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.

This stuff smells good enough to use for salad dressing! heeheh! I polished our oak entertainment center with this (I only made a HALF size recipe), and it looks like it did when it was "young!"

this works wonderfully well and is as efficient as any of the fancy stuff you can buy in a store. nothing like nourishing the table you sit at with the same food you eat:) just remember to give it a good whisk before using, and make them in fresh batches.
