Almost everyone admires the distinctive look of wooden flooring. However, you do need to take adequate care to keep them clean. Here are a few wooden floor cleaning tips that will surely help!
1) Use Vinegar
Prepare a solution comprising 1 cup of vinegar and 3 cups of water. Pour the solution into a spray bottle. Spray it over your wooden floor and clean it with a mop for a shiny, waxy look. When using water, it’s important to remember that too much water is bad for wood. So, let the process of cleaning with water be a weekly routine rather than a daily one.
2) Use Tea Bags
Take a container filled with warm water. Add a couple of tea bags to it and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Next, take a cloth and dip it in the water, wring out the excess liquid and gently wipe your wooden floors clean.
3) Use Olive Oil
If you have stains on your floor, olive oil is your best bet. Put a couple of drops of olive oil on the stained area and rub it in with a cloth. Allow this to sit for 10 minutes. Finally, wipe clean with a dry cloth.
4) Use Crayons
Crayons can work wonders when it comes to taking care of gaps in your wooden floors. Take a crayon that matches the shade of your wooden floor and rub it in the gap. Blow-dry the area. This will cause the crayon to melt into the gap. Once dry, take a cloth and wipe the area clean.
There you go! Follow these simple tips to keep your wooden floors clean.
