I'm all about EASY cleaning and so I really loved this tip that Laura sent in about cleaning hardwood floors. Here's what she wrote:
Use only a damp mop to clean wood floors.
Not only is this (obviously) completely NON-TOXIC, but it's incredibly cheap and easy. Just be sure to use a lightly damp mop - you don't want to soak the hardwood floor. You just need enough moisture to pick up the dirt. A little spray of an essential oil such as lavender or mandarin would just make the floor (and the whole room for that matter) smell really great!
