Murphy's Oil Soap has always brought me really good luck at cleaning wood floors. I swear by the stuff.

The best way of cleaning wood floors is by mopping with white vinegar and warm water. You can also use a soft microfiber dusting pad, hose attachment or a spray bottle to mop your floor. Avoid using Murphy's Oil Soap on your floors or Orange Glo as they react with your wood floor.

Murphys Oil Soap is specifically MADE for wood floors. LOL... What kind of reaction would you get from a product specifically made for a wood floor? I would think an acidic product like vinegar would have more of a reaction to the wood.

You are correct in your assumption neanderthal. This is the problem with many answers here at ask. People will post ANYTHING to look as if they are 100% correct. And sadly you've seen what one of the biggest offenders here can state as a helpful fact. I'm glad you had the common sense to see through his nonsense. If there is one thing I've learned while here at ask it's this, ALWAY treat any answers you receive as being suspect on their accuracy. Remember, many of these people use wikipedia as a source of information, and we know how even that can be changed and edited. Facts are facts, the rest is just conjecture.

People, you need to know that most hardwood flooring (especially oil-finished hardwoods) do NOT recommend Murphy's Oil. This is because it is associated with drying with long-term use. However, there are other types of wood floors that would do well with Murphy's Oil.

Most hard wood floors are suppose to be protected with polyurethane Vincent. That would make Murphys Oil Soap perfectly acceptable. Oil finished or not... it is suppose to be protected with polyurethane for living conditions... otherwise the wood will also not last.

Neanderthal, as you see many will argue a point just to retain their percieved dominance of opinion. You are again correct. ALL quality floors except gymnasiums and bowling alleys still use oil as a protectant And even they now are few and far between.
