Easy DIY floor cleaner for all floor types

This post is sponsored by Vileda

If you are trying to watch your pennies, you may notice how quickly cleaning products can eat into your budget. With reusable supplies and few common household ingredients, you can effectively clean your home AND save money! Homemade floor cleaner would have to be one of the simplest DIY cleaning recipes.  It’s important to keep your floors clean with people walking from inside to out, babies or pets crawling around or having the doors and windows open to let in the fresh air. These can all spread dust particles and dirt throughout the house. Continue reading for my 2 Budget Friendly Floor Cleaners for all floor types!

It is worth knowing that all floors are different and each has a different technique or DIY cleaning recipe.

 

I first fell in love with my Vileda mop (yes that sounds a little kooky, BUT I am The Organised Housewife and it can make complete sense how cleaning supplies and storage tickle my fancy LOL) shortly after we built our first home over 10 years ago.  It was a huge tiled house and I had 2 toddlers and a new baby.  I was using a mop with a sponge that I found left dirt smears. I then got a steam mop, thinking it was my solution to a hygienic floor with a crawling baby. Boy, I was wrong. I felt like I was putting my back out each time I pushed it around the floor. It was so heavy and I just found the whole process really slow. So, I purchased a new mop – a Vileda UltraMax. Hallelujah, it was a game changer! It made cleaning the floors easier due to it effortlessly gliding across the floor. From that day forward, I haven’t actually minded cleaning the floors.

Vileda have just recently released a new revolutionary wringing mechanism mop, the Vileda UltraMax Easy Twist. They sent me one to trial. Put simply: cleaning the floors has never been so easy… just clean, twist and release!

I like the twist and ring feature as I now have laminate flooring (looks and feels like real wood). They aren’t meant to be wet, so this allows me to wring out the microfibre head really well before wiping over the floors. For quick spills, it’s really easy to dampen and wring the head over the sink (no need for a bucket). For a big clean, I usually use a bucket to have water handy.

The features of the Vileda UltraMax Easy Twist:

  • Revolutionary wringing mechanism wrings out most of the water and helps your floors dry faster. There is no need to hand-wring wet and dirty pads. Twist from the soft grip.
  • Fast and glides so easily across the floor and makes mopping effortless.
  • Hygienic, budget friendly and durable as the microfibre cleaning pad is machine washable and extremely durable so it’s hygienic, convenient and cost effective. Machine wash at 40-60C and hang on the line to dry. Do not use fabric softener, do not tumble dry and do not iron.
  • Fast Release button easily puts the head from wringing position back to flat.
  • Powerful cleaning head contains PowerZone fibres (pictured below) for extra thorough cleaning which helps remove stains and picks up dust particles and hair.
  • Flexibility allows you to move the handle around to get into hard to reach places (i.e. under furniture).
  • Suitable for all hard floors such as vinyl, linoleum, wood, laminate, ceramic tiles, slate and stone floors.
  • Soft bumpers protect your furniture, architraves and/or appliances.

Ultimately, you won’t be needing a new mop for years and this one will save you money as you won’t have to keep on buying the easy to break ones which need replacing regularly.

The UltraMax Easy Twist is available nationally at Woolworths and is currently on special until 29th March.

Here is a video to show you how it works:

Switching from commercial to homemade cleaning products may seem like hard work but, as you can see below, these homemade floor cleaning recipes are really quite simple. You will soon see you’re saving dollars and removing unnecessary chemicals from your home.

Armed with the right cleaning tools, it doesn’t take too much effort to keep the floors spotless.  I always start at the furtherest point of the house and either finish in the laundry, where I potter around for a few minutes until the floors are completely dry, or….. the lounge room, where I sit and relax with the TV for a few minutes.

HOMEMADE DIY FLOOR CLEANER RECIPES

It is best to follow floor manufacturers guidelines because there are many floor types that can’t withstand vinegar, lemon juice, alcohol, oils or too much water. Please always spot test commercial and DIY cleaners.

I have listed below why I use these ingredients:

VINEGAR – the natural acidic vinegar disinfects the floors. The vinegar smell dissipates within a few short minutes once the floors have dried. I use homebrand vinegar found in the salad dressing aisle at the grocery store.

DISHWASHING LIQUID – boosts the cleaning ability, breaks down dirt by cutting through the build up and helps make the floors shine. I like to use Earth brand detergent as it isn’t coloured. Don’t be afraid to open the bottle at the grocery store and check.

HOMEMADE DIY FLOOR CLEANER (WITHOUT VINEGAR)

This homemade floor cleaner without vinegar is best used on laminate, hardwood, bamboo, concrete and linoleum floors. Many hardwood floors are polished or sealed to protect them from stains and water damage. Using vinegar on these types will stain the polish or dull wooden floors over time.

