How to Clean Wood Furniture With Lemon Oil


Whether you have a wooden desktop, cabinet, coffee table or chairs, clean and shiny wood furniture looks terrific in a house. Lemon oil helps protect the wood, along with giving it a nice and beautiful look. Lemon oil is a great cleaner because it works on unfinished wood furniture as well. Lemon oil can help remove stains on wood furniture, along with preventing cracking of your wood. It also gives your furniture a nice scent.

Things You'll Need

  • Feather duster
  • Vacuum with attachment
  • Lemon oil
  • Dry rags
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Dust off the furniture with a feather duster. You can also use a vacuum with an attachment if you want. If you're trying to clean a wooden desk or a cabinet that's been down in your basement for a while, you'll probably need a vacuum, especially if it's covered in cobwebs.

  • Apply 1 tbsp. of lemon oil to a dry rag. Don't use too much oil. Wipe the entire furniture until it gives you that nice and shiny look.

  • If you have any watermark stains on your wood furniture, sprinkle some baking soda and a little salt on the stain. Take an old toothbrush, dip it into warm water and brush out the stain. Wipe over the area with lemon oil.

  • Use actual toothpaste as well to remove stains. Put a little toothpaste on the stain, then brush it with the toothbrush. Apply the lemon oil afterward.
