Hmm........ well, then how do you get up any spills or stains? Most of the hardwood floors I have cleaned so far have not been waxed. I have only run into this once, and the owner okay'd my using a damp mop with wood floor cleaner. It looked quite good when I was done.

White tiles are not hardest to clean, we can easily clean white tile. But Wooden floors are hardest to clean.

On most tile floors, I use a "non bleach" bleach, containing hydrogen peroxide. It cleans great and the Lysol brand smells nice, too.

Hardwood floors frustrate me a lot. To get up stains, spills, etc., you do have to use something OTHER than "hardwood floor" cleaners. I use Watkins All Purpose Cleaner for this. Once spills, etc., are gone, I use various hardwood floor cleaners. They are a PAIN because you have to mop WITH the grain of the wood, not against it. In some homes, the planks are laid down in intricate patterns, making it even MORE difficult. And homeowners dont quite understand that these floors take more time! I find that very frustrating. If anyone has any shortcut answers to this, please tell me!

Thanks for posting details - regular cleaning is best, but it's good to match our cleaning to the surfaces. Instead of using detergent or any harmful chemicals, you can use eco-friendly products. You can keep your house and floor clean or shiny by using energy efficient polishing equipment. Although, steam cleaner is best for carpet and hardwood floors. As we all know that the floor cleaning lubricants are made by some chemicals which will be harmful for children and for us also. So I always appreciate natural floor cleaning techniques. Hiring a professional service can save you money in the long run.

Terrcotta tiles are by far the hardest to clean. It takes ages to clean, hours to dry and a lot of time to glaze.

I do not argue, yes, the scenario described in the topic is quite working and has the right to exist, only a large percentage of students will write according to the scheme I would like to write about and will receive a + paper. And the teacher will again have to rely on his memory. Thus (of course) - the game is not worth the candle. Or does someone disagree with me? Then write what you think about it.
