i use a broom and sweep my hard wood floors first. then i take a bucket
and with hot steaming hot water put murphys oil soap in it and mop all
the floors. i have no carpet. then take a towel and dri the floors by
foot or hand but compleatly dry. then wait a hour and if i walk bear
foot and it feels not clean to the bottom of my feet i repeat but i
have only had to do this a few times. (after people walked on the
floor with muddy work boots). and then if i see any spots in the
wood that look like a different color i take a cloth and rub mineral
oil into that spot to keep the wood healthy.
yes very old fashoned way, but this is the house my great grandmother
lived in and thats what she did too. so 5 generations have lived in
this house now because my daughter is #5. sweet now thats recycleing.
