THE BEST WOOD FLOOR CLEANER: Our wood floors have been looking pretty dirty for a while now, no matter how hard or often I mop. I usually see a residue on the floors after mopping, and I was looking for a better cleaning product to prevent that. Today, I discovered a secret gem, the best wood floor cleaner I’ve ever used!

We have three kids, a cat, and a dog. So, we easily have the need to vacuum and mop routinely and often. I use my robotic floor vacuum to keep the pet hair off the floors, but I still want my floors to shine and have that freshly mopped look. We have oak wood flooring throughout most of the home. I needed something that would not damage the wood.

I’m posting instructions and tips to show you how amazing your wood floors can look after using this product. I used Holloway House Quick Shine to mop and get great results on my ten year old wood floors.

Also, you can get the complete digital printable copy of the Year Long Thorough Declutter Series Calendar and Checklists here. The printable digital download is delivered to your email. It includes 25 pages of printable calendar pages and checklists to help you declutter every room in your home. You can sign up here.

THE BEST WOOD FLOOR CLEANER

THE BEST WOOD FLOOR CLEANER To clean your wood floors:

1. Sweep or vacuum the floors first.

2. Squirt the Holloway House Quick Shine onto the area you want to mop. (Afraid of build-up? See diluting tip at the end of this post)

3.Use a dry mop pad to mop the solution all over the surface of the floor. I used a Swiffer mop with a dry floor pad attached to it to apply and spread it across the floor surface.

4.Allow to dry. Repeat as needed.

Special tip: If you use a fresh mopping pad each time you mop a new room, you’ll getter better results. You may use more product, but a clean pad will prevent you tracking dirt from room to room.

I am really impressed with the shine! Our house is about ten years old, and my floors appear new again.

Side note: Since I first posted this tutorial, I have had a spill on the floor. Cleaning up the spill took quite a bit of time as each time I mopped the floor, it remained very sticky. I suspect this is due to the “wax” effect this product has on wood floors. To prevent that, you can try diluting the product in some water. Regular use of this product can create a wax build-up, so be aware of that. If you are fearful of that happening, try testing the product on a small area before using it on the entire floor. Overall, though, I’m still very happy with the way this product works.
