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!!!
Worked pretty good with HOT water. I normally use the Shaw brand laminate floor cleaner since I have Shaw laminate floors. The vinegar stuff picked up a lot more grime than my normal cleaner and did not leave a residue. It dried really fast and mostly streak-free. I even used it on my porcelain tile in my kitchen and now the tile feels clean. The only downside is the vinegary smell lingering in my house now, but I will use this again!
I really didn't think this would work but it does...perfectly! I do go behind and towel dry but it's worth it to have smudge free shiny floors. Thank you!!
Maybe we did something wrong...but it left our floor streaky. I will probably try again though because I like the idea of no harsh chemicals.
This worked great! I get so tired of having to get down on my hands and knees and try to scrub up grime that wont come up with the other cleaners. This seemed to clean better and left everything with a great shine! I guess I need to toss the cleaner out and go buy a big bottle of vinegar from now on!
I used this recipe in the kitchen, and DH's favorite brand of cleaner in the den. He had to admit - you could not tell the difference. No streaks or spots at all, and no vinegar odor. Needless to say, we won't buy cleaner again. Thanks for posting.
Worked nicely. I added a little grapefruit essential oil for extra anti-bacterial and anti-viral clean and to cover up the smell of the vinegar a little. Thanks.
This is what I use also. Try putting in spray bottle,I dry swifer my floor,have a mop with a terry cloth cover(got where I bought my flooring)spray and mop.No water to mop up! Also E-Z for spot cleaning.Had my son's groommen's supper at our house.People were in and out all night.My floor has never been that dirty.Before the wedding I dry mopped and then grabbed my vinegar/water bottle (15 min.I was done)Hope this is helpful.
