Mine need doing desperately and I'm sick of the sticky mess thats left behind by my vax floor spray.

Any ideas?

Zoflora and water with a mop

ImSoTakei Sun 16-Oct-16 19:08:19

Isn't that plant food? :/

Cif wood floor cleaner.

Best thing is a tiny drop of washing up liquid and warm water

E-mop. Hot water only required, but I use a tiny spray of dettol on it to ensure it's clean.

Steam mop

For a quick wipe over floor wipes. For a bigger clean zoflora in hot water with ecloths.

Both on my hands and knees, I don't like mops.

Doesn't anyone use flash and a mop?

ayeokthen Sun 16-Oct-16 19:21:36

I sometimes use the flash wood floor cleaner, the other ones smell too strong.

I like the cif floor one, doesn't leave a residue. Drop of zoflora for that lovely lingering smell

I use flash and a mop. But I'm probably ruining the laminate... Am I?

ayeokthen Sun 16-Oct-16 19:28:43

I don't think so Giraffe it's not wrecked mine and it's been down 6 years.

ayeokthen Sun 16-Oct-16 19:29:06

I've used bleach, flash, floor cleaner and all sorts!

E-mop and a spray of Method

My cleaner uses a steam mop.
(I'm disabled - used to do it myself)

ImSoTakei Sun 16-Oct-16 20:14:18

I had a steam mop, 2 infact and they just left the floor soaking wet.

Another one for diluted Zoflora and a squeezy mop after vacuuming, roughly every three days.

Another vote for Zoflora (the fresh linen one smells amazing) and hot water.

I use HG Laminate Floor wash with a mop and bucket.

user1477307675 Mon 24-Oct-16 14:04:08

Laminate floor cleaner - dilute in hot water and use a sponge cleaner that can be squeezed dry.

J0kersSmile Mon 24-Oct-16 14:09:16

I just hoover then mop using hot water, washing up liquid and a little bit of bleach. Laminate has been down eleven years in January and it was the cheapest one in bnq.

I was told by fitters not to get the flooring too wet. The reason being that the water would get between the boards and there is a kind of felt/rubber type under foam. So use wipes or damp cloths.

I recently bought an ecloth mop and it's great. Only leaves the floor very slightly damp.

AppleMagic where did you buy your ecloth mop? Sounds really useful.
