This is quite possibly the shortest, most succinct post I have ever written. But I sort of had to write it. Why you ask? Because I get lots of emails asking me about coconut oil furniture polish. More specifically – how I use coconut oil to polish my furniture.
I basically use it one of two ways. First I dust the furniture. Then I grab a soft cloth, dip it in the coconut oil, and gently rub the coconut oil into the furniture. A little goes a long way!
My second method is more of a furniture cleaner and polisher all in one. So you don’t need to dust first. Simply mix 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil with 1/3 cup of lemon juice. Shake vigorously and lightly spray your furniture with the lemon coconut oil. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Bam! Coconut oil furniture polish.
How easy is that?
Public Service Announcement – be sure to test the coconut oil on an inconspicuous area first. Also, not all coconut oil brands are created equal. Some don’t play nice with furniture. They leave a bit of a residue behind. I have found that Tropical Traditions Expellar Pressed coconut oil is a good brand to use on furniture. Plus it comes in a small container so you can just dip your cloth in and designate that jar as the cleaning coconut oil! Check out these two products – I think you will love them as much as I do.
And while you are in the business of checking things out – be sure to take a moment to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, if you don’t already know. Oh – don’t forget to check out how to use coconut oil on your vehicles!
