Whats the best thing to clean them with? I hate bleach. Flash/Cif floor cleaner leaves it feeling sticky.Confused

The best thing i would advise is a steam mop works a treat for me :)

I just use washing up liquid, very hot water and a very tightly wrung out mop

How about an E Cloth mop?.

You need a ph neutral product, as a cleaning company we use a product called 'sals suds' it's not cheap but a little goes a long way so lasts a long time and it will not harm your surfeces like acid based or alkali based products will.

You possibly need to use less of whatever the cleaning product is and very hot water. That's all I've done to clean hard floors and they've never been sticky.

We use a steam mop on a lower setting. For the odd spill we wipe it then use soapy water to clean it.

I thought steam mops weren't recommended on laminate.
Well diluted floor cleaner or a clean water rinse.

Pointlessfan · 13/10/2015 13:32

I don't think they are which is why I use a low heat setting. Maybe test a discreet area first.

as someone else said if your floor is being left sticky sounds like your using too much product, ive never been left with sticky floors when ive mopped them.

I use the flat head mop thing from Lakeland, blue head for wet, white for dusting first, and a tiny spray of Method floor cleaner. Nothing is sticky.

We use a e cloth on ours with just water, but after a while it was getting like a film on it (it's a dark floor). So bought HG laminate floor cleaner and shine from Amazon and its transformed it.

You just dilute it in a bucket of water, wring your e cloth floor mop out in it and of you go - beautiful shiny floor, which is not slippy.
