Can the Swiffer Wet Jet be used on laminate floors?
By Jobetdav from Pensacola, FL
I use the Swifter on my laminate floors. Haven't noticed any damage.
I was told by the salesman that sold me my floor never to use a swiffer type product on my laminate floor as it would leave a reside after time that would be impossible to remove. I either use vinegar and water for everyday and BONA once a week. Also make sure that you never leave standing water in the floor only damp mop or it will cause it to peel up.

I have a question about the swiffer wet towels. We have the pergo laminate floors (that look like hardwood floors). We can only use vinegar to clean them. I buy the swiffer with vinegar for laminate floors. Can someone give me a recipe that I can used instead of buying that cleaner? How much water to how much vinegar? I have the swiffer mop that you attach the sheets by poking them in the little holes. Not the wet jet.

Can't get any cheaper or safer. It costs only pennies a gallon, it is a natural and highly effective disinfectant and degreaser, is totally harmless to humans and animals and the odor dissipates in a few minutes. I have saved a ton of money using this on my wood and linoleum floors. Great for dusting or quick clean up. Incidentally, vinegar and/or ammonia is the active ingredient in Windex. (08/10/2005)
