Some of the wood in my house is old. I have old wood floors that I’m pretty sure have seen 90 years of wear, I have a hand-me-down dining table that has seen its years, I even have door posts that had its finish stripped from water damage or something like that. I always thought I would need to resort to some sort of chemical cleaner or finish to restore my wood. Thankfully I was wrong!

You can clean and restore your wood floors, tables, door posts, cabinets, what-have-you naturally!

I tried this natural wood restorer on my water stripped window sills and door posts. I was blown away by the results! Just check out this picture!

Natural Wood Cleaner and Restorer Before and After

Once I had my wood restored to good condition, I just continued to use the natural wood cleaner for an easy maintenance cleaner. I also use it when I want my floors and furniture sparkly clean!

Natural Wood Cleaner and Restorer Wow! This works so well! (check the before and after pic in the post!) I always thought I would need to resort to some sort of chemical cleaner or finish to restore my wood. Thankfully I was wrong!

Natural Wood Cleaner and Restorer

Items Needed:

Spray bottle or jar
White Vinegar
Olive Oil

For everyday use:
Mix 1 cup water and 1 cup vinegar in spray bottle/jar and add in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix well. Spray directly on surface or rag and rub clean.
Make sure to occasionally shake your solution because as we all know: oil and water/vinegar separate!

For restoring wood or the occasional heavy duty polishing:
Mix 1 tablespoon vinegar with 3 tablespoons olive oil in a jar. Mix well.
Dip a rag into the solution and then polish and restore your wood.
This makes a very small patch so multiply it as needed. I have found that I usually do not need very much of this recipe when I’m restoring my wood which is why I made the recipe such a small batch.
