Yesterday I got the rest of the cabinet washed and I got the biggest paint scuffs off with a Magic Eraser.  The wood grain is now visible, even on some smaller parts that looked like they were just solid, dark brown.  I didn't get any pictures and my next job is to start oiling the wood (we all feel better after a bath when we put lotion on, right?)  I'm using a recipe that someone's grandmother gave her and she posted on Ravelry (Rav has everything!):  1/3 cup vegetable oil and 1 tsp bottled lemon juice.  You can also use olive oil, but Logan loves olive oil with every whisker of his being.  I don't think the cabinet needs a tongue bath.  I've mixed up a big batch of it and will start rubbing it into the cabinet, drawers, and underbelly.  I will also get some knitting done today that I can show on the blog tomorrow.

Food grade oil goes rancid, which is why it is not recommended to oil cutting boards. Mineral oil is available to the drug store, is cheap and does not go rancid. I would hate to know what rancid oil would do to that lovely cabinet. Cheers

You can also get non-food grade oil for cutting boards at places like Home Depot.

A bottle of lemon oil is not that expensive and does a wonderful job.
