This won’t sparkle, and sometimes it leaves a few streaks, but it is great for all floors. The secret is to use a barely damp mop, not a soaking one and I like the old-fashioned rag mop which you can still buy at hardware stores. I also carry around a shaker full of baking soda to sprinkle on any hard-to-shift spots as I go.
- 4 litres hot water
- A squire of liquid soap
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- To 4 litres of hot water add a squirt of liquid soap (Sunlight or Dr Bronner’s Castile ) and half a cup of white vinegar.
- Add a good 10 drops of lavender essential oil, or any other kitchen oils which take your fancy, to give the room a nice smell and cut the slight vinegar odour you will get initially.
