TIP: Naturally Repair Wood With Vinegar and Canola Oil Posted January 12, 2014 8:50pm UTC by designer How to make: …Use 3/4 cup of oil, add 1/4 cup vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar) mix it in a jar, then rub it into the wood. You don’t need to wipe it off; the wood just soaks it in!
Does it have to be canola oil? Can it be substituted with another oil perhaps?
That is my question, too. Will other oils work?
l huile de canola ses simplement de l huile de colza voila pour ceux qui veulent savoir
you can use any oil, but olive or walnut oil works best
will it work on Hard wood floors???
Will this work on hardwood floors?
Ich nehme für Holz immer pures Leinöl. Hinterher sieht alles aus wie neu.
We keep walnuts on hand to eat and I simply take a ‘larger’ piece out of the jar and rub it into a grazed wood area ~ does a remarkable job in covering scratches without having to mix anything!
Don’t see how it could possibly remedy the kind of scratches and gouges shown in the picture… I’m thinking they’re reversed.
This stuff works! I used extra virgin olive oil and Heinz white vinegar mixed approximately two table spoons of oil and one teaspoon of vinegar and stirred them together. I placed a rubber glove on and dipped my finger in the mix and rubbed gracefully on the surface scratches and the magically disappear before my eyes!! Thanks for the tip! I went to town on all my natural wood furniture. I even touched up my 1920’s Knabe Baby Grand Piano!! My tip, don’t be shy on the amount you apply. I don’t know what the vinegar does but I know for sure the oil gets soaked up by the exposed wood and darkens the scratches allowing it to blend in with the surrounding area.
