Is your wooden furniture (or your wooden cutting board) looking a little lackluster lately? Fear not… coconut oil comes to the rescue! This coconut oil wood restorer makes wood shiny and clean to keep it looking like new for years to come.
I love, actually scrap that, I’m obsessed with DIY cleaners. Actually, there’s nothing that excites me more than finding a DIY version for something that I already know and love, and even better if it’s for something that I wish existed but can’t quite find in the supermarket.
This coconut oil wood restorer is my latest experiment. I love to use wood cutting boards, and we also love our wood dining table and our wood chairs. Actually, almost all our furniture is made from wood. It has also been with us for quite some years, so from time to time there’s something that starts showing it, so I always wished that there was some sort of product that could vanish those years of wear and tear.
I searched the whole supermarket for a store-bought solution and nothing was quite good. Either it was too filled with crazy chemicals, or it was completely useless. I also tried the walnut hack and it was not good. So when a friend told be about using coconut oil I knew I had to try my hand at it.
This coconut oil wood restorer is actually super simple to make. You only need coconut oil + lemon juice (yes only 2 ingredients!!) and the result is mind blowing good! It literally takes years off your wooden furniture! The coconut oil and lemon juice also smell incredibly great so you can feel in your own little Caribbean getaway while polishing (which in my opinion makes the process much more enjoyable).
To use it just dip a cloth in the mix and rub a thick coat in your furniture (it’s the best for cutting boards) let it sit for 2 minutes and then polish it with another cloth.
Best thing ever!
