Here's an easy, all-natural way to freshen wooden work surfaces with household ingredients.
You'll need a big handful of salt, which can be coarse or fine, and one lemon, cut in half.
Sprinkle surface with salt, and scrub it with the cut side of a lemon half. Repeat if necessary
You can use salt with vinegar and a plastic scrubber, but the smell of lemon is nicer.
Why It Works
The salt is an abrasive that scours the wood, and the lemon dissolves grease.
