How to Clean Your Laminated Floor and Leave it Streak Free

Laminate floors are durable, come in a variety of colors and designs, and best of all, are easy to clean. They are a great low-maintenance choice for flooring. Though you could spend a fortune on various cleaning products that can leave chemical streaks behind, cleaning your laminate floors brilliantly and without streaks involves only using a few household items, thanks to laminate's non-porous surface and stain-resistant qualities.

Keep your laminate floors shiny and streak free with a simple cleaning method.

Step 1

Mix 1 gallon of warm water with 2 to 3 tbsp. of regular household vinegar. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. If your floor is especially dingy, you can use up to 4 tbsp. of vinegar, but too much can leave your room with an unpleasant odor.

Step 2

Spray the homemade cleaner directly on your floor and use a mop to scrub it. Dirt and grime should come up easily, and you will not see any streaks.

Step 3

Rinse the mop with warm water and then go over the floor once again to pick up any residue left behind.

Step 4

Allow the floor to dry naturally.
