I’ve been doing a lot of research on Living Green. The only problem with that when it comes to cleaners is many I have tried did not work nearly as well as the commercial cleaners. Not one to give up I’m still on a quest to find natural replacements. So, why not start with floor cleaner since the house needs mopped anyway! : )
One night while spending hours looking at “just one more pin” I happened across a pin with this description “ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: ¼ cup white vinegar, 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, ¼ cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water , very warm.)”
Heavy duty caught my attention right away! With living on a farm and dogs in the house. So you can imagine how quickly the dirt piles up!
I have to say I was doubtful. As I said I’ve tried natural cleaners in the past and they just weren’t all they were cracked up to be! I assembled my ingredients – only three simple basic ingredients in this cleaner by the way (okay four if you count the water), mixed it all up and began mopping the house.

I’m happy to report that I finally have found a natural floor cleaner that is as good as if not better than the commercial floor cleaners I’ve used in the past. It took very little effort on my part to clean the floor which is a huge plus and you can tell the floor has been mopped which is another bonus! Did I mention that our floors are white? Who does that? It was like that when we moved into the house!
Here’s the before and after pictures of the floor. My pictures leave a lot to be desired but I think you’ll get the idea.
