Hey, I'm Ann Myrick, and I'm going to show you how to clean a hardwood floor. There are many products out there that you can buy, but today I'm going to show you how to clean a floor with just normal products you have around your house. I'm going to use vinegar. I have a bucket of hot water already, and about a fourth of a cup of vinegar that I have already poured in to the bucket. You sweep your floor first to get all the dust off, and then you put your mop in. And since it's a hardwood floor, you want to squeeze your sponge out very well, and then you're going to go just back and forth, all the way across the floor. And with vinegar, you really do not have to go back and rinse, so it could be a water vinegar mixture. So that's how you clean a hardwood floor with vinegar, but also, there's commercial products out there. You can also use those, keep in mind to read the directions, because each product is different. I'm Ann Myrick, and that's how you clean a hardwood floor.
