What's the best way to clean hardwood floors?
By Elsa from Cushing, ME
Thank the heavens! Windex worked to cure the Orange Glo debacle. I used Bona to remove the buildup and Windex to remove the film. Thank you to all my fellow posters. (03/27/2010)
I wish I would have read this sooner. I, too, used Orange Glo and have ruined my floors. I think there is hope. It might take me a few more Saturdays on my hands and knees. Does anyone use the Sharp Steam Mop? Please tell me there's no residual damage from using this type of mop over time. Thank you. (03/27/2010)
My hardwood floors were refinished 20 years ago. Never waxed. To maintain them, I use the steam shark, then orange glo hardwood cleaner with enclosed pads. I finish with orange glo refinisher. Nice clean and shiny! (04/13/2010)
How about pre-finished aluminum oxide floors? (04/19/2010)
All I know is I had beautiful Brazilian teak hardwood floors and we ruined them using any of the so-called wood floor cleaners and finishers. I started noticing my floor getting a cloudy film on them so I called the place where I purchased the floor and they said never put anything on the floor but their own cleaner! So I asked her what do I use to get all those 2 years of cleaners off. She said just dish soap and hot water. So I tried it and my lands I opened up a huge can! It worked but I had to soak the floors with water for 20 minutes before it penetrated through, and then the real work began. I started scraping the whole floor on my hands and knees with a pots and pans food scraper, it took forever like 12 hours, so I am scared to put anything on it again. (04/24/2010)
