I use 2 cups of olive oil and 1 fresh squeezed lemon. Same thing, works like a charm and soooo much cheaper! Go Green!

Works GREAT! I used lemon juice because I didn't have a lime and it worked just fine. My DH and I bought an antique dinning room table and china cabinet and it needed some cleaning. Pledge was expensive and still left the wood dull after it dried. Char, your polish did the trick!!! My furniture looks beautiful now! I will NEVER buy the commercial furniture polish again! Thanks for sharing!

At first I thought I wasn't going to be happy with this as my table was streaked and I had to go back and dry it - but then I realized what was happening was the old wax I had on it was coming up and as it dried it left a lovely shine with no sticky residue left behind. Works wonderful, much better than my expensive spray can - l'll be using this from now on.

I have a lot of furniture with very very dark wood. I would clean it with Pledge and always get streaks. I was a little scared to try this at first. All of my dark wood furniture is less than two years old. I had nothing to worry about. It worked great and now my furniture looks amazing!! I used lemon juice instead of lime juice. I didn't have lime juice at the time. It still turned out beautiful!! I will never use another kind of polish!!!

EXCELLENT!!!! I just bought a a 16 ounce bottle of Holloay House Lemon oil for $ 3.79 a week before I saw this yesterday~~~~~~~~ made some up last night just to try it out( I used lemon juice) I'ld gotten quite a few 16 ounce bottles of Crisco oil for $ 1.49 ( after coupons) using the crisco oil & a store brand lemon juice($ 1.19 for 32 ounces) I figure this cost about $2.00 to make up now I'll never be out..like how it works as good (maybe even BETTER) so a BIG thank you to you for sharing this with us
