Happy Tuesday! We had the most wonderful snow day yesterday. The kids and I have been not-so-patiently waiting for snow since November! We got about 6 inches of the most perfect, fluffy snow. It was so fun to play in. It wasn’t great snow for building a snowman but we did get the sled out and my husband pulled the kids around behind the quad. Parker proclaimed it THE BEST DAY EVER! Hopefully it doesn’t stick around too long though. I’m a one day a year snow person 🙂
Today I want to share with you an easy DIY homemade wood cleaner/polish/oil. Whatever you want to call it! I had some ladies over to my house last weekend for an Essential Oil Make & Take and several people commented on how great our dining room table looked! I’ve been making a conscious effort to ditch all the chemical cleaners in our house. Receiving my Young Living starter kit was the best decision ever! You can make this cleaner without essential oils but I wouldn’t recommend it. The oils make it smell so great!
DIY Wood Cleaner
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup olive oil
20 drops of essential oil
Combine ingredients in glass spray bottle and shake well. Spray on wood surfaces and wipe with a cloth. I use old baby burp cloths because they are soft and can be washed over and over.
*Shake well before each use.
There are several essential oils that would work well in this wood cleaner. I used orange but you could also use lemon, pine, cedarwood or lavender. A combination of lavender and cedarwood would be heavenly!
You don’t need to use this cleaner often. I find once a week or every other week to be enough.
This was one of the easiest ditch and switch projects. The fragrance alone in standard household cleaners is so bad for you. They contain who-knows how many chemicals because they are unregulated. I feel good using this DIY wood cleaner around my kids! Have you made the switch to non-toxic products?
