How to Make Your Own Hardwood Floor Cleaner

With Ingredients You Have at Home


Protect Your Hardwood Flooring

Your hardwood floor is beautiful, charming, and sometimes hard to care for. Learn how to make your own hardwood floor cleaner.

How to Make Your Own Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Like many DIY cleaning solutions, vinegar is the base of your hardwood floor cleaner. Your most basic option is a 1:1 vinegar and water mixture. Try these variations:

  • Essential oils: Vinegar does have a distinct smell when wet, but it does dry scentless. If you’d like your floor to smell like it was just cleaned, add a couple of drops of essential oil to your cleaning solution.
  • Vegetable oil: If your hardwood manufacturer recommends against using water in any amount to clean your floor, you can make your solution with vegetable oil instead.
  • Plant-based liquid soap: For an extra sticky mess, add liquid soap to your vinegar and mixture. This will help clean the especially grimy areas.

Put your cleaning solution in a spray bottle and spray a minimal amount on your floor. Mop as usual or use a white cleaning rag for extra tough spots.