  • Half fill bucket of water with warm water
  • Add 1/4 cup of mild dishwashing liquid, then gently stir.

When using on laminate, dip the mop into the solution and wring out as much excess water as you can as laminate floors can not get too wet (you don’t want water to go under the planks and swell). Move your mop along the grain for the best result.

HOMEMADE DIY FLOOR CLEANER (WITH VINEGAR)

This homemade floor cleaner with vinegar is best used on vinyl, tile and cork.

  • Half fill bucket with warm water
  • Add 4 drops dishwashing liquid (approximately 1 tablespoon)
  • Add 1/2 cup white vinegar, then gently stir.

You can make this solution in a spray bottle for spot cleans around the house, then wipe with your Vileda UltraMax Easy Twist.

I have a very active Labradoodle who allows us live in her three bedroomed timber and tiled floor kennel with her. She has a wonderful back garden with access through her doggy door and loves to bring us lots of presents from the garden. Sometimes I look at the floor in our lounge room and expect to see potatoes growing…..
A Vileda mop would save me so much time and effort, it would cut my cleaning time down drastically and I could then spend that time doing more important things, like drinking wine and eating cheese

my two lovely boys have caught a virus that is making them puke all day. It isn’t fun trying to clean up after them using the old mop and bucket in one arm and carrying your crying snotty baby On the other arm, while your five year old in on the floor screaming from pain. And then cleaning up the mop afterwards is another headache, washing all those chunks off while trying not to vomit because the smell is so disgusting!
This mop will definitely make my life a little easier and a little less stressful during clean ups!

With three kids, 2 cats, 2 budgies and one dog, I find myself vacuuming the floors and then mopping them every day.

I have had the original Vileda Ultramax for over 10 years. Unfortunately hubby has used the mop bucket for a paint bucket and it has died. These buckets are very hard to find in stores now, so I’ve been using a cheap steam mop which just does not get the job done! I have a 3 month old (I’m sure she’ll be crawling soon enough) so Iwill be needing a better solution pretty soon.

I broke my wrist about 6 months ago and so with my old style mop I find that I can’t wring out enough water for my floors to dry quickly. As a result the 7 year old went ice scating in his socks the other day and now sports a bruise on his bum… oops… guilty mum face.

I have 3 kids counting the husband and a large house full of glossy cream tiles and laminate floorboards in the bedrooms to keep clean.

With miles of tiles and laminate too
Mopping our home is really hard to do

The endless mopping’s enough to make even Cindarella pout

I’ve tried different buckets, rags, mops and brooms
Lotions and potions with terrible fumes
But if Kat’s suggested something (and she’s always right on the facts)
Seems my problems will be solved with the Vileda Ultra Max !

I would love to win the mop as I have a muscle disease which means I don’t have much strength in my arms, legs & back.

The Vileda mop sounds like it would be much easier to use.

My mop just died. Rusted, broken, disgusting. I need a new one and I’d like a mop that makes my life easier with the need for less chemicals. I also want the sink from that ad (nice!) I want to mop the smarter way! The mopping up of crumbs and hair looks so amazing – no need to vacuum if in a hurry. How awesome would that be?! 3 active primary school kids, lots of furry animals, and a family who all have hair, this mop looks amazing and would be the most awesome replacement mop for me. Plus if it makes me look that good after a party night and can even encourage the hubby to do the mopping, even better. Loved the ad, it did grab my attention!

For years I have unsuccessfully searched for the perfect mop. They either don’t do the job well, are not easy to use or just plain don’t last! With pets and a baby who is crawling I find it’s a constant struggle to keep my floors in shape and can not wait to try the Vileda Ultramarine Easy Twist!

I would love a Vileda UltraMax Easy Twist mop as my current two mops need drying outside which is difficult now as my two and a half year old likes mopping the dirty concrete with them before they have dried out enough to be put back in the cupboard. As winter is coming, their current drying location (drying cupboard) will soon be occupied by wet washing. I love that the mop doesn’t need a special bucket as my laundry can’t cope with any more buckets. I’m resisting the urge to rant about my newest mop (a thoughtful gift) which frustrates me so much due to its very poor design. Another bonus of the Vileda Ultra Max Easy Twist is that I would easily be able give the bathroom and toilet floors a quick clean without the need for a bucket nearby as they are often forgotten about as the sticky and visibly dirty kitchen floor always wins the priority race. Better go clean that bathroom before the munchkins wake. Opps, too late.

