How To Clean Wood Floors: Marks and Stains

1. – Scuff marks can be easily removed with a tennis ball. – Save your back by cutting an X in the ball then slipping it over the end of a broom or mop. After dust mopping, use the ball to buff away scuffs from shoes and furniture.

2. – Greasy marks can often be erased. – Literally. After dust mopping, grab a pencil and rub the mark with the pink eraser then wipe with a clean, damp cloth.

3. – Sticky marks from things like tape should be treated by rubbing them lightly with olive or vegetable oil. – Allow the oil to sit in place for a few minutes, then wipe away with a microfiber cloth. Clean the area afterward to remove the oil.

4. – Water stains leave white marks, but they’re fairly easy to remove. – First, wait a couple of days to let the area completely dry out. Next, cover the spot with a dry washcloth and run a warm iron over it (NO steam), keeping the iron in constant motion, for a couple of minutes. If the stain persists, rub the area very firmly with a microfiber cloth dipped in lemon oil. Wipe the oil away once the stain disappears then follow with a wood floor cleaner to remove oil residue.

5. – Nail polish and paint usually comes up easily with rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol.

6. – Pet stains should be cleaned immediately by mopping up the mess then wiping with a 1:4 vinegar-water solution to get rid of the odor.
