nice knitting. I must have had a little of that fever today, too as I was supposed to be working hard in the home office but found myself in the house on several occasions doing a much-needed tidy or put away.
Is there a finish on your floors? this oil doesn't make them slippy??


I have been bit with the spring cleaning bug too! I stayed up late last night cleaning the kitchen, and I am itching to do the insides of all my cupboards and drawers. Something about the sun shining through the windows again and revealing all the dirt!!


Karen Sue, there is so little oil in the mixture (10 drops or so in a solution with water, vinegar, and teeny drop of dish soap) that slipping isn't an issue. :) My floors actually are bordering on tacky at the moment, I'm wondering if they were waxed in the past and perhaps now I need to strip them and redo them. I've never had hardwood floors before. Ours never look clean and shiny no matter how recently they've been scrubbed and I've used the same solution on laminate and linoleum before and they have come out wonderfully.


Hi Linds!
I missed these comments somehow! Yes, that extra sunshine at this time of year really highlights the spots where dust has collected in the dark winter months. Everywhere I look it seems that something needs cleaning. It should be warm enough this week that I can tackle the outside of our big living room window which has been bugging me since October! Ha!

I do sometimes link to resources that I and my family personally use and recommend. I participate in Amazon's associates program and if you enter Amazon.ca through my blog and then make a purchase, I will receive a small percentage of the sale. I link to Amazon more for the sake of making it easy for people to find certain book titles, however, if you have a local bookshop that has a good selection please support independent booksellers. I often shop on eBay and online secondhand book shops as we don't have a book shop of any size nearby.
