The Only Homemade Wood Floor Cleaner You’ll Ever Need

The Only Homemade Wood Floor Cleaner You’ll Ever Need

Seriously–Keep it simple.

Friday’s are my official cleaning day. I take pride in cleaning my home weekly, at the strange hour of 6:50 am. Let it go, It’s my thing. The proud moment always is at the end of my cleaning, where I can take a deep breath and take in the shining, sparkling effect of my home. It’s official the weekend when this happens.

What I have noticed throughtout the years, is that many of my old-school, cleaning cult favorites, are just not cutting it as much anymore. I spend more of my own time creating household cleaners, because I’m able to see better results. Most of my cleaning concoctions include essential oils, which makes not only your home smell lush, but also the natural properites are much safer than those harsh chemicals found in most cleaning products.

Today, it’s all about acheiving sparkly wooden floors. To achieve perfect, wooden floors; you really have to make sure you sweep or vacuum on a daily basis. Also, make sure you pay attention to small spills in your kitchen throughout the week. This keeps your home in shape. On your designated cleaning day, once all surfaces have been cleaned,(as well as all crumbs picked up from the floor), the final step is to mop your floors. Below, you will find my go-to floor cleaner. It’s very simple, yet extremely effective. Let me know how it works for you! Happy Cleaning!
