Shining your varnished wood furniture is not something you need to do all the time, but it will help to bring out the sheen of the varnish and provide one consistent look to your surfaces when you notice them looking dull or uneven. Rather than purchasing a commercial one, making your own is easy and works incredibly well. Use a cotton cloth for this application; oil is nearly impossible to get out of microfiber cloths. Also remember, don’t use this on unfinished wood surfaces, just wipe those with a dry cloth!
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
Mix all ingredients in a clean spray bottle. Spray onto a clean wood surface (this is not a cleaner, this is a polish), and buff in using an ’s’ pattern motion. This doesn’t keep for very long, so only mix up the amount you need for this particular application (feel free to adjust the recipe up or down, based on your needs).
