Do your hard­wood floors lack lus­ter? Try this DIY po­tion for less than $50

Wood is a time-tested floor­ing op­tion that not only re­sists wear, it looks great too. No mat­ter what type of wood floor­ing you have, tak­ing some time to main­tain it will dra­mat­i­cally pro­long its life.

Ap­ply­ing var­nish is a good way to keep your wood floor­ing in good con­di­tion. While store­bought var­nish is ef­fec­tive, the chem­i­cals used to make it can be sus­pect. They’re not nec­es­sar­ily un­safe, but if you’re like me and don’t want to take any chances with your fam­ily’s health, why not try your hand at mak­ing your own var­nish from nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents in­stead.

I’ve worked with three dif­fer­ent meth­ods, of vary­ing com­plex­ity, that will en­hance your wood floor­ing’s ap­pear­ance and give it longevity.
