Laminate floors oftentimes look streaky and hazy after being cleaned…which shouldn’t be the case after all your effort! Whip up this miracle laminate floor cleaner and use in a spray bottle with a flat head microfiber mop to get rid of those streaks for good.

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar 
  • 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol 
  • 10 drops of your favourite essential oil (optional) 

Mix these ingredients together in a clean spray bottle and shake well.  Spray onto a section of the floor and mop along the direction of the wood grain to reveal a beautiful, streak-free shine!

  1. I’ve only used store bought laminate cleaners and I have the haze. Your site gives a recipe that includes vinegar and alcohol. Are you aware that manufacturers of laminate floors say that these products can destroy the finish of laminate floors?

    • Mary, I’ve used this recipe for a few years and my floors look great. Many flooring manufacturers also make laminate floor cleaners as well, so of course they don’t want you to make your own cleaner. They want you to buy theirs.

    • I’m planning on using my Swiffer Sweeper Dry Mop with the replaceable cloths. I used it before with a Scented Vinegars and Water mixture and it worked great.

  2. I watched your video a few months ago where you visited the laminate floor factory in Pennsylvania. On that video it seemed that you recommended only using store-bought, specifically formulated laminate floor cleaner. Just wondering what changed your mind and if you’ve tried this recipe? Thanks! Also, your videos are so well done and contain so much great information!
