Frugal Tip: Grease-Cutting Floor Cleaner

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, September 01, 2012 | 0 comments

Before my husband moved in, we only used Nature Clean Organic Cleaner to wash the floor.

He has become the official floor cleaner and was not convinced that Nature Clean did a good enough job.

I wonder if I could convince him to use this, instead of the commercial cleaners that tend to give me an asthma attack!

Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe:
• ¼ cup white vinegar
• 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap
• ¼ cup washing soda
• 2 gallons tap water, very warm.

1. Place all the ingredients into a bucket and mix well until sudsy.
2. Mop the area with the solution.
3. Not recommended for waxed floors -- it may make the wax gunky.

Sara Myers Wilson posted: It actually works well, I had used some from making my homemade laundry soap. The only thing is, if you put it directly on the floor and use as a scrubber - it will remove the shiny coating from linoleum. Otherwise it is an awesome grease/dirt cutter and no strong odor, yet still smells clean

Donna C Phillips posted: Yikes! Thanks for the info, Sara. When I was very young my mother-in-law told me to use ammonia on my linoleum floor. I poured it straight on. It became spongy.

Anne Girucky posted: I make my own laundry soap with that,works great saves me big $$ and I don't have to buy laundry soap for 6 months!!

Wanda Hurley posted: Instead of using any cleaners, I use a steamer. It works wonders.
