    I tried this today and my maple floor looks clean and shiny! It was a little greasy but I stuck with it and after it dried, the floor had no residue that I could feel. No streaks either.

    Are your floors unfinished or finished? My wood floors are finished real wood and they have a foggy residue from using Bona wood floor clesaner. I would like to try this too. I am worried about it being oily.

Did you know you can make household cleaners from ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen? Take a look at this simple recipe for Homemade Wood Floor Cleaner.

homemade floor cleaner: 1 c. water, 1 c. vinegar, 1 c. rubbing alcohol, 1 tbs. dish soap or castile soap(it will fizz*) and a few drops of pine essential oil. I put in empty Swiffer Wet Jet bottle( yes you can reuse!) & it works magic! Hardly any scrubbing! Make sure you add the alcohol to avoid streaks!
