Making Furniture Cleaner

When making homemade furniture cleaner, does it make a difference if I use distilled water or water from my faucet?

Thanks.

I've never made furniture cleaner, but I know a tad about water.
If you don't want any minerals deposited into your cleaning solution, you'd want to use distilled, which they're removed in that.

Minerals in our water are actually good for us to drink, but, for fabrics (for your furniture cleaning solution) I don't think you'd want those in there as they'd deposit on anything you used it on.

The minerals are ever so slight in tap water, but enough that we can see the scale build up on our faucets and anything tap water is consistent with.

Wood does not do well with water at all, but if you are making something and need a liquid, distilled would be better.

I know they are made from plastics (which makes me crazy) but I find microfiber clothes are the best dust catchers and do a nice job on my wood furniture without any chemicals.

I wash them in a load with other rags, for a short cycle, on cold with just a drop of Tide and they last for a long time. I know this is probably me rationalizing...but if I have to pick between plastics and chemicals in this case, I will pick plastics (the microfiber clothes as chemicals are so bad for us and our pets.

The clothes we have are old and still work. I feel I save money doing this in the long run.

I have never heard of using water. Some people use linseed oil.
