Default Bird safe cleaning

Hello everyone. So I have been reading the forum post bird safe cleaning products (BIRD SAFE SPRING CLEANING). I have lots of wood furnishing in my house. So I am hoping I can mix a solution into a spray bottle that would clean and also polish the wood. Based on this list I am not sure what would be the best option to go with. If anyone has any experience or tips it would be greatly appreciated.

If you dust the wood before polishing it, you shouldn't need anything to use anything else other than a furniture polish.

Quoted from the linked article:
A furniture polish: mix cup linseed oil, cup vinegar and 1/3 cup lemon juice. Rub into wood with a soft cloth.

Another furniture polish: mix 2 parts olive oil with 1 part lemon juice. Apply mixture to furniture with a soft cloth and wipe it dry.

Would you know by chance which one would be better? The one with linseed oil or olive oil?

Linseed oil has a much stronger odor (in my opinion) but is often used for cleaning/moisturizing wood furniture.

I think either would probably be fine and it is just up to personal preference.
