Engineered hardwood floors are becoming increasingly popular. (wood image by Zbigniew Nowak from

Engineered hardwood flooring is preferred by many because of its stability and function. The flooring is made of hardwood or plywood. A hardwood veneer is then glued to the top of the hardwood/plywood, giving it the look of a hardwood floor. Like regular wood flooring, the hardwood veneer is sealed, leaving it safe to polish it. However, because it's not "real" wood, it can not be treated with wood polish. Engineered hardwood floors can, however, be treated with simple at-home ingredients.

Pour 3 cups of white vinegar into a clean spray bottle.

Pour 6 cups of water into the same spray bottle. Shake the bottle up thoroughly to combine the cleaning solution.

Spray an even mist of the cleaning solution onto the floor (this solution is good for one room, approximately 12 by 12 feet).

Wipe the solution up using a lint-free cloth. Wipe the solution up thoroughly so that none of the solution is left on the floor.
