    Depending on the color of wood you can use a furniture polish with stain already in it, or a little coconut oil.

    Yep. I'll just go buy some Old English brand furniture polish that matches my wood. But... he really did a number on the corner of my desk trying to dig out his toy. Grrrr!

    Temporarily... I'm going to just put a coaster and a glass of vodka over it. icon_razz.gif

    Good Plan. But hey......

    If you take a thwack of coconut oil and polish your wood furniture-it repels dust. For like 6 weeks. icon_eek.gif icon_cool.gif I know!!! I read about it on pinterest, gave it a shot and hot damn, it's true. You don't have to dust for like 6-8 weeks, and I live in the middle of farm country! I told IB about it, and K9 so they can both vouch for it.

    Really?! Does it make the furniture smell like coconut, or build up over time? I think I need to try this...there's way too much dusting going on here. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I hate it, too! Sometimes it is just easier to burn the house down and collect the insurance money and start over.

    I don't like dusty ceiling fans.

    No coconut smell, and no build up. I don't melt it, I just take out a large tablespoon, put it in a bowl and go to town with a dedicated dust cloth. I use the "regular" for frying and dusting-wow that looks weird together. I use the extra virgin coconut oil for eating and skin care.

    I don't know why it works, but coconut oil repells dust. Only having to dust every 6-8 weeks..... icon_cool.gif

    It would probably be good on wood blinds, too. I HATE dusting! That is DH's job! I would rather scrub a house full of toilets than lift a dust rag, swiffer, or feather duster! I think that goes back to childhood. Dusting was my "job". Everyday before school, I had the pleasure. Then, on Saturdays, I was supposed to take everything off the end tables and dust them before I went to my Grandmas house and clean for her. Where I didn't just dust, but did EVERYTHING! But, it was a good lesson in life.

    yup it helps to cut down on the dusting...BIG TIME! As for the fans...once I finish with using the rag on whatever piece I am applying the coconut oil to I just use the rag as is to go over the fan blades. There's just enough left in the rag to work on the blades & is sure does help cut down on the need to do them often. Di's right no odor from the oil on what ever you use it on.

    Potsie, depending on the color of your desk there are several options to cover scratches, rubbing with a shelled walnut half will cover some scratches, if it's a darker brown shoe polish will work also, but bear in mind it is a wax base so using an oil based polish afterwards won't work over the polished area. Also you can get touch up furniture 'sticks' in many colors that are meant to cover scratches.

    it can be found in most grocery stores & be prepared for some sticker shock...it's pricey....the small jar is 15oz of what looks like crisco....@ $12 the brand is Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil....& if you do the digging on the net you'll find that you can cook with it, eat it as is, use it on your skin...the list goes on...so I deem it well worth the investment.
