WithÂ the floor cleaning solution tackled, the next step is finding the right kind of mop. I’ve used (and tossed) many mops over the years. I grew up with a mom who regularly scrubbed the kitchen floor on her hands and knees at night when everyone was asleep. You’d be correct to assume that we could practically eat off of those floors. I don’t know how she had the time or energy to do that. I need an easier solution and a greatÂ mop to get the job done.
Back to the DIY floor cleaner: I’ve included instructions for making a single batch of it, as well as directions for making one big batch that will last you 6-12 months.
I’ve replaced many bottles of various cleaners in favor of naturalÂ ones. Since ditching my old floor cleaner in the kitchen, I’ve often used vinegar and warm water when mopping up messes, but let’s be real: it kind of stinks. It was time to break out the essential oils and Sal Suds to come up with something that would work well and smell fantastic.
Are dirty floors your nemesis? A lot of cooking goes on in my kitchen every day. Add muddy paw and foot prints to the splashes, splatters, spills, and crumbs, and my floor definitely requires regular maintenance. That’s why it’s important to me to use cleaners that work well, are budget-friendly, and not full of chemicals. Enter this DIY Pine-Scented Floor Cleaner.
