Using vinegar for household chores is one of the best-kept secrets in housekeeping. In my house, we have a long hardwood floor when you come in the front door. With two kids, two dogs and a cat, this hardwood floor can get pretty messed up.
I have used overpriced products to clean it before. They stink, one of the dogs tried to lick the floors once I used it (no joke by the way) and as I said just before, they are overpriced. However, vinegar came to my rescue and allowed me to keep my hardwood floors clean at a fraction of the price.
This is the first question many people have and I can tell you the answer is no. All you need is the most basic white vinegar, always make sure it is white. It does not need to be a fancy brand, the cheapest you can find is going to get the job done.
You want to use white vinegar as it is not going to stain your hardwood floors. Also, you will notice that white vinegar tends to be the cheapest vinegar around.
Some people have a hard time getting their head around the fact that white vinegar is such a good cleaning product….. and I was one of these people. However, over the years I have learned that there are many reasons that vinegar is good for cleaning hardwood floors.
So if you have a prized hardwood floor that the kids and pets keep messing up, here are the reasons as to why white vinegar can be your knight in shining white armor!
So you have your bottle of white vinegar and you have your mop, but what now? Well, do not just pour the bottle of white vinegar onto your hardwood floors! Instead, you need to follow these very simple instructions.
That is all there is when it comes to how to clean hardwood floors with vinegar. Some people will make it far more complex than it needs to be, but if you follow those first three steps, you will have sparkling clean and pretty nice smelling hardwood floors in no time at all.
So before you pick up that hardwood floor cleaning product, give white vinegar a shot and I promise you will not be disappointed.
