Environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals! We tried the expensive cleaners and found our floors still looked streaky and dull. This homemade cleaner makes them look bright, streak free and beautiful!


  1. Mix vinegar and water and mop floors as usual.

Worked on my new floor except for the sticky stuff from the underlayment. My kids stuck the underlayment to my new floor and I could not get the sticky stuff off the floor. I tried vinegar and water and a plastic scraper, orange cleaner and hand soap and plastic scraper. Still sticky stuff. Then I remembered peanut butter will remove gum from hair so I figured it was worth a shot. Yes, PEANUT BUTTER removes sticky stuff from the floor. So if you end up with tape or other sticky stuff on the floor try peanut butter and a plastic scraper. Hope this helps someone!!

Squeaky clean floors (Caution, this cleaner makes your floors so clean they are slippery!)! I used on real hardwoods, linoleum as well. Worked great. I mopped and then went over it with a rag to get up more of the water. Super! Bye bye Lysol and Swifter! Update: I added 10 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract for disinfecting as well.

So simple and so cheap! Have used vinegar and water for my windows, would never have thought about using on laminate floors. Worked wonders and house smelled so good after. Thanks!!!
