Supper sticky and dirty?
A bucket, micro fiber mop, PH Balanced dish soap a drop or two. A gallon of water. I soak the micro fiber mops. And then I squeeze out all the water. And let them set. I squeeze them out again I don't want to soak the floor with water. I mop and then dry with a dry micro fiber mop. I work in small sections.
No exotic recipes. Keep it simple. No measuring and making something I know it will damage something so beautiful.

Wax was used at the beginning. They would strip and reWax every so often. I still know people who wax. Polycrylic or polyethylene is easy and fast to use. A lot of it is water soluble and makes clean up easier. Lacquer can be used and is a good sealer. It is different for everyone. I re did my floors recently and used polycrylic to seal.
