Hi there! Today, I am sharing how to clean and restore your hardwood floors organically. I am in cleaning mode in case you have not noticed.
Being housebound will do that to ya! Did you miss how to clean your stove grates?
Real Hardwood floors are beautiful, no doubt. However they do over time show some wear and tear and the natural beauty and luster becomes dull over time.
You can pay professionally to have them restored, or diy them yourself.That is truly a mess and costs time and money. I am sure someday we will have to break down and do that, however in the mean time I found a natural solution that worked like a charm! This was so simple and much to my surprise not slippery. I did a test area before hand to be sure we would not be slipping and sliding all over the place.
DON’T ever pledge your floors, just sayin’!
1/2 cup of lemon juice
3/4 cups of Olive oil
1 gallon of hot water.
NEVER saturate the floor with water. Make sure the mop is rung out well. You should NOT splatter water on the floor, that indeed can cause damage to your hardwood floors, the water can seep through and cause buckling.
These are the before
Under the bar stools in our kitchen are probably where we get the most wear and tear. The boys sit there and slide all over the stools.
I do have felt on the legs, but still, it just gets worn out and scratched.
You can let this dry naturally, however I took an old t-shirt and went around the kitchen with my foot.
Just to more or less buff it.
They really did turn out nice. The fact that my husband even noticed, told me everything!
Now to do the rest of the house!
Thanks for stopping over today.
