how to clean kitchen floor?

Answer:

I'll assume this is a vinyl floor. You didn't say what it was. Those clean and wax products aren't very good. I don't know why anyone thinks you can wax and clean at the same time. What really happens is that dirt gets waxed right onto the floor and stays there until the wax wears off or gets stripped off. It never wears off in parts people don't walk on. It just keeps building up. You can clean the floor with any number of products. Ammonia, white vinegar, you can use all-purpose cleaners like Mr Clean, you can use Pine-Sol, Murphy's Oil Soap, etc etc. I like Dr Bronner's Sal Suds. I haven't used one of those wax and clean things for about 35 years, so I don't know if they say what to clean the floor with first. Just remember that with floor cleaning products, less is more, especially with products that produce suds. Too much will leave a residue on the floor. If you want a really clean floor, vacuum it first, use a mop to get off what the vacuum cleaner didn't, let it dry, and then use a wax.
This Site Might Help You. RE: How to clean kitchen floor? I use a clean and wax product and the floor does not get very clean. What can I use that is safe to clean the floor before I add the wax product?
To one gallon of hot water, add 1/2 cup ammonia. That dissolves any grease on the floor, anything sticky on the floor. You can add more ammonia if you want, but I find that if I add too much more, then you will need to rinse with clear water as it will leave a residue. I just washed and waxed mine yesterday. If you want a really good cleaner for painted surfaces like walls, add to one gallon hot water, 1/2 cup ammonia, 1 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup baking soda. If you want your floors to really shine, use Pledge Floor Wax. That is the best on the market. It used to be called, Future. Oh, don't use that Mop and Glow crap. That is what it is....Crap
Use a good floor cleaner if it is not a wood floor. Lysol is good. You may need to clean it on your hands and knees or use a mop several times. If it is waxed, remove the wax and forget about using it again. Wax causes build up and turns yellow.
You didn't mention what your floor is? Tile, Vinyl, wood, etc?? Use a bottle of Wax Remover and scrub clean, rinse good and then use Mop N Glo. Not the cheap imitation, but real Mop N Glo
