Default Best hardwood floor cleaner?

What does everyone consider to be the best cleaner to mop onto hardwood floors?

Hey MarshaMarshaMarsha,

Redbirdseven beat me to recommending the Bruce one It's a really stellar cleaner, and I get nothing but good reviews about it. You can get the traditional 32-oz spray bottle, or they do make a combo pack with a swiffer mop included.

Aside from that, I've also used the Tarkett brand cleaner as well as a product called "Rejuvenate," which also works really well to bring back the luster of the floor.

Let me know which one you try out, or if you have good luck with a different cleaner--always looking for good suggestions too~ ^^

- Mr. Jay

Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner & Polish System works great for me!

I am a big fan of Murphy Oil Soap. Very effective for all the different hardwood floors that I've ever used it on. Not the best if the floor is heavily scratched or ruined, but for your everyday floors it works great!

Thanks everyone! I also just came across a suggested a brand called Bona. Has anyone had any experience (good/bad) with this one?

I use the Bona system on my hardwood floor in the kitchen...and absolutely love it. The only thing is that you have to have all the components...using just one product from the line will "work", but the entire system yields amazing results.

I came across a Bona system at Target for $50. Is it really worth that much of an investment?

Default Don't put junk on those beautiful floors!

Almost any commercial product will leave a residue which will dull your finish over time. After vacuuming the debris off of your floor, use a well-wrung mop or barely damp rag to get the floors clean. If you're getting spots, just a little white vinegar will take care of that.
