What is the best way to clean your floors? I’m keen to hear from other mums about how they clean their floors. I mop mine with hot water and bleach but they still don’t look clean.

  • I mop using really hot water with a splash of eucalyptus oil and few drops of lemongrass oil. Cleans well, smells beautiful and leaves no toxic residue or nasties

  • I have converted to KOH it’s amazing an all in one product that does what it says eco friendly non toxic and for top to toe cleaning.

  • I just mop with warm water.

  • Vacuum and steam mopping after!

  • For tiles floors I use hot water and vinegar. For floorboards water with Earth Choice Wooden Floor and Surface.

  • Great! Really interesting comments read on this!

  • mine always look better when someone else does them!! Even my husband does a great job

  • vacuum and then mop works for me

  • Vacuum first, then when mopping I use boiling water so it evaporates pretty much straight away and it’s all dry.

  • i use earth floor detergent

  • there are some good comments here

  • Vacuuming & wiping with disinfectant – water mixture.

  • Vacuum then steam mop.

  • I vaccum then steam mop. It works so much better than my old mop and bucket that left the floors grubby. Plus I don’t have to use and chemicals. Safer for the kids!

  • Some good advice there below.
