An economical laminate floor cleaner spray that you can make for pennies... and it gets your floors just as clean as that expensive cleaner they sell in stores... if not cleaner! This formula has been keeping my floors so clean and does not give me a headache like so many other commercial cleaners, so I have decided to share this gem that was shared with me from a Pergo expert. This is the first "recipe" I've posted with the hope that many of you will be able to put it to good use!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup water
  • 13 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 13 cup white vinegar
  • 3 drops liquid dishwashing soap
  • 5 -10 drops lemon essential oils (optional)


  1. Comibine all ingredients in a clean spray bottle.
  2. Spray sparingly on laminate floors and mop up.
  3. The rubbing alcohol helps speed up the drying process.

This stuff works wonders! You can spray it on a sticky spot on the floor and after it sits a minute, the spot will wipe right off. I put my mixture in an old Swiffer Wet-Jet bottle and used it with the Swiffer mop. It works great, and is a lot more economical than buying a new bottle of the Swiffer Wet-Jet cleaner. I used double the amount of water called for, so my solution was diluted, but it still worked great!

This is great on the floors, but also OUTRAGEOUS on WINDOWS!!!!! I accidently picked up the wrong spray bottle and went to work--I noticed how it was going much more quickly than usual--that's when I noticed my mistake! Now I have 2 great cleaners in one for just pennies! Thanks!

Just bought an O'Cedar Pro Mist-- it has a refillable tank so you can use your own cleaner! (love that) I used this floor cleaner and WOW, I am impressed. We have a 14 year old lab, who slobbers a lot these days--hard to clean off the laminate floor. The alcohol and vinegar cleaned it easily. I used lemon eucalyptus essential oil and the house smells amazing! One recipe cleaned my dining room, hallway, 8 steps, tile entryway and daughters 10x12 room. I think I will make a gallon of it ! It would be great in a spray bottle too--for little spills!
