    This looks fantastic - I've seen all the other ingredients before, but what is and where do you get "boiled linseed oil?"

    Any hardware store that sells paint should have boiled linseed oil.

    When you say "3-4 drops" of household ammonia how much of the other ingredients are you making up? Thanks!

    Thanks for this recipe Glenn. My DH bought me the ingredients today and I am hoping to start cleaning up a sewing machine case tomorrow.

    For those in the UK who may be interested:-
    Mineral Spirits = White Spirits; and denatured alcohol = methylated spirits.

    This is great information. We have an old hutch that we dug out of an old barn and gave it to my daughter, after cleaning it up, however, apparently mice had gotten into the drawers, and my daughter is allergic to rodents. (Apparently the dander from the mice have gotten into the wood over the years. The insides of the drawers are unfinished. Wonder if your method, maybe solution one, would work for cleaning the drawers, or do you or anyone else know of any other solution for getting rid of the allergens left from the mice. The hutch is beautiful, but unuseable the way it is.

    Let God be your quilt and wrap you in His loving care.
