Frugal Floor Cleaner


You don't need fancy cleaners to keep your floor sparkling clean.  Try a few of the ideas below and see how proud you can be of your floors.

Vinegar. A few drops in the cleaning water will help
remove grease. Dull, greasy film on no-wax
linoleum can be washed away with 1/2 cup white vinegar
mixed into 1/2 gallon water.

For Wood Floors: Vegetable Oil and Vinegar. Mix a 1
to 1 ratio of oil and vinegar into a solution and apply a
thin coat. Rub in well.

For Painted Wooden Floors: Washing Soda*. Mix 1
teaspoon washing soda into 1 gallon hot water and wash
the floor with a mop, sponge, or soft bristled brush.
This solution can also be used to remove mildew. 

For Brick and Stone Floors: Vinegar. Mix 1 cup white
vinegar into 1 gallon water. Scrub the floor with a brush
and the vinegar solution. Rinse with clean water.

For Ceramic Tile: Vinegar. Mix 1/4 cup white vinegar
(more if very dirty) into 1 gallon water. This solution
removes most dirt without scrubbing and doesn't leave a
film. Washing ceramic tiles with soap does not work very
well in hard water areas as it leaves an insoluble film.

Club Soda. Polishing your floor with Club Soda will
make it sparkle. 

For Vinyl and Asbestos Tiles: Club Soda. Remove wax
buildup by pouring a small amount of club soda on a
section. Scrub this in well. Let it soak in a few minutes
and wipe clean.

For Linoleum Flooring: Isopropyl Alcohol*. To remove
old wax by mopping, mix a solution of 3 pans water to 1
pan rubbing alcohol. Scrub this in well and rinse

To remove black heel marks: Baking Soda. Rub the heel
mark with a paste of baking soda and water. Don't use too
much water or the baking soda will lose its abrasive
