Today I’m going to share with you a wood floor cleaner that I’ve been making since I was pregnant with my first kiddo (who is now 4.5 years old…wahhh!!) Lover Boy and I had installed light colored laminate wood flooring in our first home and with three dogs it was easy to see their drool marks from their water bowl. We had been using Melaleuca’s cleaners for a couple of years before this but they did/do not sell a wood floor cleaner. So, I got busy on Google (this was before the big wave of blogs and Pinterest) and started searching for a safe homemade cleaner. I remember looking at several recipes and decided to make the one with the least amount of ingredients…and ones that I had on hand. I have been using this for almost 5 years now and have been pleased ever since!

What You Need:

-empty spray bottle

-rubbing alcohol


-water (it doesn’t not have to be bottled water…I only used this jug for picture purposes)

How You Make It:

-in spray bottle fill 1/3rd rubbing alcohol, 1/3rd vinegar and 1/3rd water (in other words – equal parts of each ingredient)

How To Use It:

-spray in medium sized sections on the floor and use a soft cloth mop to wipe it up! No extra water needed!

*It’s super easy, cheap, safe and leaves your house smelling really fresh!

**I have now used this homemade wood floor cleaner in all three of our houses on laminate, engineered hardwood and solid hardwood flooring and it’s worked great on all of them!

I hope you guys will enjoy this homemade wood floor cleaner and enjoy the benefits of non-toxic cleaning!
