What do you use to clean your floors?

I have this white tile floor throughout my house and it has been such a hassle to upkeep.  I vacuum, swifter, mop and then steam mop it.  The next day it looks like nothing has been done.  What is your floor maintenance routine?

I wash it once a week with dish soap, sweep daily, and touch it up daily with a steam mop.

I think I'm going to steam mop daily as well.  I normally sweep and swifter daily and then mop and steam mop weekly.

I absolutely hated the swifter. I got rid of that thing so quickly. I had the original one and then I had the one that you can fill with your own cleaner and they never did the job right.

I use our rainbow vacuum at least twice a week (we have wood floors) & mop as needed.

My sympathies, white tile shows EVERYTHING! Can you get everyone to take off their shoes when they come in? I would sweep all the time and then slide around with wet rags on my feet and do the spots and traffic areas daily.

Sorry you're having to deal with that.  I got rid of my white tile and got laminate wood flooring. And it's much easier to keep up. I use an Oreck cleaner, similar to a Swiffer, but with a reusable pad.
