I LOVE a clean floor...

I LOVE Pinterest!!  I find some great stuff there.  I recently saw a post about a simple floor cleaner.  The picture caught my eye, it was 3 really dirty Swiffer pads.  Of course my curiosity got the best of me, and I clicked on the picture.  The floor cleaner called for 3 ingredients and I already had 2 on hand, so I thought..."What the heck!!"  I went to the store to buy the 3rd ingredient and whipped up a batch.  I gave it a shot and let me tell you, it is the BEST floor cleaner EVER people!! 

My entry way, kitchen and family room are tile, and that is the area that gets the dirtiest (mostly doggie paw prints).  I also used it on my stained concrete and it worked like a charm.  My floors not only looked clean, but felt clean.  I am not sure about using this cleaner on hard wood floors, I use THIS on mine.

So let me share the recipe, it is easy peasy!!  (I made a smaller batch than what is called for in the original post).  Original blog post is HERE.

7 cups water
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dr Bonner's Castille Soap (I bought the peppermint).

I use a refillable mop, THIS one to be exact, so I just fill'er up and mop away!!  I even put some in a spray bottle for spot cleaning in between mopping (I am always cleaning near the back door and by the doggie water bowl).  I like the smell too!! 

Let me know if you give it a try and how you like it!!  Ashley tried it and she LOVES it too (that's 2 for 2!).

Happy Mopping!!
Enjoy Today!

Did you find the Dr Bonners Castile soap at a store?

I found the soap at Sprouts. I'm sure Whole Foods would have it too.

Maybe I'll try this "recipe" instead of the one that calls for Dawn dish soap. My floors were clean but the residue was a mess.

I saw this one. Not sure what the equivalent to Dr Bonners soap is in Australia :( would love to try it as I have lots of tiles too.
