Mopping Hardwood Floors

October 14, 2010

A mop and bucket on a hardwood floor.I clean my poly-coated wood floors with hot water and vinegar and it works very well. The only problem I am having is it does not remove footprints from the dog or people. I am sure this is from the natural oils on the foot. I can get them off if I clean them on my hands and knees, but due to health problems this becomes very painful. If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them.

Hot water is not always good, warm is. Get a car buffer. Many different kinds and extended handles. Like the old shoe polishers of yesteryear. Buff the floor. I take a couple of wash clothes, you can take old towels and make stitch them in a fold to fit your shoes, just skate the floor clean. Many other ways, like tell the kids to scoot on their butts works too.

Is that okay to use on polyurethaned floors?

My mom use to make us slide on her wood floors with old cotton socks and afterwards the floors looked great and we had fun.

I have a terrible white film on my hardwood floors and don't know how to get it off and restore the luster back to my floors. Can anyone help with suggestions?

What product do you use with water to mop hardwood floors, that doesn't leave a dull film?
