Mahogany Magic Polish is made from mahogany seed hull charcoal, beeswax, virgin coconut oil, olive oil and vinegar. This polish produces a different variant of colors depends on the variation of ingredients and pattern of wood fiber. This polish also is safe and biodegradable. The researcher used mahogany seed hull charcoal mixed with vinegar used in soaking steel wool to produce black stain. Black stain is blended in olive oil, coconut oil and beeswax to enrich the polish. Vinegar is a natural preservative and it can also wipe out dust. Oil can smoothen and polish the wood or furniture. The researcher finds the mahogany seed hull in school as garbage so it is used in this research to recycle, reuse and reduce garbage. The researcher can also do further study to produce black stain from mahogany seed hull charcoal, to lengthen the life span of this polish and do experiment to achieve the proper ratio of the materials used in this research.
