Using Lemon Oil for Cleaning

Lemon oil can be used to clean almost everything, from hardwood floors, bathroom shower stalls to kitchen countertops. If the shining appearance is what you are looking for, lemon oil cleaning is just the right choice for you! Lemon oil is known to restore the luster and enrich wood furniture. Be it any type of wood, lemon oil acts as a powerful cleansing agent and protects the wood from drying out by retaining its lost moisture. It penetrates the wood and nourishes it to prevent cracking of the wood. Here are tips on how to clean wood furniture with lemon oil.

Wood furniture should be polished with lemon oil at least once every year. Take a small amount of lemon oil on a soft non abrasive cloth and apply on the surface of your wood furniture, rubbing gently. You can use a combination of lemon oil and an all purpose cleaner for cleaning heavily soiled surfaces such as painted or plastic-laminated surfaces, fiberglass showers stalls and glass shower doors. Spray a small amount of lemon oil on the surface before you spray it with the all purpose cleaner. The oil penetrates deep and helps in loosening the dirt. You will find it easier to clean the surface with the cleaning solution after treating it with lemon oil. Lemon oil is excellent for cleaning wood furniture, however, using lemon oil on high gloss veneers is not recommended. Lemon oil can also be used for cleaning the scuff marks on the floors. Take a small amount of oil on a soft cloth or a sponge and gently rub to remove the marks. Once you have managed to remove the scuff marks with the oil, mop the floors as usual.

Lemon oil works the same way on things made of stainless steel, silver and brass. Besides cleaning them, lemon oil cleaning gives them a brilliant shine which lasts for long. It can also be used for cleaning the surface of dishwashers and microwaves. It takes a very small amount of oil to remove the grease from these surfaces. When using lemon oil to clean fiberglass, make sure to rinse it well to take off any excess oil that is left after cleaning. This should be followed by drying the surface with a soft cotton cloth as it helps in retaining the shine on the surface.

The secret to getting the best results with lemon oil cleaning is to use a very small dab of oil. This is the key to getting a lustrous shine on the surfaces you use it on. So, go ahead, clean and refresh your homes with lemon oil!
