Whether as a flavor, a scent, or a body care product additive, trust orange to brighten things up. But unknown to many, orange--in its oil form--is also a highly effective wood polish and cleaner.
Wooden furniture and surfaces can have a stale and musty smell when old and not properly maintained. Orange oil can best provide a contrasting and pleasing effect not only on the wood’s smell but on its appearance.
Unlike other citrus oils in the market, orange oil doesn’t contain mineral spirits, making it a 100% natural, environment-friendly, non-toxic, and non-combustible degreaser.
Orange oil-based cleaners offer a ton of proven benefits.
Orange oil is obtained through the process of cold-pressing real orange peels. There's a lot of commercially-available orange oil-based wood cleaners, but you can also try to make your own.
The following are quick and easy steps to make an orange oil-based cleaner.
As a wood polish and preserver, beeswax is not just a buzzword that comes and goes. It simply works - minus the toxins.
Beeswax wood polish products are not a new discovery. There was a time years ago when all wood products were made of pure beeswax. But concerns on its sustainability and the need to mass-produce products sans the beeswax paved the way to cleaning alternatives ridden with harsh chemicals.
These days, the concept of "green cleaning" is increasingly becoming a way of life as more and more people become aware of most cleaning chemical's harsh effects both on our health and the environment.