Hi 🙂 I don’t mind housework – honestly, but I REALLY don’t like doing the floors. I don’t know if its because I have to vacuum it first, then mop afterwards? I’m a very time efficient person and I don’t like doing things twice. The mop that I currently have has been with me for about 9 years – yes, 9 years!! Needless to say, it is time to upgrade. As I live in a rural area, my floors are constantly covered in a layer of dust, and then with 2 young kiddies, well…. do I need to say more?! I do love a clean floor, but don’t like doing it.

Can’t wait to try it. I’ll smile from ear to ear when my floors sparkle-arkle again! signed “Sadie”… &:-)

With 3 kids and husband and myself having MS & Leukemia I’m always looking for easier and cheaper ways to keep our house clean. Our white shiny tiles are a pain as show marks easily, plus I find cleaning with other methods are a major hazard for me. I’ve tried steam mops, big mops etc but nothing leaves it clean, just streaks and sticky some times. I loved to give this mopa go and also your homemade ingredients

Hi Katrina and everybody,

Firstly, wanted to thank you Katrina for all your wonderful knowledge you give us all! Such an inspiration! I’ve been following you for afew years now and I’m still learning each week!
So a little about me, I was a housewife (when I first starting following your blog) but am now a divorceè… and now a single mother of two young children (7 and 9yr olds). I got made redundant from my job after I separated and decided I had the chance to make some sort of career whilst my kids were at a good age, so I decided I’d go to uni and start a Bachelor of Nursing! How crazy am I?! Now a mature age student, juggling kids, study and trying to find an income to support us. Just before Christmas, I finally found a home we could afford and get away from paying a rental (such a waste of money). So now I have my own house to keep clean again! It’s a great feeling but I have found it hard to set us up again with such large costs having to set up a home.
So… in saying this… I think it’s fair to say that cleaning supplies have been last on my list of must haves in my house set up. I actually haven’t owned a mop since the divource (yes in three years!) but atleast I know I can use vinegar and some dish washing liquid to save on money and environment!! So winning his mop would really help me out!
Again, thanks for all your handy hints and tips Katrina! Much appreciated!
Cheers
Libby

This Vileda Ultra Max Easy Twist Mop is the answer to my prayers! I’ve tried all sorts of mops in my 20 years of being a mum from the sponge squeeze types that just moved the dirt to the more recent hand wringing mops and they’ve all killed my back and not done a thorough job. I need a mop that works and is easy to use as we have 4 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats to clean after and time is too precious to spend a whole day mopping and then recovering from bad back aches. This would be a life changer for us! Also really keen to try out your recipe for cleaning wooden floors! I had no idea about the harm of vinegar on my floors – makes a lot of sense! 🙂

Hi Kat, you have given me the kick in the bum I needed to finally get on top of my messy house. As a mum of 5, who works full time, and hubby is away with the defence force, any time I can save around the house is a god send. I have heard you rave about your Vileda mop, and was planning on buying one, but as you said, cleaning products do take up a lot of space in the budget, so I have started making up all your recommendations. So yes would love to win a Vileda Mop to see how much cleaner and easier it would be to use at my place.

Thanks for the floor cleaning recipes Kat, with 4 teenagers our budget gets tight and any way to save some money is great. It would be great to win a new mop as like yourself I have been trying everything and not found the right system to do the floors yet. It feels like you spend a fortune in the pursuit of the right equipment which is going to work and save time and money.

I am nearing 80 years of age and have lived alone for the past six years, with my two poodles, Lily and Graycie. My house has wooden floors throughout. Over the years I have tried a number of mops and none have been easy-going for me. My back gives out if I’m not careful. My latest purchase was a spinning mop but it has its limitations. Lily and Graycie are well-trained but every now and then feel a bit off-colour for one reason or another and a little accident occurs. Any wet foot marks get prompt attention too
Kat has put me on the right path in so many ways that has made my life easier. I am sure if she recommends the Vileda mop then I would love to try it. I had not heard of them.

I can understand why you fell in love with a mop. That’s not strange at all. Especially knowing how much easier it can make your life and how much time it can save you. I try and do my floors daily but have to be truthful and admit that because of the effort it takes to use the mop i have, i can easily tell myself it can wait until tomorrow! Not the best thing to do especially with having a dog around who is always licking things off the floor in the kitchen while i am cooking or preparing food. Life is short and we shouldnt have to spend too much if our precious spare time struggling with a bucket and mop which doesn’t squeeze the water out properly and not being able to walk through the house for 20 minutes while the floors dry. The Vileda ultramax easy mop would allow me to do my floors in a flash every night and keep my floorboards beautifully clean. P.S. My favourite whitegood is my washing machine!!! My friends think i am crazy when i talk about it like that but anything that makes your life easier is your friend. I still have nightmares of having to cart my laundry to the laundromat without a car. Uughh! So i totally get your love for the mop.

