DIY Laminate Floor Spray/Cleaner

DIY Laminate Floor Spray: How to make your own cleaner for laminate floors.

How to make your own cleaner for laminate floors
I was searching at Target and our local grocery store the other day for spray to clean our laminate
floors, but I couldn't find anything that specified it could be used on laminate floors. This was pretty annoying as getting a toddler in and out of the car isn't enjoyable and neither is listening to him scream after 5 minutes in the cart. I'm a little ticked at Target for not having any "fun" carts... ones with steering wheels usually buy me about 45 minutes at a store, but alas I'm stuck with very short Target trips because they don't have them.

I was trying to keep Baby G quiet while searching the internet on my phone to see if any of these sprays might work for laminate, when I came across a DIY spray. Not sure why I didn't think of this before, but I decided to just make my own when I got home.

I told Daddy B that I was going to make it and he says, "Let me guess... vinegar... blue dawn...?" Haha. He's so clever. Someday when all the four billion cleaners I have are used up, I'm just going to keep a lifetime supply of those ingredients. It would save me so much space.




Recipe for DIY Floor Cleaner:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
  • A few drops of Blue Dawn

Instructions

Mix and spray as needed.


Here are some links to two different laminate floor cleaners that inspired my post:

This is how much you get if you do 1 cup each of vinegar, water,
and rubbing alcohol... plus a few drops of blue dawn.

I just sprayed the floor and wiped it with my swiffer (minus the swiffer spray). I don't really like the swiffer spray for the laminate floors- I actually don't think you're SUPPOSED to use it, but I could be wrong.

Here's my before and after... hope you can see the difference with the picture!

Pretty simple and effective spray. Happy Momma! Now I just need the trick to keep the floors clean... Baby G just dropped his goo'ed lunch all over my clean floor!

Update June 2, 2015: I've since switched to using a steam mop... steam mops just use water to create steam to clean your floors. They're a bit more expensive than a swiffer, but I love that I don't need spray. Check out my blog post about my Bissell Powerfresh Steam Mop
