This is really not an AIBU....so I guess the AIBU could be......AIBU to ask a housekeeping question here?? grin (posting here for traffic!)

Basically.....am house sitting for friend who is away....and for various reasons is uncontactable right now.

There is varnished wood floor throughout.

DS has trodden in a delightful combination of cat shit (not her cat!) and rotten apple and spread it through the kitchen before I could stop him.
Luckily the kitchen is easy to cordon off....but obv I need to clean the floor.

Here's the thing...

I have only ever had laminate and carpet...I know nothing about wood flooring.
She doesn't have a mop or bucket, just a weird sgueegee thing on a mop handle.

No obvious other cleaning materials...and def no floor cleaner.

WTAF do I clean the floor with???

Help and suggestions please??!

If there really isn't any wood floor cleaner (which is low foam), just use washing uo liquid solution. Real wood, especially varnished is very tough - they make boats out if it! smile

Oh and because I've been on here long enough to know some of the questions I will get......

*It's her apple tree, and she knows the windfalls are rotting

*Yes it's fine I have DS and DDog here (her idea- ice garden/fire etc)

*Yes I asked loads of questions, but never really thought about the floor

*No I can't get hold of her for at least 2 days

*She works on a farm, and has no problem with mud/shite random crap (her hall is filled with muddy boots)

Soapy water will be fine, don't let it pool though & go over it straight after cleaning it with a dry cloth to dry it.

Ok....warm soapy water, don't let it pool, dry it quickly...

I use this on wooden (oak) floors.
