    Baby wipes, dirty wet towels ( just before they go in the wash)... Sometimes I mop.

    I have a relative who installs timber floors so know a bit about it. Their best advice is to use warm water with a dash of methylated spirits to clean. Often the film on floors is from cleaning products themselves. Never buy the timber floor cleaning detergents you find in supermarkets!

    Also, we have proper timber floors and you can use a steam mop but it has to be the least steam and not used if there is any wear in the sealer where the moisture can get in. It's just a matter of being careful.

    Metho is also good for spot cleaning sticky bits, marks etc.

    Oh...the metho and water is great for tiles too. My last house was all tiles and we never used anything else. Using detergent attracts dust etc to stick to the film.

    And...if you don't like the idea if using metho all the time, use it to remove the film then use something else natural that's not a detergent to stop the film returning.

    Clean floors are a must for me!! Hate dirty floors with a passion lol

    I have polished concrete so it's very shiny and prone to streaking.
    I vacuum and then mop with an enjo mop (the yellow fibre for shiny floors). I'll use a spray bottle mixed with water and a bit if eucalyptus oil. I'll spray an area then mop over it. This keeps them streak free, any detergents/cleaners will streak.

    I also find it's best if I mop an area, remove the fibre, rinse under water, replace and cont to mop. That way your not putting the dirty mop head everywhere.

    I have a huge house and It takes me all of 10mins to mop the whole place,

    I use vinegar and water with a little bit of detergent. Seems to work ok for me!

    Success!! Super hot water and a little dish detergent seems to be the winning combo. No streaks so far and no awful icky residue.
