How do I get rid of smudges on my hardwood floors?

I used Bona floor refinisher my hardwood floors, following directions and giving plenty of time for it to dry. Looked great until.... my dog walked on it, pad prints were all over it. Can’t get rid of them now.

    I used Bona also and had the same problem. Went to cleaning my hard floors with vinegar and water. Looks amazing and no smudges. To give them a quick pick up with no smudge effect swifter cleaner for hardwoods.

    1 cup apple cider vinegar

    2 Tbsp blue Dawn

    2 gallons warm water


    1 cup hydrogen peroxide

    Try one of these solutions to remove residue.
