Keeping hardwood floors clean is one of the easiest household tasks there are for some, but to others it is a very frustrating challenge. Keeping the floors spot cleaned using Windex will help set you up and on your way to a shiny and clean floor.
Use a dust mop or a Swiffer to dust the hardwood flooring often. Some homemakers will do this daily, but in reality this can be done every couple of days.
Use only paper towels or a soft cloth to spot clean the floors.
Spray a small amount of Windex either on the cloth (or paper towel) or directly on the area being cleaned. Wipe it up immediately.
In between cleanings, use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment to keep the corners and crevices of the hardwood flooring clean.
In order to prevent rocks or pebbles (or other debris that can easily be tracked in) from damaging the hardwood flooring in between cleanings, ask everyone who enters your home to remove their shoes.
