Best treatment for wooden furniture

Spray-on furniture polish isn’t always the best thing for your treasured possessions – it’s fine and handy for a quick fix, but in the long term layers of silicon can build up and become sticky.

If your wooden furniture looks a little dried out and in need of TLC, a lovely treatment is two parts olive oil and one part lemon juice.

Apply the tiniest amount, rub in with a soft cotton cloth and buff with another clean one.

Do this only twice a year.
