Clean & Refresh Natural Wood
Jim describes a simple, effective way to clean and refresh all the natural wood in your home - cabinets, doors, paneling, furniture and more.
Mix equal parts of Boiled Linseed Oil and Mineral Spirits.
Use a Double Knot Steel Wool (00) to scrub it down remembering you are cleaning the surface and not taking off the finish. Use more mineral spirits to thin the mixture as you go.
Follow by wiping the wood down with a clean cloth.
: Do not store the steel wool or cloths in plastic - let them air dry.
