I ran out of my citrus vinegar; oranges are crazy expensive right now so we're eating what's in season. Because of this, I have no orange peels to make the citrusey vinegar I use to clean my floors.
I wanted something like the citrus vinegar. It needed to be a no rinse solution that I could use between my weekly (or bi-weekly, depending on how lazy I am) scrubbing of my floor.
I found a recipe for Swiffer Wet Jet spray and tweeked it to fit my needs.
1 gallon hot water
1 c white vinegar
1/4 c liquid castille soap (I used peppermint because that's what I have)
Mix together. It will be a white, milky color.
I swabbed it on to the floor and wiped it up. The floors were very, very clean and I didn't have to rinse it!
This worked much better than other no-rinse solutions I have bought at the store. We are very humid in Kansas and the floors tend to get sticky if there is the slightest residue left on the floor. I am also happy about the vinegar in the solution because of the ant situation. See my post in three days about THAT!
If I do it again:
I may try adding a few drops of peppermint oil. I liked how the castille soap's scent helped to cover up the smell of the vinegar. . . but it wasn't quite enough.
