I’m a cleaning pro – you can polish wooden furniture with a cooking staple
HOME remedies encourage you to use up what you got before spending any more money.
One savvy woman proves basic ingredients can be versatile when it comes to using them both in and out of the kitchen.
Mallory Quisenberry is a sustainability expert and experienced up-cyclist.
She frequently posts cleaning hacks and thrift flips that show her using only recycled materials.
In a recent TikTok video, Mallory demonstrates how to polish your wood furniture without any chemicals.
The only ingredient is olive oil.
Anytime Mallory is restoring or repairing old wooden furniture, she will top them off with some olive oil.
Using a generic bottle from her kitchen, Mallory places a thin layer of the oil along the wood.
This leaves the base shiny and smooth.
Contrary to what some people think, the oil will not damage the wood.
According to US Vintage Wood, “it nourishes the wood and brings out its natural shine… you can use olive oil and let it act as a varnish.”
Mallory places a few drops of oil on a paper towel and spreads it around in circles on top of her piano bench.
No stains or splotches are left on top.
Some viewers left comments about the other oils they use to polish wood.
A few swore by mineral oil or coconut oil, while others explained that they were told to use cutting board oil.
One person disclosed that they use walnut oil.
Additionally, people suggested using olive oil to clean leather products that were scratched and stainless steel.
