One of the great things about doing this 365 days blog is that if he forces me to do things I wouldn't normally do it. Like cleaning my floor. Well I clean my floors, but not as often as it should be. I only hate act it to a very, very big degree! At lower I now have a thick duty floor cleaner that makes it less hard.

The kitchen isn't really bad. I love parquet flooring because damp tissue paper will do the job most of the time. But the baths? Now that's a different story.

I live in a male house. Anyone with children knows what a "boy bath smell" is. I swear it's in the walls. I can wipe all the surfaces in there and rub the floor on my hands and knees and still wander around the house like the Oscar the Grouch version of the Glade plug-in. 

This recipe is for the tough cleaning as in a commercial kitchen. Designed as a grease cutter. But what attract me to pin was fact that someone wrote in description "It smel great".

The trouble with employ detergents that obtain ammonia like Pine-Sol in the bathroom is that they making urine odor worse. And why use expensive chemicals when you don't have to? Seriously, my bathroom smells great as the floors look clean. At least for the next 11 seconds.

* Ingredients :

° 1/3 cup white vinegar

° 1/3 cup washing soda (can be found in the laundry aisle of the grocery store)

° 2 gallons tap water, very warm water

Put all ingredients in a bucket and mix well until foamy.

Rinsing is not required, but wiping with a towel afterward gives a nice, clean finish

If you are look for a good solution to cleaning wood floor, this is the one. I've tested several floor cleaner mixtures and loved how fresh and clean the floor is with a little spray of this and a good dust mop.
