If you have vinegar, water, alcohol, liquid dish soap, and some essential oils laying around your home then you are just about ready to make your own homemade liquid floor cleaner. If you are one who does not enjoy too many chemicals in your cleaning products, the only option is to go all natural. Here’s how you can make your own liquid floor cleaner.
First, go get the things you need:
- 2 cups warm water
- ½ cup white vinegar
- ¼ cup rubbing alcohol
- 3 drops of liquid soap (without moisturizers or antibacterial ingredients)
- 10 drops of essential oils
All you have to do is put 2 cups of warm water in a bowl. Pour in the vinegar, rubbing alcohol and drops of liquid soap and essential oils. Basically, just combine them all in a large bowl. Mix them together and put this concoction in a spray bottle. Shake well and you are good to go!
This works for all types of floors like hardwood floor, laminate, vinyl flooring, linoleum, and tiled floor.
So what makes this mixture a reliable floor cleaner?
The white vinegar serves as a mild disinfectant. The amount specified is safe since it is not acidic enough to cause unwanted etching. The rubbing alcohol, on the other hand, is also a disinfectant and makes the evaporation process faster. The liquid dish soap breaks down the bonds between dirt and floor, cleans and removes grease. The essential oils tame the odor coming from vinegar and alcohol and makes everything smell better.
So, there you have it. Your own recipe in making your homemade liquid floor cleaner. Consider yourself a DIY expert!
