  • I use a Swiffer wet jet. The Swiffer cleaning fluid works very well.

  • I use pinesol in a spray bottle and my swiffer mop just about everyday. Then about once a week I mop with my regular mop and then get down on my knees and use a washcloth and scrub. Then I use wax, it helps the looks of the floor a lot.

  • I use a regular mop and the Mr. Clean all-purpose cleaner with Febreeze...the purple one...I love the way it smells and I can use it on my hard-wood floor too!

  • I use Mr.Clean and I use a dish rag & Mop. I fill the sink with warm water & Mr.clean, soak and lightly ring out the rag. I lay the rag out flat on the flroor and wash the floor by pushing it around under the mop. (mop must be wet too). It gets in all the nooks & crannies. My floors sparkle. I'm a clean freak.

  • I'm thinking about getting a Shark Steamer. I use vinegar and hot water with a mop, but I don't think they are very clean.

  • I use a Shark steam mop. If there is a wet messy spill I clean that up first with a wet rag..then steam mop.

  • I am a big fan of the T-Bar mops. You put a large clean towl (like a hand towel) on for every cleaning and you are not constantly replacing the pads that go to the more fancy models. Model # 33675 just buy a long bar to twist to the end:)

  • Swiffer wet jet! I use it on everything & I use the one with the febreze in it.
