Hi! I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to wash laminate flooring. This is something that I am passionate about. I have friends who own a hardwood flooring company and they swear by this, so get a pen and paper, and write this down. Vinegar and water. If you have a house or you live somewhere, you need to have vinegar and water on hand at all times. It cleans everything, it cleans your floors, your counter tops, your bath tubs, your windows. Have a spray bottle of, you know, I would say about a fourth, fifth or fourth way full of vinegar and the rest, water. Use this for all of your cleaning needs. It's so inexpensive, it doesn't smell flowery or piny, but when you do your research you find out that all those smells you think smell good are really harmful to you and your family. They create indoor air pollution, so vinegar and water, vinegar and water, vinegar and water. For laminate floors, the perfect thing, any hardwood person will tell you this. Well, first let me show you, obviously. You need to sweep, get any debris swept up. Some people vacuum, I say, if your problem is pet hair, vacuum. If you don't have pets in the house, sweep, or you can alternate. It's really up to you. May sweep this little, tiny bit of debris out of the way just for demonstration purposes. Now, just grab your mop, and you can get a bucket of vinegar and water, and have it handy if you want, but it works just as well, and it's almost easier to just have your spray bottle of vinegar and water. Spray it on the floor and then mop. The great thing about vinegar is it evaporates and dries really quickly, so you don't have to worry about your kids, slippin' and fallin', or your husband, unless you want them to. In that case, don't use vinegar, ha ha, just kidding. And it's that simple, vinegar is also a disinfectant, so this is really healthy and wonderful, and cheap, and easy way to clean your house. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you wash laminate flooring.
