Re: Pergo - Cleaning

I can second Windex and a Microfiber mop. The Bona kits work for some but not others a friend at work reccomended it and it's horrible on my floors and so is the ZEP laminate cleaner just like vengar and water. Windex is the only thing we use and it works wonders and dries quick.

My mom just had actual pergo put in about 6 months ago, $4K worth of it. She tried the Pergo kit and after listening to her complain and complain and me telling her 10 times to try Windex she finally did and now only uses it too.

I have a lot of floors to clean. Living room dining room without walls, long hall way, home office and spare room with a bird.

I am going to try the office first with the Windex and see how it goes.

I have a dog who is allergic to so many things I hesitate to try the windex but a small area and we will know pretty quickly.

I think any cleaner that leaves a residue is what makes it streaky and shows paw prints. Ammonia based Windex most likely will not leave a residue.

Not sure what other flooring would have been an option.
With the pugs carpeting was a nightmare.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

Or make your own windex. 1/2 cup of ammonia, 2 cups rubbing alcohol, a dash of dish soap, and water to fill a gallon container.

That is my kind of windex.
I think a professional window washer recommended that formula.

I actually like to wash windows. Never any streaks with the original Windex. Yes, another streak issue.
The fancy ones with perfumes and such streak.

Brand new white cloth diapers and original windex on an over cast day.
Love the tip in windows.

Plain old ordinary newsprint (not the ad slicks) make great window cleaning "cloths" in case people don't happen to have brand new white cloth diapers lying around...then again, newspapers seem to be going the same general direction as cloth diapers.

I have about 1600 sq ft of the stuff so I know what you mean about alot. We normally buy the wal-mart store brand glass cleaner since it's half the cost and works just as good. Dollar store versions on the other hand don't have as much ammonia or alcohol one of the two and don't work.
