Tips for Cleaning Tile, Wood and Vinyl Floors

Clean Hardwood Floors: Use boiling water and two teabags to clean hardwood floors. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine for hardwood floors. Let two teabags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly. Wash the floor and be ready to be amazed by the sheen.

1 c water, 1 c vinegar, 1c alcohol, 2-3 drops dishwashing soap.....for shiny wood floors PLUS stainless steel appliances! I need to try this.

How to clean Stainless Steel...for real! Just spray Pledge on it, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then wiped it clean with a paper towel and wow is it clean!

Per another pinner--I just tried this - I will NEVER buy Comet, Soft Scrub, etc again. Used in the tub - sprayed on, left for about 1/2 hr - wiped down like nothing there. it is sparkling!

Laminate floor cleaner - Most popular one on Pinterest! This worked well. I did not use the lemon oil and you could smell vinegar but it cleaned the floor:).
