DIY Green Cleaning Recipes for Wood Floor Cleaner

Vinegar and oil wood floor cleaner: To both clean and polish wood floors, combine equal parts white vinegar and vegetable or mineral oil. Rub into wood with a soft cloth.

Vinegar wood floor cleaner: Pour 1 cup of white vinegar into a bucket of hot water. Dip mop into cleaner and wring out so that it is damp, not dripping, and mop floors. Add 1/4 cup liquid castile soap for additional cleaning power, or substitute lemon juice for vinegar for a citrus scent.

Washing soda wood floor cleaner: Dissolve 1 tablespoon washing soda crystals into a bucket of hot water and damp mop your floors.

Borax wood floor cleaner: Pour 1/4 cup borax into a gallon of hot water. You can damp mop with this mixture without having to rinse.

Lemon and olive oil wood floor cleaner: Pour 1/2 cup lemon juice, 3/4 cup olive oil, and 1 gallon of hot water in a bucket. Apply to your floors with a damp mop.

Let’s start from the floor up. I’ll perhaps post if I search more.

The above (link in title) seems a good website, maybe it has everything one ever needs so all I need to do is report any bad results if I try anything. I was mourning the half a bottle of non-animal tested wooden floor cleaner, albeit the powers of which I never quite trusted because of the lovely almond smell, it cleaned my kitchen floors perfectly, instantly and effortlessly but then the smell stayed and I think it attracted insects (almond smell = food!) who became confused… and probably hangry.

What kind of a country does not sell Borax!!!? Mine.