My middle daughter (nearly 15) does my floors for me every week – 10 days. It’s a deal we made when she decided to keep pet bearded dragons. Every week or so, we need to buy a bucket ($22) of crickets for them to eat, so I buy the crickets, so she does my floors. It’s a win-win, especially when we have two dogs living in the house! Trouble is, the mop I have doesn’t wring out too well, and leaves lots of water on the surface of the wooden kitchen and hall, and the tiled bathroom. We usually waddle around the floor with old towels afterwards to dry it out a bit, or the dogs go skidding around and leave fresh paw prints straight away! Having a new mop that wrings properly would be fantastic! With 3 teens, I am always scraping for money, so hope I win!!

Dear Kat, I moped my floors yesterday and it reminded me why they don’t get done very often. I am quite tall and stooping over while moping the floors hurts my back (I woke up with a tricky back today) but I am enjoying the fact that they are done and not needing to be done again for awhile. I also think that when I was young and expected to do chores it wasn’t handled properly by my step father so that now I have quite a mental block when it comes down to getting on with the job. I would love a new mop but it seems to me there are people out there with more need than I. Thankyou for all your encouragement

I don’t need the Vileda mop! – but please keep reading as I’m entering anyway.

Over the past two years i discovered that when my house was clean and tidy, it seemed to change the way my mind was working. Now when I need to start work on a project or assignment, I throw on some music and do a good tidy and clean around the house first to get my brain in order.
Recently a friend, who has suffered from anxiety and depression for years, decided to take a leaf from my book, and now works on his home to work on his mind.
He’s doing really well, but doesn’t actually own a mop, and can’t afford a new one.
And so I am entering as a gift to him, to help further him on his inward journey.
Thanks!

I am always rummaging in the cleaning products at the stores, picking up new gadgets and equipment. I would love the Vileda mop to add to my collection!

I am a mum of 4 girls under the age of 7 and keeping our floors looking clean is one of my most difficult tasks. By the time the kids are all in bed asleep, and I’ve completed my daily tasks to keep the house in order and to be preparedness organised hen next da the thought of mopping makes my tired legs walk me straight to bed. I’d love to have a mop like this one which makes cleaning simple and something that can be maintained throughout the day with the convenience and simplicity to use this mairaculous mop. It would be a great addition to the tool so need to keep the house clean and tidy and to assist me in making myself a more ‘organised housewife’. 😉

Footprints all over the floorboards seriously do my head in, and these mops used dry, do a BRILLIANT job at removing them. They buff right off in no time, and that makes me happy.

The wringing mechanism on a ‘swiffer’ mop – GENIUS! I’m not lying or exaggerating in saying that I’ve been waiting for YEARS for someone to invent something like this! My vinyl wood strip floors are lovely but with two young children, keeping the floors squeaky clean requires very hot mopping water. Consequently my hands take a flogging every time I mop and have to wring out by hand. The mop of the future is finally here. Oooh, I would LOVE to win one of these!

I’m a new mum with a baby who’s learnt to crawl and loves to discover and explore the house – along with everything that is on the floor. Everything goes into the mouth because, well, teething. He even gives the floor a lick from time to time. This along with his secret spit-ups, food fiesta (read food throwing parties) and copious amount of drool (again teething) means having the Vileda Easy twist Mop will help ever so much! And it means more time for playing and baby’s exploration expeditions around the house.

Most of my “spare” time at the moment is spent volunteering life saving and I do not get much time to clean, so it would be a godsend to win one of these, and I would know my floors would be clean!

I need a Vileda Ultra Max Easy Twist Mop as I have a super spirited 4yr old boy and 9 week old twin boys! I need something quick and easy to use that gets into all those crazy spots under furniture! I also need to replace what my husband calls ‘sponge on a stick’ as it’s hard work to push around the floors and I need to be speedy with these boys around!

Hubby meant well when he designed our home with big white shiny tiles – they are a nightmare and take forever to clean! This looks nice and easy so I can get the job done faster 🙂

I have always used and loved the supermocio Vileda mop, but I am excited to try this new design. I am building a house and think the Easy twist mop would be amazing on my new high gloss tiles. Anything to help make cleaning effortless and easy. Love to test it out!!

I have always loved the vileda range and this new mop looks like a must have! I have tiles throughout my downstairs and with busy family life, it always needs wiping over. Would love to give this mop a go.

