You got those beautiful wood floors and you're probably wondering what products should I use on my floors. So I'm Cyn Deer, I'm with Three's Company Too and I'm going to give you a couple of inside hints. Ok one of the things you can, you always want to either use a dust mop or a vacuum or even a broom to pick up your debris. But if you are going to clean it, you can use straight water, but you don't want to leave it wet. You can use a combination of like a glass cleaner diluted in water and you know in your bucket of water like about a quarter cup to about a gallon of water would be good for your cleaning product to mop the floor. You can also use an ammonia in water just to mop it but it's again it's a damp mop because if you, you don't want to leave a lot of water and then you want to dry it. One product you really don't want to use or any kind of other product is like a wax based product. Like a Pledge because if you do what will happen is it will become really slick you know, very waxed and you'll turn into Tom Cruise who skates along the wood floor. You don't want to do that. So you want to just stick to basics your water is going to work fine, or Windex and water will be just as good. So this is how to keep your wood floors beautiful and I'm Cyn Deer. Have a great day.
