Sometimes if you only use mop soap and water, the floor is difficult to shine and becomes rough.

  7 April 2024 16:30 - The floor of the house is one of the areas that gets dirty easily, either because of dust or dirt carried by your feet when you enter the house. Not only that, sometimes food or drink spills directly onto the floor. If it's like this, like it or not, the floor has to be mopped straight away so it's not slippery.

When mopping the floor, a number of people usually rely on floor cleaning fluids that are sold on the market. Just mix the floor cleaning fluid with enough water then sprinkle it evenly on the floor. Then smooth and wipe the entire surface of the floor using a mop.

However, sometimes if you only use mop soap and water, the floor is difficult to shine and becomes rough. It's not surprising that some people end up adding vinegar as a cleaning mixture. The addition of this kitchen ingredient is considered effective in making the appearance of the floor more shiny and rough.

But don't just use vinegar, it turns out there are other cleaning agents that can be used to mop floors. The method was demonstrated by TikTok user @bella_fidellia. In the video upload, this young mother is seen replacing vinegar with two other kitchen ingredients. Curious about how?
