Rose Platter: Four cleaning and polishing recipes

3lovers

  1. For soft woods use a mixture of one part lemon juice to 2 parts olive oil. Mix together in a bowl or glass jar and apply with a soft cloth.
  2. For bamboo furniture, use a brush or cloth dipped in salty water; the salt helps to keep the original colour. Mix together in a bowl or glass jar and apply with a soft cloth.
  3. For highly polished furniture, wipe with a chamois leather wrung out in vinegar and water and polish with a soft, dry, cloth.
  4. For carved furniture, apply cedar oil with a cloth and then use a soft, bristled brush to clean the difficult corners.

Most commercial furniture polishes may cause eye or skin irritation with direct contact. Many products containing various petroleum based polishing ingredients may aggravate pre-existing skin conditions, says The Safe Shopper’s Guide.
