They uses baby oil for bathroom counters and sink..I used it and it works great wonders.. Today I ran out of my wood polisher cleaner thing and used the baby oil gel I have and my table and chair legs look GREAT!! Lol just sharing!!

  • Lol.. massage oils work too! I spilled some of mine on my nightstand and noticed where I wiped it up the wood looked really pretty so I did the whole thing!

  • "Baby Oil" is nothing more than mineral oil - a petroleum bi-product and should not only never be used in your home but should NEVER be used on a baby or any other person...

    Now, if you want to use something on your floors, try coconut or almond oil.

  • SabrinaMBowen. I have tried those oils before and they really work wonders. I had an all natural oil for my hair and it spelled on my dresser and floor before and the shine was incredible lOl.

  • Well is the baby oil mineral oil? I would worry about the build up. However I know it works really well on stainless.
