Here are a few examples of when and how to use this natural cleaning solution in your eco-friendly apartments in Foster City.

  • Those well-seasoned cast iron pans still need cleaning after every use. Make a paste by mixing olive oil with a teaspoon of coarse salt, scrub the pan with a bristle brush, then rinse it. Food residue has vanished!
  • Shine stainless steel and remove scratches from leather furniture with olive oil. Pour a bit of olive oil on a clean cotton cloth, and buff the appliance or furniture in circular motions.
  • Prevent rattan and wicker outdoor furniture from cracking by pouring warm olive on a cloth and rubbing it into the surfaces.
  • Polish and clean wood furniture with a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. For polishing, use 2 cups of oil to 1 cup of lemon juice, and to get out light scratches, use equal parts of both.
  • Other suggestions include using olive oil to get paint off your hands, clean dusty plant leaves, and lubricate squeaky hinges!
