    One part vinegar to three parts water and just a smal squirt of dish soap leaves mine super clean and shiny!

      I used to use Bona but when I found this recipe my floors looked just like new and with dogs and cats it’s a miracle worker I keep a big jug of it always ready to fill my mop dispenser, good luck! Ps mine are that dark wood too, next time I’m going lighter!

    Bona for laminate floors.

    When you wash it use a damp mop with a bit of baking soda in warm water, no vinegar. In between use a dry mop which has static cling to help keep the dust particles at bay. If you have a blower heating system be sure that your filter is cleaned regularly or it will blow up through the vents and cover everything if the filter is clogged.

      Does the baking soda not cause it to dry with a residue on it?

    Yes vinegar works but I personally don't care for the smell on my laminate I use this stuff:

    Yes, although it is trendy to have dark flooring, many more bits of dust, floor, thread, etc. will show up on it. No cleaner will prevent this from happening. If you do not want to be constantly cleaning the floor, I would say do away with permanent frustration, and replace it with a light color.
