It is Daily Dose of Thrifty time and we are going to share a way to re-purpose all of that mouthwash on your shelves to disinfect and degrease/degunk your laminate floors!
Two of our bathrooms have laminate flooring. We have found this to be a great solution to really getting the floor clean and smelling great! In fact, it is the perfect scent for a bathroom. It is not real strong with the recipe below! In addition, your floors get very clean, the floors around the toilet get clean and smelling nice. Not only that, but we have even seen it whiten the caulking in an instant!
This solution seems to be the perfect amount for cleaning the two bathrooms:
- 2 cups of warm/hot water
- Mix with 1 tablespoon of mouthwash
Increase/decrease from this formula based on how much you need. We recommend Listerine as it is a tough mouthwash, but most all should work fine.
- This is not for wood floors
- We also have Pergo flooring on our main level and use a natural homemade cleaner (that we will share soon) and we have not tried this as its not the same as classic laminate.
- Also, we would discourage you from using Agent Cool Blue mouthwash (or others with apparent dye) as it is intended to stain kid’s teeth so they can see where they would brush! It probably won’t do anything with the diluted solution, but better safe than sorry.
