lets clean & shine those hardwood floors.
I shared this recipe in my blog series (floors) & the recipe fast became a fan favorite & a very popular Pinterest pin. Many asked me to add it to a blog post all by itself so they could find it easier & so here it is finally (you only had to ask a year).
Are DIY ideas as effective to kill germs, bacteria & grime like commercial cleaning products do?
And I say YES you bet they are! but I am guessing if you are still reading my blog you agree with me & have looked up all the info provided my DIY cleaning blog series (14 posts), as I always say, research, research, research! If you ask me I will very fast tell you DIY green cleaning is down right amazing, then add to that we get sick so very rarely so that’s a big clue to them no compromising our immune system & them working.
Note: These recipes safe for most hardwood flooring, spot checking would be best & only using a slightly damp mop on some hardwood floors probably would work better, & when possible reading the info on your flooring is advised, when in doubt try something else. Most of the spray cleaners on my blog & in my blog series can be used for cleaning up spills & spot cleaning hardwood floors.
DIY Hardwood floor cleaner (mopping) recipe
Ok let’s get cleaning:
Hardwood floors shine/cleaner (can be used on other flooring also): 2 cups vinegar (Apple cider vinegar for dark wood, white vinegar or light wood). 1/2 cup lemon juice. 1/4 cup of olive oil (option: use vegetable oil if you prefer) 20 drops lemon essential oil
Fill bucket with very hot water & either use a mop or a washcloth, & mop only with mop or cloth slightly damp, buff as needed.
