Laminate Floor Cleaner

I have found so many times that having a laminate floor in our kitchen is slightly a pain merely for the fact that it’s almost impossible to get the floor streak-free when you mop it. My go-to cleaner is typically a swiffer that I use for a quick clean but it leaves streaks all across the flooring. When I really want my floor to look in tip-top shape I use this “concoction” I am about to share with you. It’s a pretty basic one that includes ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. {Even better right?} Check it out…

INGREDIENTS:

  • Dish Soap {I like to use Dawn soap}
  • White Vinegar
  • Water

HOW TO:

Revised version: Simply mix together in a spray bottle the vinegar and water keeping the amount the same for each. {Example: 1 cup of white vinegar, 1 cup of water} Then squirt enough dish soap in the squirt bottle to tint the color but be sure not to add too much as it will make your floors slick.

Spray your laminate floor and dry mop over it going the direction of your flooring. {I like to use my swiffer to go over the sprayed floor but I put a dry cloth in place of where the swiffer pad should be and it works great AAAND saves $$.}

Once your floor is completely dry you can sit back, relax and enjoy your streak-free floor! :-D

  1. We just put in laminate flooring a few months ago and I’m still trying to figure out the best way to clean them. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I did this and it turned my floors into a skating rink. I tried to mop after and that was no help. I finally tried my carpet cleaner with only water in it to get the soap off of the floor and make it safe again. Way too much soap!

  3. I tried this, and my floors were extremely slippery, and anything but streak free. I tried the next time by using a wet mop (considering I made enough to last me a while), and I had to go over it again with a dry towel. My floor was really clean though! Probably the cleanest it has gotten since I was on my hands and knees actually scrubbing with a scrub brush. Yes, it may be a cheaper way to clean the floors, but it is a whole lot of work and time! Thankfully, my kitchen is the only floor done in laminate! Next time I will try using a little less than half of the dish soap. and keep the other proportions the same.

  4. Does this also leave it film-free? We have used some floor cleaners that don’t leave streaks, but the entire floor looks almost cloudy from the film left behind. It drives me nuts and makes me second-guess our decision to do laminate.

  5. we made this, and paid attention to what you said about using ONLY enought saop to change the color. ( it’s not rocket science). The instructions were very clear, and made a fantastic cleaner, couldn’t be happier. No after “mess”. No extra cleaning. No re-cleaning, no mopping up excessive soap, because we followed your instructions. Floors look great, easy and cheap product. Thank you for sharing.
