Furniture near the kitchen and dining table inevitably means dirty hand prints and inexplicably placed food stains. Though in our house furniture doesn’t need to be near a food source for stains. A simple wood spray cleaner does the trick of keeping things clean, without drying out the wood.
Not to brag or anything, but you’ll be pleased to see the ingredients are easily available, cheap, and good enough to eat. We’re not saying ‘use your salad dressing to wipe your furniture’, but we’re also not not saying that.
The wood spray cleaner is not only handy to have around for wood surfaces, but I also got more entertainment than I’d care to admit shaking things up to watch the oil droplets fly around. Apparently I need to get out more, but that’s a story for another day. Now moving on to the actual recipe for this wood cleaning spray:
Wood Spray Cleaner
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 quart warm water
Combine ingredients in a spray bottle. Spray onto wood and then dry with a soft cloth.
Please note this spray is more of a cleaner than a polish. It works well for painted or laminated wood that doesn’t need the same amount of oil.
