Fix Wood Scratches at Home!
Home remedies for healing and maintaining furniture are great; they're cheap, easy to make, and eco-friendly! We've already shared a few polishing and waxing recipes, and several ways to use lemon juice in your home, so here's our newest discovery—how to fix scratches in wood using a walnut!

Leave the walnut oil that's rubbed off onto the wood on the scratch for 10-20 minutes, then polish the area of wood and the scratch should be gone! See this video we found for a demonstration on how this works--
