Would you like to know how to clean tile floors without harsh chemicals? Would you like to avoid streaks, and soap reside, which could lead to slipping? Would you like to save money by cleaning your tiled floors with a common household ingredient instead of paying for the advertizing and marketing budgets of commercial cleaners? I can tell you how in just word: vinegar. So if you'd like to learn how to clean tile floors with simple vinegar, read on.
Sweeping the floor helps to prepare them. You can skip this step if there is no visible dust or crumbs. Otherwise, it's a good idea to sweep them so that you don't dirty your water as quickly.
Pour a cup of vinegar into a dishpan. Add a gallon of cool water. Dipping the mop in in the next step will stir it up enough so you don't need to do extra here.
Dunk your mop in in the bucket, lift it a few inches above the water, and wring out the excess from the mop's sponge. This will help speed up drying time.
In a pushing motion, run the mop parallel to the side of the room. Bring it back towards you at an angle, and then push it parallel again. Basically, when you're first learning how to clean tile floors, imagine that you are drawing skinny capital "Ns" with your mop. Push harder if you feel like your floors need a good scrub. When you push the mop, only push it as far as is comfortable for your arm span. This will probably be about 3 feet.
After about 3 or 4 "Ns," repeat step 3 to rinse your mop and have clearer water. Continue step 4 in a methodical grid pattern around your room or rooms. If your water gets murky, dump it out and repeat step 2.
That's all there is to it when you want to learn how to clean tile floors with vinegar. Good luck!
