Tile Floor with Shadows

Last week we shared a recipe for cleaning you wood floors naturally, and this week we’ve got two recipes (from Make Your Place) for mopping up those vinyl and tile floors!

Both of these cleaners can be used on vinyl and tile flooring, which one you choose really just depends on which scent you prefer.

Lemon Floor Cleaner

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup liquid castile soap
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 10 drops tea tree oil
  • 6 cups warm water

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients and store in a plastic jug.
  2. When ready to clean floors, apply cleaner to wet reusable Swiffer mop head and clean away! The solution is more concentrated, so you can also pour some of the cleaner into a bucket of warm water and use a traditional mop!

Pine Floor Cleaner

Choose this recipe if you love the smell of Christmas trees :). Pine oil is great for cleaning because of it’s natural deodorizing and antibacterial properties!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup liquid castile soap
  • 1/2 cup pine oil (you would need 4 of these one ounce sized bottles)
  • 6 cups warm water

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and store in a plastic jug.
  2. When ready to clean your floors, apply cleaner to wet reusable Swiffer mop head and clean away. The solution is more concentrated, so you can also pour some cleaner into a bucket of warm water and use a traditional mop!

Which vinyl/tile floor cleaning recipe do you prefer, lemon or pine?

    When it comes to cleaning services, you have to choose really careful. Not all of the companies out there a good dependable. However, if you live in London, you can choose the cleaners in Ladywell, who are proven experts in their field.
