If you have a need for heavy duty mop solution, save yourself time and money by using this simple recipe with items you most likely have on hand. Easy peasy. It smells great too. (Not recommended for waxed floors)

Heavy Duty Mop Solution

1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon liquid dish soap
1/4 cup baking soda
2 gallons tap water, very warm


  • Place all the ingredients into a bucket and mix well until sudsy. You really want to make sure you dissolve the baking soda in the water so it doesn’t leave a cakey film on your floor. Mop the area with the solution. Enjoy your fresh smelling, clean floor!

If you are in need of a good mop and bucket, this is the one that I use and I love it! It allows you to wring it out without touching the dirty water and it’s so easy to get to all the hard to reach places. The pad is also machine washable.

  1. I have tried pure crystals before they smell so good you can also put them in a burner and then your whole house smells good

  2. Hi, will this work for linoleum floor? If so, do I need to wipe w/ sponge in water to clear this solution from the floor? Or not? Is this pet friendly?

    • Hi there. Yes, it’s great for linoleum. I don’t personally go over it with water, but you could. It’s a personal preference thing. I have been using this solution for years with kids and pets and it’s been fine.

  3. can person put essisental oil or pine sol smell in this ???
