This question wasn't sent to us -- but we're curious about it just the same.

One of our favorite green bloggers is trying to get a better shine on the wooden arms of this salvaged chair. She's used a blend of lemon juice, jojoba oil and a splash of white vinegar on them already (the top picture is the before, the bottom is the after).

We think the after looks pretty good -- but she's striving for perfection.

Vanessa at Green as a Thistle says this:

I don't know. I mean, I guess it looks cleaner — and there was definitely a lot of dirt that came off on the rag — but it's not exactly shining. Maybe I should put more oil? Or use olive oil instead?

What are your suggestions? Have you come up with an eco-friendly wood polish solution?
