How to quickly clean the floor

Not all floor cleaners can restore a shiny gloss to your floors. Dirt on laminate, parquet, or tile not only spoils the aesthetic appearance of the room but also promotes the growth of bacteria.

There are many tips and folk recipes to help you clean your floor. But one of them you have probably not heard of. This life hack is very popular among the French, according to Sante Plus. It is advised to use toothpaste to clean the floor.

The soft and abrasive structure of toothpaste makes it an effective tool for removing stains and dirt. Moreover, the floor will shine clean after such cleaning.

It is better to use white toothpaste without added coloring. Pour warm water into a bucket and add a little toothpaste. It is recommended to take 2 tablespoons of paste for 1 liter of water. Mix the ingredients thoroughly in a circular motion.

When the solution is ready, dampen a mop cloth with it and wipe the floor. Pay special attention to the most soiled areas.

It is sufficient to clean the floor twice a week. The bleaching antimicrobial properties will help to remove dirt effectively.

But be careful - toothpaste should not be used on some types of floors.

This applies, in particular, to:

  • granite surfaces
  • marble surfaces
  • wooden floors
