Clean and disinfect wood floors using a homemade non-toxic cleaner.

Wood floors are the perfect meeting ground for dirt and germs that are tracked in from outside. To properly clean and kill the germs on the wood, a disinfectant may be used. Homemade non-toxic cleaners offer a less harmful substitution to many commercial home products and are often less expensive. Use a few common household items to create a non-toxic wood floor disinfectant cleaner.
