This Homemade Wood Floor Cleaner uses simple household ingredients to get your spring cleaning started.
The last couple of weeks have been a little rough around my house. We’ve been knocked out with the flu and it has been making the rounds from my husband to my daughter to me (somehow my son managed to avoid it!). We’ve been slowly getting back on our feet and the first thing I wanted to do when I started feeling better was to give the house a deep cleaning. It helps that the weather in Maryland has felt like spring. Something about the first warm weather after a long winter makes me want to throw open the windows and start spring cleaning!
In my house no one gets out of cleaning. The kids are old enough to help out now and even my 4-year-old knows how to grab a mop and give the floor a once over. With kids helping out and small dogs that love to “help” I started making my own cleaning products so I could feel good about what goes into them. My homemade wood floor cleaner along with a Wonder Mop works great and leaves my hardwood floors squeaky clean. The Wonder Mop is pretty amazing. It has Microfiber GRIPSTRIPS™ that lift up to 20% more dirt and the power wringer squeezes out more water from the mop head so the floors dry faster. That’s pretty important when you have have dogs and kids who always seem to need to walk over freshly mopped floor.
The Wonder Mop can be used on all surfaces and my favorite part is that the mop head can be washed up to 50 times! I love being able to reuse things! It’s definitely one the top tools in my spring cleaning arsenal.
A good mop needs a good cleaner and I love this homemade wood floor cleaner. It is a simple mix of everyday household products. In a large mop bucket I combine 1 gallon of water, 8 tablespoons of dish soap, and a 1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar. The mixture gets a gentle stir to combine the ingredients and it’s ready to go. It’s safe and gentle enough that I can feel totally comfortable having my kids clean with it.
