RealSimple: A Guide to Cleaning Household Surfaces

16 of 19

Hardwood Flooring

Use: A few drops of dish-washing liquid or all-purpose cleanser and warm water.

Tools: A well-wrung-out cloth, sponge, or mop.

Tips: Sweep or vacuum frequently to remove grit. Don't wet mop; water will damage the finish. Don't apply wax to a floor coated with urethane or polyurethane. Don't apply sprays or oils meant for wood furniture; they will make floors slippery.

Tough stains: Scrub gently with a nylon pad dampened with dishwashing liquid.
