Today's cleaner is a homemade wood cleaner.

This can be used on furniture or floors and smells great.

Ingredients:

Lemons
Olive Oil

Directions:

Mix equal parts lemon juice and olive oil together. Put into a spray bottle and shake. This mixture will start to separate as it sits, all you need to do is shake it to mix it up again.

**Note- Don't throw away the rinds of the lemons if you use real lemons. If you have a garbage disposal put them down it-great for freshening the disposal. You can also cut them up and put into distilled vinegar or make a lemon enzyme cleaner.

Is this a recipe you would use? Do you use lemons while cleaning? What do you use to clean your wood?

Fo you rinse the floor after? Doesn't get sticky the lemon? My hardwood floors look disgusting so I really need something that works, I'll try this out
