Slippery Wood Floors

My wooden floors upstairs have suddenly gotten very slippery (even I've had a fall!) I've tried cleaning with soap liquid in warm water and just water on its own - but no luck! Any ideas?

Try using equal parts of good Ole' vinegar and water. Spray and mop.

Slippery Wood Floors

Be careful about using furniture polish on your furniture. If it sprays over onto the floor it makes the floor slippery. Also, spray starch or sizing used when ironing makes that happen. I only use a Swiffer with a dollar store wet wipe on the bottom to clean my wooden floors. Its the best! (03/30/2006)

Spray any window cleaner pump spray product, like Windolene, preferably with vinegar and simply wipe up with a damp mop your floor will be much less slippery (09/19/2007)

I've successfully used SKID SAFE WaterBased Sealer/Finish with ND AGGREGATE TM to end my hardwood floors and steps from being slippery when wet !
