I am sooooo ecstatic! I have gorgeous hardwood floors throughout my house. When we moved in I started using mop 'n glo to make my floors shiny and I would caution everyone to not walk on the floors til it was completely dry. Well, to my dismay, the floors started to lok really dull and had lots of patches where it was worse, like there was stuff caked on the floor. I went to Home Depot and got some hardwood floor cleaner and sprayed it on the floor a dozen times and mopped and mopped and mopped but nothing was getting this gunk off my floors. I even got down on my hands and knees with some Murphy's oil soap and scrubbed but, nothing. This stuff was not coming off. I could not figure out what it was and why my floors looks so dull and grungy. I asked a friend who has hardwood how her floors always look so shiny and my floors are newer. She asked me what I use on My floors and I told her I used mop 'n glo and she immediately said "Never use that!" I didn't know.
I went home and looked it up on google and low and behold lots of others had the same problem with mop 'n glo. This residue that never comes off. I finally found a woman willing to give FREE advice on how she got the residue off her floors. (Most were trying to sell and e-book about it) Here it is folks..... the secret! 1/2 cup of ammonia to 1 gallon of hot water! That's it! Use a rag and scrub the residue off the floors. It will take time and some elbow grease but it works and my floors are shiny again!!! If you have a laminate floor like pergo or something else like it you can follow the woman's advice and put a little of the ammonia water onto the floor and let it sit for 5 minutes before scrubbing but since I have hardwood that does not do well with water just sitting on it I had to squeeze the rag almost dry and scrub with it and then follow it with a dry rag to mop up as much water as possible as I was scrubbing. I noticed that the second pass of the damp rag took the stuff off as the first pass allowed the ammonia to penetrate the residue on the floor. I was so happy to see my beautiful floors again. they no longer look dirty and I feel like I can wash the floors now and they will lOOK like it!!
