Homemade, All-Natural Cleaners for Sparkling Floors
|Written by Colleen Vanderlinden|
Who doesn't love clean, sparkling tile floors, or wood floors that gleam after a good mopping? But if you have small children or pets, you may not want them crawling around on a floor that's just been wiped down with chemical cleaners, right? Happily, this doesn't mean you have to resign yourself to less-than-immaculate floors, nor does it complicate matters much. Here are recipes for homemade, natural floor cleaners that you can make yourself - most likely from ingredients right from your very own pantry.
Basic Floor CleanerThis floor cleaner works well on all floor types - sealed wood, tile, laminate and linoleum - for regular cleaning. And it really couldn't be simpler. Simply mix equal parts of white vinegar and hot water, and mop. There's no need to rinse, and the vinegar smell dissipates once the floors have dried (promise!). The vinegar acts as a mild disinfectant and leaves a nice shine.
Disinfecting Floor CleanerThis recipe is great for the bathroom and any other areas of your home that need good, regular, disinfecting.
There you have it: Three incredibly easy, natural floor cleaners to use all around your home. For pennies, you can have both a clean home and peace of mind.
