Washing your floors with natural homemade floor cleaners is great way to go green at home.
No-Rinse Homemade Floor Cleaner RecipeThis is one of the easiest home cleaning recipes ever - just make it right in your kitchen sink! It really cuts into grease and grime, and it kills any germs or bacteria caught living on your floors. Plus, it smells awesome!
Fill a bucket (or your sink) with hot water. Pour in about 1/4 cup (a splash) of white vinegar. Add 15 drops essential oil.
That's it - just wash and let dry. No fuss, no muss, and it works on ceramic tile, vinyl, laminate and hardwood floors. I LOVE this recipe!
Heavy Duty Homemade Floor Cleaner RecipeThis is one of the best homemade kitchen floor cleaners - sticky juice spills, tracked-in mud, ground-in grease and grime... It also works on pretty much all floor types.
Fill a bucket with hot water. Pour in 1/2 cup each of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol or vodka. Add 2 tablespoons liquid dish soap and 15 drops of essential oil.
Optional: Stir in 1/4 cup baking soda to increase its deodorizing, disinfecting and scrubbing powers.
This recipe requires rinsing afterwards. Just go over the floor again with clean hot water to get rid of any soapy residue.
Handy Hint for Homemade Laminate Floor CleanerThe trick to using a homemade laminate floor cleaner is not to use too much. If you flood your laminate floor or leave water on it for too long, the edges of the boards will start to bubble and peel.
So use a damp mop or cloth (not sopping-wet) and apply pressure to scrub away grime rather than sitting water to loosen dirt.
Actually, this is good advice for using a homemade wood floor cleaner as well. You can really only soak ceramic tile or solid vinyl floors.
