What is the best way to clean the floor

Sometimes, the floor remains sticky even after washing. Snow-white socks turn gray, and dirty stains appear on the parquet.

Expensive products do not help and you have to wash the floor again. Experts from the Clean My Space portal have shared effective life hacks that will help you  clean your laminate, wood, and vinyl floors to a shine.

You can clean the floor in the usual way: with a mop, water, and soft nozzles. Sometimes it is advised to spray the cleaning solution on a small area and wipe it off with a cloth in 3-5 minutes. In any case, it is advised to make an S-shaped pattern when mopping and wash towards the door.

You can prepare your own floor cleaning solutions.
