Sharing a recipe for any easy DIY Floor Cleaner that works amazingly well, with hardly any effort at all.

How To Make DIY Floor Cleaner
I made a 3 gallon solution of this floor cleaner, however, you can adjust the amounts based on how much you are making.
Start by adding 1/2 Tablespoon Sal Suds to a small bowl. (This equates to 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water you are planning to use. Truly. You don’t need much.)
This next step is completely optional, however, I love adding essential oils to my cleaning products for a little extra cleaning power. Sal Suds already has Fir and Spruce Essential oils in it, so I enhanced it with few drops of Pine and Lemon (10 drops of each). Give this a little stir. You will notice the consistency of the Sal Suds change as you stir.
You can now fill your cleaning bucket with warm water. I added about 2 gallons of water and then poured the Sal Suds/essential oil mixture in as I added the last gallon. Make sure to rinse the bowl as you fill in order to get all the cleaning solution in the bucket.
