How to Polish Veneer Countertops
Veneer is a thin, wood material layered and glued on a surface. Veneer countertops dull and fade easily, which may be prevented by regular polishing and maintenance. Use an oil-based polish on your countertops to protect and restore their shine.
Mix the olive and lemon oils together in a bowl or container. The olive oil will protect the veneer and make it shine, while the lemon oil provides a pleasant scent.
Apply the homemade polish to a soft, lint-free cloth.
Rub a thin layer of polish over the veneer. Allow to sit for one or two minutes to absorb.
Remove any excess polish using a clean, dry cloth. Wipe all over to ensure a smooth, streak-free shine.
