How to Remove Cleaner Residue From Wood Floor


Residue from cleaning products like Mop and Glo can build up on your wood floor over time. This can cause discoloration of the wood and a cloudy appearance. Removing this residue is a simple but time-consuming project. With a few supplies and a whole lot of elbow grease, you can effectively remove cleaner residue from your wood floor.

Things You'll Need

  • Ammonia-free window cleaner
  • Dish scrubbing sponge
  • Clean damp towel
  • Spray a 2-foot-square section of wood floor with ammonia-free window cleaner, such as Windex.

  • Allow the cleaner to set for two minutes.

  • Scrub the section of floor with a dish-scrubbing sponge to remove residue.

  • Wipe the area with a clean, damp towel immediately after scrubbing, so the residue does not dry on the wood.

  • Repeat the process until the entire wood floor has been successfully cured of cleaner residue.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep all cleaning products out of the reach of children and pets.
