Shiny furniture just brings house cleaning to another level.
Cleaning the dust off the furniture and polishing it without leaving marks is just as hard as cleaning the windows. It’s the same thing.
But with the right products, it is effortless to get the perfect shine.
The first thing you need is the right cloth. You want to use a soft, preferably microfiber cloth. They’re not that expensive and very easy to find at supermarkets.
As for the dust cleaning solutions, micellar water is “dynamite”. It is designed to attract dirt, therefore, if it’s fit for your face skin, it will not certainly not damage your furniture.
To wipe the dust you can also use distilled, diluted white vinegar, and when I say diluted, I mean mixed with water.
After taking care of the dust, all you need to do now is to get that shine out.
To do that, you can use a little bit of olive oil and essential oils to make it smell good, or olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
To remove water condensation marks off of wooden furniture, you need to mix up equal parts of distilled white vinegar and olive (or other vegetable oil).
Here’s a natural recipe to restore wooden furniture:

- 1/8 cup distilled white vinegar
You can even make your own dusting spray. Here’s how:
- 2 table spoons of olive oil or jojoba oil
- 2 table spoons of lemon juice
