Using Vinegar to Clean Hardwood Floors

Often, we are asked, "How do I clean hardwood floors"? Now I would like to tell you that hardwood floors can last a lifetime if properly taken care of. Using vinegar to clean hardwood floors is a good cheap solution to keep your wood surface looking good. Yes, preventative maintenance is the best solution. Be sure to dust mop and vacuum floors regularly to keep dirt from accumulating and scratching the floor.

This is an easy and cheap floor cleaning alternative. Try mixing 1/2 cup of white vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water. This method of using vinegar to clean hardwood floors is an easy and safe solution to keeping your floor looking its best. Be cautious what you put on your wood surface as oils or furniture polish can make a floor very slippery.

It’s the frugal homemaker’s best-kept secret to use this natural chemical for cleaning the home, and can be used in many ways, including cleaning hardwood floors.

Vinegar is an acidic liquid that is used in a variety of ways, from flavoring salad dressings to in our case cleaning hardwood floors. Normally, all that's needed is a damp mop cleanup to keep them looking great. However, if you want a deeper clean, that takes care of allergens, bacteria and more you may want to consider purchasing a portable steam cleaner that's made for hardwood floors.

The Bissell Steam Mop Bare Floor Steam Cleaner is a light weight steam mop that's easy to use. Its long power cord helps you reach the entire floor and the specially designed handle reduces "mopping stress". It comes equipped with two terry cloth cleaning pads, and features a clear plastic filter so you know when it's time for a change.

Hardwood floors require regular care to maintain their warm and beautiful appearance. Careful cleaning is an important consideration, as traditional mopping methods used on linoleum will ruin your hardwood flooring. White vinegar can become a homeowner's best friend for cleaning purposes. This natural disinfectant is safe on to use on nearly any surface is is especially well suited to hardwood floors. The distinct smell associated with vinegar evaporates after the liquid dries, leaving a clean and scent-free floor.

Sweep and dry mop the floors. It is important to remove as much loose dust and dirt from the floors as possible before you begin mopping.
