I’m on a quest to remove all the toxic cleaners from our home. So when I needed to polish the cabinets, I decided to look for some natural solutions.
But first, let’s look at why I went hunting for a natural solution. Here’s your typical orange wood polish:
Look at all those chemicals! Just one of them, methylisothiazolinone, is known to cause irritation to the skin and eyes. That’s not exactly something I want to put in every room in my house!
A Google search turned up lots of recipes, but I wanted something simple, so I turned to coconut oil. I got a cheap jar, melted it in the microwave, grabbed a couple rags and tried it out.
It worked like a charm! It took minimal elbow grease and covered all but the worst of the scratches. (I’m embarrassed to show you the before, but I think it demonstrates how well it works nicely)
Its as easy as that! What natural solutions do you use around the house?
