Hard, nonporous flooring surfaces, especially those in bathrooms and kitchens, can be easily cleaned with a Clorox bleach and water solution. It’s as simple as mixing up bleach and water, mopping it on, rinsing it off and letting everything air dry.
Not for use on porous unsealed tile surfaces, unfinished wood surfaces or marble. Avoid contact with aluminum; if accidental contact occurs, rinse immediately with water.
Start by opening windows to allow good air circulation in the area you’re cleaning. For rooms without windows, you can also use a fan to improve air circulation.
Getting rid of loose dirt before applying the bleach solution will make mopping easier.
Fill a plastic bucket with 1 gallon of cool water, then add 1/3 cup Clorox® Bleach. Wear gloves and clothing that you don’t mind accidentally splashing with bleach solution.
Apply the solution and allow it to contact the surface for 6 minutes. Scrub as needed with a nylon brush if necessary to remove tough stains.
To disinfect with this bleach and water solution, pre-clean the floor by wiping away organic matter before applying the bleach and water solution.
Empty the bucket with the bleach and water solution, rinse it, and fill with clean water. Use this to rinse the floor before letting the area air dry completely.
This solution is safe to use in a home with pets and children — just be sure to keep them out of the area while you are working, until the floor has dried.
