Cleaning Green DIY Furniture Polish - Vanilla Orange Scent

Cleaning Green! Vanilla Orange Furniture Polish

Supplied needed:
Bottle with lid
1 cup of light olive oil
1 medium sized orange
Vanilla extract or dried vanilla bean

If you wish to make a larger batch now so that you are ready to start the New Year off Cleaning Green, you can always double this recipe to suit your needs.

1. Begin by pouring the olive oil into your bottle.
2. Cut your orange into quarters. Squeeze the juice into a bowl and set the peels aside. You can then use a funnel to pour the orange juice into the bottle.
3. Take your orange peels and slice them into long strips. Add them to the bottle, pressing them down so they are fully submerged in the oil.
4. Finally, add 2-3 drops of vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon of dried and crushed vanilla bean.
5. Allow the mixture to sit anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The longer you allow it to sit, the longer the oils in the peels will have to release.

To use your polish, simply shake the bottle well and apply some of the liquid to a soft cloth. Before doing the entire piece of furniture (hard and non-porous surfaces only) test a small patch. Rub the oil onto your furniture in a circular motion and wipe clean with a dry cloth. This product will moisturize your wood, clean away dirt and debris, and leave a fresh citrus and vanilla sent. Plus, it will do all of this chemical free!

Give this simple recipe for Cleaning Green with DIY Furniture Polish a try and see how easy it is to get clean using less chemicals and less cash!
