  1. Thank you for this recipe for a safe natural and effective cleaner. I used Pledge before and always worried about the kids ingesting some of the residue, now it really doesn't matter if they eat some of it or not. I used this on my very thirsty dinner table and it worked well
  2. This was effective and very cheap to make because I bought XYZ brand olive oil at the discount store. Thanks for posting.
  3. I've been using this for years and I really think it works better than anything store-bought! I mix mine 50/50 and sometimes I add an essential oil. I love the cleaning and disinfecting power of the vinegar combined with the conditioning effect of the olive oil. This is the best!!!!!
  4. This is a great way to fix up wood in a hurry. I used it on some bookshelves and cabinets and then even got brave enough to try it on my grandmother's dining set. I just used a clean cloth to wipe it on, waited a few moments and then wiped off any residue. It cleaned fairly well but the real plus was the shine and moisturizing effect on the wood, especially the older, drier pieces; they almost sparkled and definitely had a lot more life in them. I was a bit worried about the oil turning 'tacky' or sticky feeling but have not seen any signs of that happening. The old window sills are next on my list ~ thanks so much for posting! 4.5 stars for sure. :)


I'm a Mom of four who loves to cook, and has a hard time sticking to a recipe! I also have a hard time giving my "recipes" to people because I don't use them much. I add and taste and add and taste. ;o) I have lots of animals, six dogs (no really, I swear!) three cats, two rats, two hamsters, three cockatoos, two senegal parrots, 2 lineolated parakeets and about a dozen assorted other birds. I sell real estate for a living and really enjoy spending time with hubby and kids. I always say that I'm not a very creative person but I've amended that. I've come to realize that creativity is where you find it and I'm incredibly creative in my kitchen! I can take whatever you give me and turn it into something really wonderful! It is my passion...
