A Quick Recipe for Making Homemade Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Hardwood floor

Tools and Materials required:

  • 1 teaspoon of castile soap (Olive oil-based hard soap)
  • 4 cups water and take some extra cups for rinsing
  • 4-6 drops of essential oil (peppermint, lavender, or  orange) – optional to add
  • A spray bottle
  • Mop with a microfiber pad

Steps for Making the Cleaner :

Step 1:

Take a spray bottle filled with 4 cups of water and add 1 teaspoon of castile soap to it. Now if you want then add a few drops of essential oil in it. Tighten up the bottle and shake it well to form a gentle mixture of these 3 things.

Step 2:

After making the solution in a spray bottle, test its effect before applying to the whole hardwood floor. Firstly spray the solution in a small area of your home and then rinse it with water. Then check whether this solution suits your hardwood floors without causing any damage.

Step 3:

To clean the entire hardwood flooring in your home, start working in the smaller parts like three square feet at a time. Stay careful to not spray much of this cleaner at once to avoid excess moisture on the wood floors.

Step 4:

Spray the cleaning solution, and then move the mop in back-and-forth motions to apply it to the wood floor. Then rinse and squeeze excess water out from your mop.
