How to Make a Light and Lemony Dusting Cloth

How wonderful to make your
furniture look as clean and the wood as resonant as possible. This simple-to-make formula will give
your home a lovely lemon fragrance—lemon is known to lift the spirits—while the acid in lemon
juice works particularly well to pull dirt right out of the wood, leaving your furniture truly clean.

These fresh and clean smelling dusting cloths are great for your wood furniture. They are fun and lemony, and even make dusting a pleasure.


2 or 3 tablespoons lemon juice
A few drops food-grade linseed oil or jojoba oil

Place the lemon juice in a bowl, add a few drops of the oil, and saturate dusting cloth with the liquid. Use the cloth to dust with.

I know the article doesn't stipulate it but I ASSUME the cloths are designed to be used whilst still damp (otherwise the lemon JUICE could no longer do its job of "drawing the dirt out"). Hope this is correct - meant as an answer to several questions in the comments.
