What does my furniture polish really contain??

One of the traditional home cleaners that is top of my "nasties" list is furniture polish. I know it can be a challenge to find the time to fully research everything we use in our homes, I think if we tried to do this it would take hundreds of hours! I am hoping I can provide you with a little background information to help make informed decisions on what products to choose for a clean home without adding toxicity to your environment.
This stuff is just nasty, the combination of ingredients when all you want to do is add a little shine to your furniture is not worth this toxic mixture. Rather than this stuff try a damp cloth for an adequate clean.
If you want to ramp up the shine, now obviously I am a little biased in saying that my Smith & Sayer furniture polish is fabulous :) It has simple, safe and effective ingredients and every one of them has a job to do. The addition of locally produced Kricklewood Farm Sunflower Oil gives your furniture a wonderful shine without overloading the surface.
If you do want to take a little more time to research what the ingredients are in the products you use, one of my go-to resource is the Environmental Working Group's Guide to Healthy Cleaning, they independently rate the ingredients so you can choose what to use.
Happy Polishing!
