How to Remove Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner promises to not only clean your wood floors, but to remove scratches and scrapes and to leave your floors with a brilliant shine. Unfortunately, repeated use can lead a grimy, streaky buildup that obscures the natural appearance of your flooring. By using commonly available household cleansing materials, however, you can restore your wood floor to its original beauty.

Step 1

Fill a bucket with a half-gallon of warm water and 1 cup of ammonia. Set the bucket on a folded dry rag to keep the ammonia mixture from dripping on the floor. Wearing rubber gloves, take a rag, swirl it in the bucket to mix the ammonia and water together, wring it out and lay it out flat on a corner of your wood floor so that you can work your way out.

Step 2

Leave the rag on the floor for one minute to loosen the Orange Glo. Rinse the rag in the ammonia and water mixture, and then scrub the area that the rag was laying on. Rinse the rag again and scrub the area one more time.

Step 3

Spray the area with an ammonia-based window cleaner and buff with paper towel. Discard the paper towel. Repeat.

Step 4

Move on to the next section until you have removed the Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner from your entire wood floor.

Step 5

Mop your wood floors with a gentle everyday wood floor cleaner to remove any traces of ammonia.
