As a child, one of my chores was polishing all of the oak finishes we had in our house along with the furniture. To this day, the smell of Pledge brings a flood of memories back.

I can almost feel myself standing in my childhood dining room with an old rag in one hand and a yellow bottle of Pledge in the other. The memories!

These days, we don’t use things like Pledge in our home. We prefer to make our own DIY cleaners or purchase natural cleaning products.

I posted a recipe for a natural furniture polish previously, but a lot of people were asking for a spray instead. I think a lot of us grew up spraying our furniture with Pledge 😉

So today, I bring you a recipe for a natural wood polish spray! If you’re already into natural living, you probably have all of these ingredients on hand, so let’s get started.
