Laminate floors are durable, come in a variety of colours and designs, and best of all, are easy to clean. They are a great low-maintenance choice for flooring. Though you could spend a fortune on various cleaning products that can leave chemical streaks behind, cleaning your laminate floors brilliantly and without streaks involves only using a few household items, thanks to laminate's non-porous surface and stain-resistant qualities.

Mix 4.5 litres (1 gallon) of warm water with 36 to 54 ml (2 to 3 tbsp) of regular household vinegar. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. If your floor is especially dingy, you can use up to 72 ml (4 tbsp of vinegar), but too much can leave your room with an unpleasant odour.

Spray the homemade cleaner directly on your floor and use a mop to scrub it. Dirt and grime should come up easily, and you will not see any streaks.

Rinse the mop with warm water and then go over the floor once again to pick up any residue left behind.

Allow the floor to dry naturally.


It is important to sweep or vacuum before you start mopping, so you don't drag dust or dirt particles around the floor while you are mopping. If you have some stubborn stains, you can spray extra cleaner directly on the stain and use a scouring sponge to pick them up.
