Do you want a quick and easy way to make your ceramic tile and hardwood sparkle?

I share with you on this post how this "secret" has worked for me! Want a quick way to give your ceramic tile and hardwood floors a sparkle? It's as easy as grabbing your bottle of Windex or a generic version. This was a trick I was taught years ago when I used to clean condos on the weekend in my "youth". I do it when I don't have time for a deep clean and even after deep cleaning. Gives everything an extra sparkle!

    When you use Windex, you ARE deep cleaning. It cleans and sanitizes well because it has ammonia in it. The shine is just the extra perk. I use glass cleaner with ammonia to clean many, many things around the house, especially in the kitchen and bath.

    I just looked up cleaning laminate floors on Google. We just had some installed and one of the cleaner they noted was a low vinegar glass cleaner.
