Walnuts For Home Repair

“I went to my mom’s newly renovated beach house to be there for furniture delivery. Her only instruction was to make sure the delivery guys didn’t scratch her newly refinished hardwood floors. I subsequently was horrified when I realized that I had scratched the floor when pushing a table that I thought had furniture pads.
In a panic I called my mom’s BFF, who is the queen of natural remedies. She recommended that I try rubbing a shelled walnut over the scratch…and it worked beautifully! The nut's natural oils fill in and hide the scratch so it doesn't stand out so much. Phew! It's a fast, effective, and inexpensive trick to hide a scratch from hardwood floors. She said it even works on wood furniture.”
