How to Make Your Own Furniture Cleaner and Polish

House Cleaning Plano

Land of Clean’s definition of buff.

Does your wood furniture need a house cleaning Plano style? If yes, then keep it natural. Here are a couple of ways to naturally clean and polish wood items around the house. All these formulas can be made at home and stored for future use.

Homemade Wood Cleaner for Very Dirty Furniture

This recipe for making a wood cleaning solution at home is simple yet effective. Mix together 1 quart of warm water with about 3 to 4 drops of any dishwashing liquid. Grab a soft cloth and dip it in the water. Wring the cloth until it is damp. Wash and rinse the furniture and allow to dry.

Recipe for Wood Polish and Dirt Remover

The tannic acid in tea is a a great natural wood cleaner and polish remover. Add 2 teabags and 1 quart of water to a pot. Place the pot on a stove and bring the water to a boil. Allow the pot of tea to cool down to room temperature. Use a small clean cloth to apply the tea to furniture. Dip in the tea and wring out until damp before applying to the wood. Afterwards, wipe the furniture, allow to dry, and then buff out with another soft cloth. After buffing you will be able to tell if the furniture looks fine or if you need to add some more polish to bring out a better shine.

Homemade Furniture Polish

Making furniture polish at home is very simple. Our Plano house cleaning team has three different types of polish that can be made at home.

  1. Add 3 drops of lemon extract to 1 cup of mineral water in a container. Shake the container before every use.
  2. Add 1 cup of olive oil to 1/4 cup of white vinegar in a container. Shake the container before every use.
  3. Buy some beeswax at the local hardware or drugstore. Using a cheese grater, grate about 2 ounces of the beeswax into a clean glass jar. Add around 5 ounces of natural turpentine to the jar. Close the jar and shake until the solution is mixed and dissolved well. If you are having trouble dissolving the mixture, place the closed jar in a bowl of warm water. Once done, apply to wood furniture. Every time you use this polish again you will need to remix in the same manner.

Remember to always apply with one cloth, then buff out with another clean and dry cloth. Let us know in the comments below which one works best for you.
