Hi there, dear friends 😀
Five years ago, I wrote about making our own homemade multi-purpose cleaning citrus fruit enzyme and since then, I have been adding that enzyme to my pail of water for mopping my polished floor tiles. Mopping polished floor tiles can be challenging because if the mopping is not done correctly or the floor wash is not appropriate, unsightly streaks can be seen on the floor .
Although the enzyme water does help make my floor shinier and easier to mop compared to using a commercial floor wash, I recently found out that by adding another natural ingredient to the enzyme water – my mopping job has become more effortless, because the “new and improved” homemade enzyme floor wash gets dirt and grime off the floor even more easily, as evidenced by how fast the pail of water got dirty during mopping – I usually have to change the water before continuing mopping.
I have a large beagle that stays indoor with us, and he slobbers all over the floor! So, I really appreciated the boost that the extra ingredient gave to my enzyme floor wash, because the combination is even more efficient in easily lifting dog slobber, paw prints and dirt effortlessly off my polished floor tiles!
Results ===> a squeaky, shiny clean floor in a jiffy! We walk barefoot at home, and I could really feel the improved clean to the floor with the added ingredient. The floor grouting is also getting lighter and cleaner.
If you have small children, babies who are at the crawling stage, or pets, and you need a really efficient floor wash that is safe for your children and can clean well after dirt caused by your pets, you can make your own all natural floor wash – it is really simple and no rinsing is required after mopping the floor. Now, how easy is that?
New & Improved Homemade Eco & Children-friendly Floor Wash Recipe
1/2 cup of homemade fruit enzyme
1 teaspoon of baking soda
Method ===> add the above to your pail of water (about 10 litres of water for my pail?), mix well and use that for mopping. Change to a new batch of water when the water becomes dirtier, and continue mopping the rest of the floor. No rinsing required.
Have fun trying out your homemade improved natural floor wash and see your floor really shine and gleam!
With best wishes,
