  • If you have natural unsealed wood floors (which you probably don’t), you can use linseed oil with a rag, allow it to soak in for a little while, and then mop it up with a little more oil.

    For sealed floors, you can use 1 part white vinegar to 1 part vegetable oil to give it a great shine. Just combine the two, grab a rag, and rub it in like you are polishing a car. The shine will blow you away.

    I would still say clean with your regular vinegar mixture FIRST, and go back over it for shine...

  • I use this one from walmart called babyganics! It is so pure that you can actually drink it with no side effects whatsoever! Greta suff, and it smells good (lilac)
