Homemade Lemon Oil
For an inexpensive furniture polish: Mix one part lemon juice with 3 parts olive oil. Think salad dressing. Put lemon juice in food processor and start processing, slowly adding olive oil. It will last for up to six months in fridge and is nice smelling too. Much cheaper than prepared polishes!
I like certain pieces of my clothing starched, but I can't tolerate the fragrances of store bought canned starch. I use 2 to 3 teaspoons cornstarch to 1 cup of water. Mix it really well and put in a spray bottle. No chemicals to be spraying into the environment.
