Homemade Floor Cleaner To Clean Laminate Floors And More!

From: Tawna
I read your tip about refilling a swiffer mop. I use your all purpose cleaner recipe and spray it on the floor. Then I wipe it up with my reusable mop or tie a rag to the mop head and later throw it in the washer. Works great to clean laminate floors and is very cheap.
Also your laundry stain prespotter is the best I every used. I always spray my husband’s shirt collars and no more collar rings. Unfortunately he must wear dress clothes to work and keeping them clean and new looking can be hard but they are also expensive to replace.

First, other than Tara, I never knew anyone could have a name so close to mine! LOL

I’m so glad that our recipe for homemade floor cleaner works for you. If you want to know how to clean laminate floors this is pretty much what I do, when I do clean the floors. To be honest I only clean my laminate floors about twice a year. Now, before you pass out from your vision of my house being on an episode of Hoarders, I also clean my floors every day. I have 4 kids and we for the most part only drink water which gets spilled at least 3 or 4 times a day.  So I just mop my floors as the messes occur.  When I mop up the water then I do a 3-4 foot area around it and that’s how I mop my floors. I usually just grab a dishrag from the sink that’s from the day before, wipe it up and  then throw it in the laundry. I bleach my dishrags and towels so there’s not a problem with contamination. Then every few months I get out the mop and do a once over of everything. That is how I clean my laminate floors.

Here is the recipe again if you’re interested in trying it.


All Purpose Cleaner Recipe

1 gallon water
1 cup ammonia
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup baking soda

Combine all ingredients. Put in a spray bottle to clean showers, toilets, sinks and counters. Great for most cleaning needs. Use all-purpose cleaner to clean your floors. Just spray on and wipe off as you would counter-tops.

This is not a disinfectant. To make it a disinfectant too I add about 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol  to the bottle
