We've just moved into a house with wooden floor throughout (other than kitchen and bathrooms). The house has needed rather a lot of cleaning to say the least. The wood is modern boards, not waxed but a coating on them (acrylic varnish?).
All the floors downstairs near the kitchen are a bit sticky and greasy, like a fair bit of grime build up over the years. I've managed to sort out the kitchen floor (steaming and scrubbing black grouting and mopping with ammonia in hot soapy water), but the wooden floors nearby still feel a bit sticky.
I've been cleaning it with a spray and microfibre mop, with diluted Astonish wood floor cleaner in the spray. It cleans really well elsewhere in the house but doesn't seem enough for the really greasy area.
Is there something I can use as a one off to strip off the grease without ruining the floor?
Sugar soap - brilliant on grease and not damaging to the material you are cleaning. I use it to clean kitchen units, tiles, etc and used it to clean a grimy wall when we moved into our house - painted lining paper. Worked brilliantly and the wall looked freshly painted.
