I used a vinegar solution on a laminate floor and was very happy with the results. But the directions said to use a spray bottle and only wet a 3'x3' area, mop and then use a dry towel to dry the area. It isn't the liquid, vinegar or water, that hurts the floor. It is leaving it wet for any amount of time that causes damage. This is true of any wood surface.

FYI Bronner castile soap company says to never mix vinegar with soap: “vinegar is an acid and the Castile soap is a base. They will directly react with each other and cancel each other out. So, instead of getting the best of both (the scum cutting ability of the vinegar and the dirt transporting ability of the soap), you’ll be getting the worst of something entirely new. The vinegar “unsaponifies” the soap, by which I mean that the vinegar takes the soap and reduces it back out to its original oils. So you end up with an oily, curdled, whitish mess”
Can you make this and store it to use as needed?
How much Castile soap and vinegar do you use? How many drops of essential oil do you use?
I thought adding castle soap with vinegar makes it slimier is that true
