  • I wouldnt use the laundry detergent, it will probably leave white residue or even discolour the floor. Do you have any shampoo? You can probably delude shampoo with water and just rinse real good. Good Luck

  • yeah we have shampoo, but im not willing to waste good shampoo to clean floors! ive tried just water and it didnt work..... i dont care if it discolors the floors, they need replacing anyway and after we move they will be.. i just need to get up the popsicle and mud~!

  • Do you have some sort of cleaner like Windex or Spic 'n' Span? Sometimes I resort to spraying down the floor with one or the other and then mopping it up with a wet mop.
