  • I clean ours with a a bucket of hot water and pinesol on my hands and knees with a cloth.
    I use a sponge mop for quick touch ups in between. I clean the floors by hand 1-2x week, depending on my mood.
    Every mop that I've used doesnt ever get the floors as clean as I would like them to be, thats why I do it like that. And the whole house (other than the kids bedrooms) are hardwood floors.
    Ugh. lol.

  • I have a Libman Wonder mop. It works great! The heads are removable & machine washable. They also sell extra heads separately, so you can get however many you need. The mop has little scrubby spots on it & really picks up yuckies :) They carry them at Target, BTW.
    I had a Shark mop before the Libman & it SUCKS. I have textured linoleum, & the cloth doesn't pick up in all the little grooves, so my floor was always dirty.

  • I like my Libman wonder mop.
    I use vinegar water to clean my floors.
    Pine based cleaners attract dirt.
