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.
