Steam mop with vinegar/water mixture. Works for wood floors and tile. It stinks for a few minutes but the smell goes away.

I use vinegar but I soak citrus fruit peelings in it for two weeks. Then dilute it with equal part water. It smells good. I just use whatever to have. Right now I'm making grapefruit.

Soak te peelings for a couple weeks before you add the water. And random tip don't open the jar and take a big whiff. I burnt my sinuses haha. It's very strong citrusy before it gets diluted haha

7 cups HOT HOT water 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1/4 cup lemon juice works great!! Also on bathroom floors I use 4 cups HOT HOT water and 4TBS mouthwash (sanitizes and leaves the bathroom smelling amazing!!!)

I have a bona mop and I just put my vinegar cleaner in it instead of refilling it with their stuff. They sell empty mops now made just to put your own cleaners in. Idk how much they cost but it has to be cheaper than buying swifter pad refills all the time. Mine has a cloth pad on it.
