This first one isn’t really a recipe, just a simple direction: Gently rub coconut oil onto your hardwood flooring.
• Coconut oil
• Clean, dry towel
Directions STEP 1 Clean the hardwood.
Do this before you apply any type of varnish; it’s possibly the most important step. If you don’t wipe away the dust and grime before varnishing, you’ll only rub them deeper into the wood.
To clean the hardwood properly, first vacuum and then mop. Next, wipe the floor with either a damp rag or a barely damp mop to pick up anything the vacuum and mop missed.
Rub the coconut oil into the corner of a dry cloth.
A little goes a long way.
Apply the oil to the hardwood in a circular motion.
Use a light hand. Don’t force or rub the oil in vigorously. Once you can no longer see the oil and the floor looks cleaner and shinier, move on to another section. Continue until you’ve covered the entire floor.
