I had that same problem, and someone told me to clean it with soap and water, which worked great, but I was on my hands and knees and that was just too much work! So then I bought a Shark, the cleaner that cleans with steam, and then mop it all with mop & glow. The floors looked like new again!

I find that mopping with vinegar and water or steam cleaning works very well, but the floor must be thoroughly dried or it will be streaky. I tie a towel to my dust mop and dry each section as I clean it.


Seems like a lot of work, but it's worth it and I only have to do it about three or four times a year.

Have you tried mopping with vinegar? 1 cup per gallon of water

The best and safest place to find this answer is to call two or three laminate flooring companies. Using anything other than what they recommend can harm the floors over time and will void the flooring warranty. One of the products not recommended for some laminates is mop and glow.


I've had laminate flooring in the past and one of the recommended safe solutions is the vinegar and water suggested by another poster here.
