So I was reading this recent article about household products that you could make/use at home. For hardwood floors, it said to use black tea bags in boiling or super hot water.
Tea is acidic, so it made sense to me that that was likely the part that helped to actually clean the floors.
I had just made tea, so I decided to use the leftover tea bags...run very hot water in a bucket and threw the tea bags in to soak.
We all know that tea does have color....which seemd to make sense that the color should compliment the hardwood floors.
So with bucket dipped in the tea/water solution, I began trying it out.
After all the hardwood was cleaned and had dried, I was absolutely amazed at how the floors had a nice sheen to them! It also makes for a nice scent throughout the house.
I was so pleased that I know I will be doing this again and again.
This is the actual article where I saw the tips. There are other suggestions that seemed to be resonable solutions as well so you might check it out.

Sounds like an interesting idea, luvtoflip! Hope some others try it and report back with their results!
Oh, wow, that sounds great. Thank you for the info. Would that work on laminate flooring, do you know? I will check out the article right now.
