How to Clean Wood Floors

Posted on

My clean and waxed kitchen floor.

My recently new wood kitchen floor was beginning to look flat and dull.  I had been cleaning it with Murphy’s Oil soap, but it seemed to leave a residue.  This morning, I searched the Internet for “Homemade Wood Floor Cleaners” and I found a cool website I would like to share called Tipnut

The site has recipes for homemade products used to clean wood floors.  I used the recipe that called for ½ cup of white vinegar and 1 gallon of water to clean the floor.  When it was dry, I tried the homemade wax that consisted of 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar.  I stirred the mixture together and dipped an old T-shirt rag into the wax.  I rubbed the wax into the floor in a circular motion.  Wah-La! My floor was shining once more.  I only used ½ of the wax mixture for my 10×10 floor.

What is more amazing is that all of these products came from items I always have in the house, and it cost me nothing to make my floor look new again.  I highly recommend the website Tipnut. It has other cleaning tips as well as gardening, health & beauty, and DIY tips. Visit the website at
