I have tried everything to get my hardwood floors clean after the snow and salt left them so filthy and but everything I tried kept leaving a film of grime that wouldn’t go away. I tried this homemade solution minus the essential oils and while it didn’t smell the best, my floors came out super clean and no more grime! Next time I’ll definitely add some essential oils to make it smell a little nicer but overall, I’m completely satisfied with the results.
