Tips for Naturally Cleaning Hardwood Floors

28 Mar. 2016

Your hardwood floors cost a lot of money to put in, but they can last a lifetime if you give them the love and care they deserve. One of the best ways that you can regularly give your floors a good dose of TLC is to give them a good clean. Many people love the idea of having wood in their home. It gives them a sense of having natural products, a bit of nature on the inside of their home, it also provides a much warmer surface for the family to walk on and wood can be quite forgiving.

Many people don't want to use one of the many cleaning products that are commercially available for fear that they are polluting the timber and the insides of their homes. Having said that, there is a rise in natural cleaning products to take into account this growing market. But there are also natural products that act as cleaning products. In this article, I'm going to look at three: lemons, vinegar and olive oil.

Lemons not only have a great smell about the house, and are the basis of many commercial products (in aroma at least), but they also have anti-bacteriological and antiseptic qualities. To use lemons in your cleaning, thereby making sure you are getting rid of some of the nasty germs that might be lurking on your timber flooring, simply add half to one full cup of lemon juice to your mopping water. Job done.

Another natural cleaner is vinegar, but make sure it's the white variety. As with the lemon juice, add half a cup to your mopping water. Vinegar cuts grease, removes bad odours and can help to remove the build-up of wax. The vinegary smell won't last long. Once the timber has dried, the smell should be gone.

While olive oil doesn't do much to clean your floors, by adding a few tablespoons to your water, the olive oil will help to condition the timber. It doesn't take much oil to put a sheen back into your floors.

As you can see, it's often the simplest of ingredients that do the best job. For the most part, you don't need to use harsh or abrasive cleaners. A lemon or some vinegar will do the same job, cutting down on bacteria and reducing the cost of expensive cleaners, as well as being kind to your home environment into the bargain. Add a touch of olive oil for that finishing touch.
