  1. Use flannel wood polish cloths.

Update: If making this solution, cut it down to what you can use in a month's time. The polish does get a bit funky after a while....but in the long run....still nicer than the commercial stuff. May 23, 2009: I cut the recipe down to 1/4 cup just to try it out and it worked wonders on my hard wood furniture. I put the ingredients in an old Tupperware...gave it a good shake and blotted some on to an old face cloth. Way cheaper than the commercial stuff and no heavy fumes to stink up the house. Kudos, Tish!!!

Works great, easy to make and cleans wonderfully! And I don't have that awful smell in the room and choking on fumes.

I mixed up a batch using bottled lemon juice, I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use fresh lemon juice. It work as well or better then purchased products. I used it on kitchen cupboards, bedroom dressers,tables. And it worked great on everything.I will never buy polish again with all the chemicals in them. I always have these ingredients on hand. Thank you for an earth-friendly polish recipe.
