Question

What is the best type of cleaner for urethane coated hardwood floors? I was told not to use water. Any recommendations from long-time hardwood owners?

Thanks

Kind of hard to wash anything without water, but water and hardwood floors don't seem to get along very well.

Instead of using a mop, use an old towel, a mixture of 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water. If you mix your cleaning solution in a gallon container and then pour onto the towel, you won't contaminate the cleaner and can use the same gallon for lots of cleaning jobs. Pour enough cleaner on the towel to get it wet and then ring it out into your kitchen sink to get rid of the excess water. The next part is not a lot of fun, but, get down on your hands and knees and wash the floor. Do a small area at a time and immediately dry it with another towel. This will eliminate streaks. The vinegar while being one of the cheapest is also one of the best cleaners for cutting through any household grease. It will also clean the drain in your kitchen sink.

You've not got clean floors, a clean kitchen sink and a few towels to wash. Not too bad for a little elbow grease and dents in your knee caps???
