How to clean wooden furniture with Evo oil
Wooden furniture often becomes dull over time. If you don't want to use commercially available products, you can pour a small amount of oil onto a cotton pad or cloth. Then simply wipe it gently against the wooden surface and remove the excess oil with a dry cloth.
If you want to polish the wooden furniture in a more thorough way you can use a solution of lemon and olive oil. To prepare it just mix equal quantities of these two ingredients. Once the mixture is obtained, it must be passed gently on the surface to be polished and then wiped with a cloth to prevent it from remaining greasy.
