As with any type of flooring, wood floors can sometimes collect sticky residue from food and drink spills or similar substances. When this happens, you need to figure out a cleaning routine that dissolves all of the sticky residue. Also keep in mind that the solution you use must be safe for the wood flooring itself; harsh chemicals that might be effective in cleaning up the sticky substances also can discolour and damage the wood itself.

Things you need
Mix 1 gallon warm water and 1 cup white vinegar in a bucket.
Swish your mop in the bucket and squeeze the mop out well. Get out all excess moisture so no water is dripping from the mop.
Wipe the mop over the sticky residue and repeat as needed until all of the substance is removed.
Let the floor air dry. Feel to see if any sticky residue is present and repeat the process if needed.
