4. Olive oil hardwood floor cleaner
While I usually use Bona hardwood floor cleaner, I have also used this homemade version in a pinch.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup white vinegar
12 drops lemon essential oil (optional)
6 cups hot water
Use on wood and laminate floors
Cost: $.25 per batch
5. Microfiber + water
This isn’t really a cleaning product but it works! When you use a little elbow grease and a damp microfiber cloth, you’ll get up most dirt. This is a great option for dusting and surfaces that you don’t need to disinfect.
These are my favorite microfiber cloths.
