I started to clear the table to give it a good shine with my trusty Pledge, only to find that it was empty. Only air was coming out. Uh oh.
I didn't have any way to get to the store without it being a hour long trip, so I decided to try and make some. I had read about it a few times while researching other homemade cleaners such as dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and glass cleaner.
I quick pulled up some bookmarked links and made some pretty decent furniture polish.
- One part lemon juice
- Two parts olive oil
Mix together. I dabbed a rag with the polish and then rubbed the rag onto the table.
But it was streaking a bit- so I did like the website suggested and wiped the table with a clean rag. The streaks went away!
However, I am not sure you need to wipe it down with a clean rag. It might just take some time to dry (like the glass cleaner). The reason being- when I did the chairs, I didn't wipe them down, and they were not streaked afterward. But they are also not as flat. So yeah- I don't really know.
But the polish did a great job. The table looks shiny and dust free!
