Make Your Own Furniture Polish

This furniture polish is easy to make. You'll need turpentine, boiled linseed oil and lemon juice (or vinegar).


  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon boiled linseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon turpentine

Put all the ingredients in a glass jar. Put the lid on the jar and shake until mixed. Then apply to furniture using a lightly damp cloth. Dip the cloth in the furniture polish and apply to your furniture. Let sit for 30 minutes and then polish with a soft, clean cloth. Pretest mixture on an inconspicuous part of your furniture if you have not used this polish before. If you have a big job you can make a bigger batch but don't make more than you need, this mixture doesn't store well.
