In the late 60’s I spent a summer in northern Wisconsin at my cousins house.
One day my Aunt came home from work and before doing anything else took a big glob of mayonnaise and plopped it on a cherry drop leaf table and proceeded to polish the table with it.
After which she stared at the table as if mystified that a glob of egg goop didn’t make it shine like new.
I’ll never forget this, especially since when I got home and asked my ma about it she told me I might be mistaken as to what I thought I saw my Aunt use as a polish.
My Aunt died in '73, and as far as I know she is still dead so I can’t ask her.
Is/was/has mayonnaise ever been considered a viable polish for wood?
Or did my aunt take the brown acid?
