We have tiles and a floating timber floor. Seems no matter what I try I can't get the floors mopped well without leaving a greasy film on them that looks worse after a day or so than the original dirty floors.
I have tried vinegar mixes, hot water alone, specialty floor cleaners and more with no success
We can't use a steam mop unfortunately due to the timer boards- it isn't recommended for the floating floor.
So how do you clean your floor? I'm willing to try anything.

We have both tiles and wooden floor boards and we have an old style mop and bucket with rollers and use EarthChoice Floor and Surface liquid. I fill the bucket with really hot water - as hot as I can get it. Our tiles and the wood always come up really well after they have been mopped, no greasy film or streaks.
Our hot water does run very hot so maybe try boiling the kettle and adding that to your bucket.

I have tiles and polished hardwood floors.
I use a sabco spray mop and earth choice timber floor cleaner.
I dont find it leaves streaks

Maybe try a better mop rather than different detergents. Masters have a microfibre one ($40-ish) that comes with a bucket that has a spinner in it (looks like lettuce spinner) after a wet mop I then give it extra 'spins' that dries it out much easier with less residue on the tile surface. I have polished gloss tiles and they are impossible until I found this.

Thanks for the tips!! Enjo might be worth a look in. I have heard a few good things about the range but the price always scares me. Might be worth it if it does the job though.

I've been using Ajax (baking soda one) with hot water. I only have laminate floors and it leaves them nice. Most others I've used leave a slight sticky feel.
