A while ago I discovered some walnut oil that expired. I shared on my Facebook page how annoyed I was that it had gotten pushed to the back and forgotten. One of my friends told me if I was concerned about using it in recipes, I could use it as furniture polish. What an amazing save! I have used my expired walnut oil as furniture polish and it works quite well.
How to Make Your Own Furniture Polish
I realize that not everyone has walnut oil sitting in their cupboards, so I have rounded up seven homemade furniture polish recipes, so you can find a DIY furniture polish tutorial that uses ingredients sitting in your pantry.
Homemade Furniture Polish Recipes:
If you don’t feel comfortable making your own furniture polish, I recommend Method Wood for Good Furniture Polish. I find it is very effective and has fewer chemicals than other leading furniture polishes.
Frugal Dust Cloth tip: Use old cloth diapers to polish your furniture. They are super soft and absorbent. They also are quite durable. I am dusting with 25 year old cloth diapers from my first child. They are faded and frayed, but they still do the job. If you don’t have any old cloth diapers on hand, you should be able to find some at your local thrift store.
