For each floor material, there is the most suitable natural product. How scratches and stains are removed. For the cooked, linseed oil. For the resin, vinegar, and alcohol.


Every floor can be cleaned, without waste, with the right natural product. And for every type of material, there is the corresponding natural remedy. Instead of spending money to buy detergents full of chemical agents that cause damage to health as well as to the environment, you can create, at home, different detergents depending on the type of floor you have, all totally organic, therefore not harmful, capable of guarantee a truly effective and lasting cleaning.


Let's see together how to make some "do-it-yourself" floor detergents :

  • If you have granite, stone, or marble floors at home, take a bucket, fill it with 3 liters of water and then put 3 tablespoons of baking soda, 10 tablespoons of denatured alcohol, a drop of liquid soap or a tablespoon of soap. Marseille in flakes. Mix well and finally, dip the microfiber rag into it and pass it on the floors: the shine is guaranteed.
  • An excellent eco cleaner (not to be used on marble, granite, or parquet, however) is also the one consisting of a glass of white or apple vinegar poured into 3 liters of hot water. To clean you will need a mop or cloth, possibly in microfiber, and you will have to rinse with more hot water if you have pets at home.
  • The parquet , real or laminate, must be washed with 2 liters of hot water (which already has a strong degreasing power) to which you add 2 tablespoons of Marseille liquid soap: the surface will shine. Never use ammonia because it has a matting effect.
  • Very suitable against scratches, grease stains and urine, it is bicarbonate, so much used by our grandmothers. Sprinkle the baking soda over the stains to be removed and leave to act, then wipe with a damp cloth. As for the urine, first dab with an old towel and then let the baking soda work overnight. In the morning you will wash the floor with plenty of water.
  • The terracotta floor must be cleaned and polished with linseed oil, spread on the surface with a very light veil cloth. Leave it on for a whole night and then, in the morning, wash with 2 liters of water in which you have dissolved 2 tablespoons of Marseille liquid soap: your floor will become shiny again.
  • For the resin floor, opt for a mixture consisting of 5 tablespoons of vinegar, 5 of alcohol, 2 tablespoons of wax and a drop of dish soap, dissolved in a bucket of cold water. Wash with a cloth and do not rinse: the result will satisfy you.
