3 DIY Cleaners for Hardwood Floors

Check out these DIY cleaners for hardwoods:

  • Castile soap
  • Vinegar
  • Black tea

Here’s a closer look at each.

DIY Hardwood Cleaner #1: Castile Soap

Mix a teaspoon of Castile soap, four cups of warm water, and ten drops of your favorite essential oil and pour into a spray bottle. Work the cleaner into sections of the floor using a microfiber mop.

DIY Hardwood Cleaner #2: Vinegar

Mix white vinegar with warm water to remove built-up dirt from your hardwoods. (You can use this on countertops, too.) If you’re not a big fan of vinegar’s scent, add a few drops of essential oils.

DIY Hardwood Cleaner #3: Black Tea

Boil four cups of water and let a few black tea bags steep for 10 minutes. Pour the tea in a bucket, dip a soft cloth in it (and wring out the excess liquid), and wipe down your hardwood to get it shining like new again.
