Try Using a Homemade Wood Floor Cleaner

Make your own homemade wood cleaners to save money as well as time. Comprised of common natural ingredients, these mixtures will leave you with wonderful wood floors that are not damaged by harsh chemical solutions.

Mopping Solution

After sweeping, mop your floor with a very simple cleaner made from a gallon of water mixed with ½ cup of white vinegar.

You can make another mopping solution from seeping 10 teabags with ½ gallon of water until the water is very strong. After cleaning, quickly rinse with water to avoid any unwanted stains.

Make a gentle cleanser for your floor using a gallon of warm-hot water and 2 tablespoons of baby oil or baby shampoo. The baby oil will also give your floor a nice finish.

Spot Cleaning

If you just want to clean a small area on your floor, mix equal portions of vinegar and linseed oil. Wipe the floor with the solution or buff it with a rag.

Degreasing Cleaner

If you need to degrease your floor, mix dye-free unscented dish soap into warm water. Spray greasy areas and wipe up quickly—letting this solution sit on your floor could cause potential damage.
