DIY Hardwood Floor Cleaner


For refillable mops, use 1 tablespoon vinegar for every 16 ounces of liquid.


  1. Bring 1 cup of water to boil and steep the black tea bag, allowing it to cool to room temperature.
  2. Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water.
  3. Add the black tea, olive oil and vinegar.
  4. Use with a mop to clean floors.
  5. Dry mop after cleaning if floors are too slippery.
  6. Don't use this on waxed or untreated hardwood. The best way to clean those floors is with a wet cloth.
