Our floors are 90 years old this year (along with the house). It's heart pine from the trees that stood on this lot when the land was cleared. I love that and want to treat these floors well!<br><br>
I usually damp mop them with water and a splash of vinegar. I have just discovered the <a href="http://www.methodhome.com/products/detail.php?prodName=wood_floor" target="_blank">Method Wood for Good Floor Care</a> stuff. I love it! I love the way it smells, how easy it is to use, and how great my floors look.<br><br>
So - anyone else love it?<br><br>
Anyone have reasons I SHOULDN'T be using this?

I use it but I have modern sealed hardwood floors. I don't know enough about it to know if it's safe for antique wood floors, sorry. (I'm jealous of your floors though!)

I don't know. I love the smell of the almond wood spray, and it works better than just a damp cloth, but I worry it has silicones or other plastics in it, which are not good for wood long-term. It *says* there are no ingredients to leave build-up, but if it is plastic-free, then why not come out and say so? I'll be watching this thread because I'd love to know...

I think it works because of the oils in it: <a href="http://www.methodhome.com/whatfor/environment.php" target="_blank">http://www.methodhome.com/whatfor/environment.php</a><br><br>
I think our new house has a lot of hardwood floors (renting it basically sight unseen) and I'm going to try this stuff! We're using a popular mainstream cleaner and I don't care for it.
