    HFN:Understanding and Caring for Hardwood Floors

    For an easy and cheap floor cleaning alternative try mixing 1/2 cup of white vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water. This method of using vinegar to clean hardwood floors is an easy and safe solution to keeping your floor looking it's best. Be cautious what you put on your wood surface as oils or furniture polish can make a floor very slippery.

    Another alternative of utilizing vinegar to clean a hardwood floor is in products such as Murphy's oil soap. It works really well and gives a beautiful shine to wood surfaces. As far as longevity goes, nothing beats good ole preventative maintenance. Keep dirt off your floors and you'll have a beautiful shine for many years to come.
