How to Make Laminate Wood Floors Shine

Laminate floors are a beautiful addition to any home at a fraction of the cost of regular hardwood floors. Laminate floors boast all of the same beauty and aesthetics as the real thing but are much easier to take care of. Laminate floors are manufactured to already have a shine. Use of commercial products will dull your floors. If the floor needs an extra boost to get up the dirt and grime, there's a simple vinegar and water solution that make floors look shiny again.
