How to Make Homemade Natural Furniture Polish

Happy Leap Day, Everyone!

Remarkably, in addition to this being February 29, which happens only every four years—it is also a 5 Saturday February, which happens only every 900 years, or something like that. All that makes today some kind of super special!

We’re looking at temps in the 60’s here in Colorado and let me tell you—Spring Fever (highly communicative in my neighborhood 😂) is alive and well! But I know better. I’m betting we have a lot more snow between now and Mother’s Day. And that’s OK. Our sun here is so powerful (I live at 5,280 ft. altitude), it melts the snow almost as fast as it accumulates. Simply amazing ❄️ ☀️

Some time ago, I got a request from EC reader Kelly for a homemade furniture polish recipe. She said that she uses a lot of it and it’s getting so expensive.

My first thought was, of course, to suggest she time her purchases for when furniture polish goes on sale, and then to stock up. That was fresh on my mind as I’d recently purchased a can of Pledge aerosol polish for $2.50 What a deal! Here’s how I did that:

I’d been harboring a $1 coupon and when Pledge went on sale for 2/$7, I used my coupon, bought one can and enjoyed a great bargain.

Kelly didn’t mention environmental issues in her desire to make her own furniture polish, but after doing some research on the matter, I became convinced that may be something all of us should consider—perhaps even more than the high price of quality furniture cleaners, polishes, and protectants.

From that research emerged three recipes for Homemade Furniture Polish … all 3 in today’s post!

You’re going to love this, and when you do would you consider sharing today’s post? That would be awesome!

See you there … xo m ❣️
