The following recipe is designed specifically for heavy-duty floor cleaning, particularly in high-traffic areas like commercial kitchens. This homemade cleaner is highly effective at cutting through grease, and it also worked wonders on my own kitchen floor.
What’s more, the cleaner emits a refreshing scent, a stark contrast to typical commercial floor cleaners like Pine-Sol or ammonia-based ones that tend to amplify unwanted odors.
1/4 cup of white vinegar
1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap (Blue Dawn is particularly recommended due to its exceptional cleaning power.)
1/4 cup of washing soda (This is easily accessible in the laundry section of most grocery stores.)
2 gallons of tap water, preferably warm
Start by gathering all the ingredients and a large bucket.
Pour all of the ingredients into the bucket.
Mix them together thoroughly until a soapy solution is achieved.
Apply the solution liberally to the area you want to clean, using a mop to spread and scrub.
There is no need to rinse the floor after mopping. However, for a pristine finish, you can wipe down the cleaned area with a dry towel.
Please note that this heavy-duty cleaner is not advisable for waxed floors as it may cause the wax coating to clump and deteriorate.
