Warning

  • Dry mop (like Swiffer)
  • Wood floor cleaning solution (see below)
  • Stick vacuum (optional)

Step 1

Before you begin, mix together this homemade wood floor cleaning solution. It's really easy to make and is safe to use on any kind of wood.

Step 5

Mop the floor using a back and forth motion. Periodically repeat step 4, spraying more solution onto the cloth. If your floors are really dirty or have a lot of groundwork to cover, switch out the cloth for a clean one about halfway through. (Or flip over the cloth and use the clean side if you only have one.)

Let dry... and let your floors shine!
