Lemon oil is a must in every home. An excellent furniture cleaner and treatment, lemon oil also has many other household uses that make it essential. An added bonus--most lemon oils sold as furniture treatments are much more environmentally friendly than aerosol or other furniture polishes and treatments.

Lemon Oil As Furniture Treatment

Lemon oil both cleans and polishes wood furniture, leaving a warm, satiny glow while also covering scratches and other imperfections in wood that has not been heavily lacquered or painted.

How to Use

One of the biggest benefits of using lemon oil as a furniture treatment is that a little goes a long way--making it both beneficial for your furniture and economical. Use lemon oil by applying a few drops to a soft, clean cloth, then buffing into your furniture.

What to Look for When Buying Lemon Oil

When purchasing lemon oil, look for a formulation with as few ingredients as possible. The only ingredients that are essential are mineral oil and lemon oil. Any wax or silicone additives are unnecessary.

Other Uses for Lemon Oil

Lemon oil is wonderful for cleaning and protecting wood cabinets in the kitchen, bathroom and every other room in your house. It will remove scuffs from floors and tarnish from silver, and is also an invaluable stainless-steel cleaner.

Where to Buy Lemon Oil

Lemon oil is readily available at most home improvement or general merchandise stores.
