This has been going around the internet lately so I thought I would post it.  It seems like my wood furniture always end up with scratches on them.  I’m going to try this.

    Does it have to be canola oil?

    • admin says:

      I researched several articles on this and some say you can use any vegetable based oil and some say that canola is lighter and therefore better. You can search on google and find many article of using vinegar and canola oil. I saw some that suggested the use of olive oil but that would be very expensive. You could try a small area using whatever oil you have on hand and see what happens. I used to refinish furniture and know that wood can get very dry when the finish is gone so I assume any type of vegetable oil would help to re-hydrate the wood but since I have never tried it, I would not want to lead you astray.

      I would love to know if it works for you or if anyone has any other great suggestions on this.

    I tried it today (Canola oil and white vinegar) in my kitchen. Years of bumping the “pots and pans drawer” left scars on the edge of the drawer, and we had lots of scrapes on dark-stained doors. It worked very well on almost all of the scratches. I was amazed. However, I needed to go over it with a clean, dry towel afterwards, because there was a noticeable “shiny spot” where I applied the solution.

      Awesome! It almost sounds to good to be true. I have an antique dresser of my grandmothers that I’m going to try it on. It’s one of those things that you don’t want to go wrong so I’m so glad to know it does a good job. Thanks for the tip about using a clean towel afterwards.
