  • Mop
  • Microfiber flat mop replacement
  • Murphy oil
  • Warm water


Step 1

Grab whatever mop you would like to use, but for this video, Andrea Jean Cleaning will be using Libman mop, you might also purchase 2 extra flat mop head replacements as it is highly recommended to change the cloth as you go from room to room. After using, give the microfiber mop head a good wash so that you can still re-use them for the next time you decided to clean your floors. Get the container spray on your mop or just get an ordinary spray, then fill it with a little bit of water, and add about a teaspoon of Murphy oil.

Step 2

Use this solution mixture to spray on your floor before you start mopping. Make sure to not overfill your spray container as this is a common problem for some, the solution is not as effective as it should be because it either has too much water or too much solution. A nice airy spray would be most recommended. As you mop, make sure to cover every nook and crannies.
