Hardwood Floor Lemon Juice Cleaning & Polishing

Lemons don’t just smell good, they are full of potent acidity that goes a long way in getting something clean. They can be used to kill mold, cut through grease and can leave a surface sparkling. Mixed with other natural cleaners and lemons are a force to be reckoned with. A great recipe for cleaning spots and stains on hardwood floors is mixing 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 cups water in a spray bottle. Mixing 1/2 cup lemon juice and 1 cup olive oil in a bottle and then shaken to produce an emulsion makes a great hardwood floor polish.
