What does everyone use to clean their oak floors?

We bought some WOCA wood cleaner for our engineered oak when it was installed and with all the mud the kids bring into the house it won't be long before we need some more. Just wondering what other people use?

Mr Sheen, dusters and elbow grease! Makes the floor lovely and slippy for a day or two, but noone seems to mind too much.

Bona floor cleaner is brilliant and once you've bought it once and got the spray bottle you can buy a bottle of concentrate for about £5 and add a capful to water to make up new spray bottles so it lasts forever. Their microfibre mop thingy is really good as well and the cloth on the head is washable so lasts for ages too. Works really well on our pine floors which have to contend with a muddy

PS also Bona cleaner doesn't leave the floor like an ice rink which my old cleaner used to (causing huge scratches made by dog trying to stop slipping....)

Nothing harsh!

Stardrops and hot water with a microfibre mop.

I hoover mine, tackles any grubby areas by hand then mop all over, just be careful to not get it too wet

'tackles' should read 'tackle' - sorry.

Linseed oil.

I bought some floor cleaner in Lakeland for wooden floors, B&Q do some as well - that with an ordinary Vileda mop but squeeze the mop so only just damp.

I use a Flash Power Mop for my oak floors.
