How do you clean wood with vinegar?

Answer

Wood furniture is cleaned with a solution of 1 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of white vinegar. Pour the solution onto a soft cleaning cloth, and gently work it into the wood grain. Hardwood flooring is cleaned with a solution of 1 gallon of warm water and 1/2 cup vinegar. Use a mop or wipe the floor by hand with a soft cloth dipped in the solution.

To properly mop hardwood floors with vinegar and water, use a sponge mop with a spring wringer to ensure the excess water is removed prior to cleaning, as too much water can lead to floor warping and damage. Wooden cutting boards can be cleaned and deodorized with plain white vinegar. Spraying down the boards on a regular basis helps to keep odors at bay and naturally disinfects the surfaces.

To effectively clean woodwork, wall panels and wooden Venetian blinds, mix 1 cup of ammonia, 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda with 1 gallon of warm water. Wipe down the dirty areas with a sponge, and rinse when finished. This solution works well to remove buildup and debris without damaging the finish or streaking the wood.
