Do It Yourself: Natural Wood Cleaner and Restorer

Do_It_Yourself Natural Wood Cleaner and Restorer

Most of us own wood furniture, floors, utensils, or even decor; so we all know how hard that can be to clean and restore! I always thought I would need to resort to some sort of chemical cleaner or finish to restore my wood. Guess what? Not only was I wrong, but I also realized how easy it was to make a homemade natural one with only 3 ingredients!

This simple DIY beeswax polish will restore the shine not only to wooden furniture, but to bowls, toys and even trays. It brightens and preserves the natural beauty of both finished and unfinished wood.

You can save money on an expensive wood polish and make your own with just three simple ingredients. Olive oil adds moisture to prevent wood from drying out and cracking, beeswax helps seal the wood and protect the surface after cleaning, and lemon gives it that clean, fresh scent.
