Keep it Simple
Trying to figure out how to clean each type of floor in your home can get pretty frustrating -- and buying different cleaners for each room can get pricey. But things don't have to be so complicated. On polyurethaned hardwoods, all you need are a few drops of dishwashing liquid on a damp sponge mop. On (lightly soiled) ceramic-tile and vinyl floors, just water will do the trick, and good old dishwashing liquid can also come in handy.
