Make Your Own Tile Floor Spray Cleaner

Are you still spending money on store bought floor cleaning products such as floor sprays and Swiffer mop pads?  I did, too, (for far too long, I might add) before I discovered there was a better, far less expensive, more eco-friendly way.  And its super easy to boot!  You probably have all the ingredients on hand already!

Here's what you need:  (For a typical size spray bottle)

  • 1 cup Distilled Water
  • 1 cup White Vinegar
  • 1 cup Alcohol
  • Squirt of Castile Soap or Dish soap
  • (Optional) Add choice of essential oils such as Tea tree, known for its antibacterial properties.

  1. Just pour all ingredients into the bottle and give a shake. That's it! 
  2. If you want to make a gallon size, like I do, just make triple the recipe.

To use:
  1. You'll want to be sure to give it a quick shake each time you use it to distribute the soap inside sufficiently. 
  2. Simply spray and mop.  I use a large hardwood floor mop with washable pads (less waste, more eco-friendly).
