What You Need:

  • Microfiber mop and extra micro fiber mop heads
  • Vacuum
  • Water
  • Ammonia
  • Twenty Mule Team Borax (Laundry additive aisle)
  • Cloth mop or chamois-type mop
  • Dry rag (optional)

How to:

  1. Firwt remove th loose dust and dir ton the floor. Either vacuum or use a dry mop head or micro fiber mop head to dry dust the floor *This is any important step. Otherwise the dirt turns to muddy/dirty water on the floor
  2. If you are using a micro fiber mop wet the mop heads with warm water and squeeze out most of the water. Use NO cleaning products. The microfiber mop head removes 99.8% of dirt from the floor
  3. Let the floor dry, machine wash the mop heads with detergnt in the washer. DO NOT add bleach or softener. This ruins micro fiber and it becomes nothing more than a rag
  4. Micro Fiber is the recommended way to clean. DO NOT ever us a sponge mop. It acs like a squeegee and pulls the dirty water into the grout tracks.
  5. If you are not using micro fiber:
  6. Combine the following:
  7. 1-gallon warm water
  8. 2 - Tablespoons ammonia
  9. 1 - Tablespoon Twenty Mule Team Borax (in the laundry additive aisle)
  10. Mop the floor with the solution using a cloth or chamois-type mop
  11. If you have a gloss-finish tile you may need to dry it. To do this, put a rag under your foot and wipe over the floor.
  12. Rinse the mop frequently to keep from using dirty water on the floor

Warnings & Cautions:

DO NOT use vinegar. It is acidic and eventually will etch the grout.
