Mix the solution you wish to use to remove the polish. Mixtures will vary depending on the materials you choose to use. For instance, a mixture can consist of three parts linseed oil to one part turpentine, or equal parts water and vinegar. Be sure to wear gloves if working with chemicals or any corrosive materials.
Apply the solution to the surface of the furniture with a triple zero steel wool pad to scrub away polish or grimy build up.
Wipe clean with a soft cloth; you can dampen the cloth with warm water if you so choose. The cloth will add a bit of shine back to the furniture and will also remove any excess solution or small bits of grime or polish.