I would love a good mop! I have recently purchased 2 and neither of them are any good. I used to have a cleaner who did my floors each week but my family is back to one wage and we couldn’t afford it. I have spent $60 in the past month on two mops and one malts and the other leaves streaks everywhere. Cleaning up after 2 boys and working full time, I could really do with a hand (and a quick easy way of trying to keep my home hygienic) thanks Kat

I have two little toddlers running round so having a mop that wont leave the floors soaked would definitely be alot less stressful! We are planning on have another baby soon so id love to try this mop and hopefully find a way to have clean floors with less effort and stress.

I have laminate all through the house – haven’t found a mop that can do the job. Most allow too much water to settle which distroys the laminate. Would be nice to find a product suitable.

l use an old metal mop bucket passed down from my Mum, it’s strong and durable but as old as the hills.

I have a 2yo & a 4yo who always manage to spill half their meals on the floor and a big Labrador who constantly treks in mud and mess and don’t forget a husband who doesn’t seem to know how to wipe his feet. My current mop leaves the floorboards all streaky and I end up wiping spots with cloths instead. A new mop would make a world of difference in my life!

I need a mop to fall in love with as I always groan at the thought of mopping – this Vileda Easy Twist mop sounds very lovable. It’s got “easy” in its name – what’s not to love!? With my second child due in two months, a three year old boy to constantly clean up after and caring for my hubby who has just had his hip replaced at the crazy age of 36, your easy-to-use mop would be a godsend right now! xx

A mop that makes my life easier is welcome in my home. We are a busy family of 7 who live in red dirt country!! I’m definitely not in love with my current mop, but do believe I have room in my heart for this Vileda lovely.

I would LOVE one of these mops as our steam mop has just died (second one in three years) and with three messy and dirty boys running/crawling around our white high gloss tiles (which we clearly picked out prior to having kids!!) I need a mop that works ASAP!!

What busy Mum of 3 young kids doesn’t need an amazing mop like this to make her life so much easier and give her more time for enjoying life. That busy Mum would be me and I definitely need one of these!

I’d love to try one of these out, having just moved and renovated our old farm house, not to mention two small children and a farmer husband keeping me busy, anything to make keeping the house cleaner would. R much appreciated! And I could retire the steam mop that I thought would be the answer to all my prayers!
I wonder would it be good to use on the original 1880’s weatherboards that our bedroom is lined with?? They’ve been well neglected and are in desperate need of a good clean!

I have a toddler and a preschooler AND I’m about to start my own Family Day Care. I’m going to be mopping ALL. THE. TIME. If this mop helps me to not mind cleaning the floors then it’s the one I need! Plus using it with the sink for quick spills sounds awesome!

Oh my gosh! I NEED this mop! Dusty footprints are constantly on our wooden floors from our graveled front drive. Along with muddy paw prints from our fur baby after he has been in the backyard, makes it a chore to keep the floors clean. This Vileda mop is the answer I am looking for with it’s ease of use, it is bound to make cleaning the floors a chore no more.

Having one babe who is crawling and also loves to drop food all over the floor and the older babe who unfortunately has inherited his mums clumsy gene (& a clumsy mama) I am constantly cleaning the floors. Anything to make this chore easier would be welcomed. Especially being able to mop without a bucket!!!

I need this mop! Cleaning up after my partner and my parakeet is no easy task, not to mention all the dirt and dust that just “appears” on every surface of my house. (I know right, how rude). Have tried the ‘sponge’ heads and I’m with you on this one; the dust just gets smeared around. Please save me the heartache of having a forever grubby floor, and if that doesn’t sway you – please save my partner from a sweaty, frustrated, dirt-loathing me.

Mopping is not my favourite thing to do and this mop makes mopping sound a little more exciting.

I feel that when i have mopped my floors it is the icing on my cake, the star on my christmas tree, and my cherry on the top, the bees knees lol lol it signifies ive finished and a job well done……my first memory of this self achievement stems back to my mum who would only rest once the floors were done at the end of her cleaning chores. So cleaning with a more efficient product to acheive this gives me that sence of pride and achievement in that area.
Thankyou … Robyn

I originally bought ‘The Monster’ steam cleaner about 7 years ago when I lived in Wandin North, Vic because my large family room was all tiles as were the 2 bathrooms. ‘Monster’ is a really good name for it and it pretty much lives in the cupboard gathering dust. I have now returned home to NZ (after 38yrs living in Aus); after reading your article I’m very interested in this new Ultra Max Easy Twist mop. Unfortunately there only seems to be the very basic Vileda products at Bunnings NZ. I tried purchasing online from Aus but they only ship to Australia. I shall have to hound Bunnings to bring in more Vileda products.
Wish me luck!
