DIY Pergo/Laminate Floor Cleaner

Print Friendly

So when we moved into our new house, we had tons of laminate flooring (which I had never had before). I purchased all kinds of different cleaners, but found NOTHING that got the floor clean and did not leave big streaks. I then googled cleaners and came up with this one after mixing together a couple of different recipes. You can make yourself for VERY cheap, it doesn’t leave streaks, and it gets the floor super clean! I have loved it. So, here you go . . . try it out if you want!


Servings Size

  • cup

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 3 drops liquid dishwashing soap
  • 5 -10 drops essential oils (optional- I sometimes just use the oil that I buy at Bath and Body Works) 


Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle and mix well. I just spray it on the floor and either scrub it with a towel, sponge, or mop.The rubbing alcohol helps speed up the drying process. (Yields about 1 cup.)

    I had the same problem. I now use 1/3 alcohol, 1/3 vinegar, and 1/3 water. You have to do it in small square-like areas, then dry with a paper towel immediately. If you let it dry on its own, within a year or two, your floor will dull and it will look terrible. I have friends who used vinegar and water and it ruined their floor after a few months. You just have to be careful, dont let it air dry on its own. Personally, I would not use the oil.

      That’s weird! I use just straight vinegar to clean almost everything in my house (including my wood table) and I have never noticed anything … I’ll have to watch out for that just in case!
