This solution is for heavy duty cleaning. Washing soda can be found in the cleaning aisle of your local grocery store along with the detergents and other cleaning products. Washing soda is not baking soda. I use Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda.

A BIG thank you to the Day care lady!!! We clean homes for a living.
Needless to say, we come across some GUNKY floors. This floor cleaner has replaced our expensive professional cleaner. Not because
of the expense but because it works better. Plus, its alot less toxic! WONDERFUL FLOOR CLEANER!!!!

Great! I used this on my porcelain tile floors with my Hoover FloorMate. It took away the last-nights-dinner smell from my kitchen, and my tiles feel clean on my bare feet!. The FloorMate puts the dirty water in a separate tank and it was gross and dark, so you can tell it worked well (I live alone and never wear shoes in my house---so I was surprised how dirty it was). Next time I will probably use less dish soap, more vinegar, and maybe a drop of essential oil for a fresh smell!

Today was the day I pulled all the appliances away from the walls so heavy duty cleaning was called for. This worked really well at a fraction of the cost of commercial cleaners. Thankyou for posting. Mady for My 3 Chefs tag.
