I have loads of old pine in this house, I will try it. Julie xxx

  2. Must give this one a try, sounds much nicer than spray polish!


I love to hear what you think of my ramblings and value all your comments ... I will try and get back to you, but am sorry if I don't always manage this ... sometimes real life just gets in the way! Claire xxx
