    What's the best cleaner for Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring. It never really had a shine to it, but it's really dull looking after 12 years. I'd like to give it some brightness again !

    I have used vinegar and water many times not realizing it was what was removing the shine from my floors. I have used many wood floor cleaners trying to bring that it back but of course nothing helps. Lid there something simple I can use to bring back

      As long as the floor itself isn't damaged you can use a sander with a screen and polyuthene it again. It is a pain! But less work and your finish back! I have preached this so much but everyone thinks because their ancesters used it and it's natural

    Thanks, Nature's Nurture . I have a question, though. You mentioned on your blog not to use essential oils around pets, emphatically. Why is that?

    I bought Zep Laminate and Hardwood floor cleaner and was excited when I first applied it to an area. I shortly learned that it never completely dries, so that one step on it leaves a footprint. I was so discouraged. I went back to vinegar and water, but

    Because pets walk on the floor that's being cleaned, and then lick their paws, fur, etc. we have to be very careful when using essential oils on floor surfaces. Essential oils can be harmful to cats, especially. Some oils seem to be ok to be used on

    For the time being, I have discovered what works for me. Simple alcohol sprayed on a microfiber cloth on my swiffer duster. I was worried about straight alcohol, but I know the instructions for laminate flooring it says you can use fingernail polish

    @hometalk So what's the best cleaner AND shiner for regular hard wood floors? I have been using a shark to clean it and then reapplying shine separately but have been sick for 2 months and they look horrible...

      If your buying it Bona. And a micro fiber mop. If your cleaning it natural a drop or two of dish soap in a bucket of water wring as much water out as possible. Then mop, rinse remember wringing as much water out as possible. Then dry. Don't leave

      Amy W. I totally agree with Amy W. I find it irritating to read a post that directs me to a blog when the information could be conveyed in the post.
