Cleaning floors can be tricky. From worries about what chemicals could damage them to ensuring they’re getting the best clean, it’s a lot to think about. A common first aid kit item might be the answer.
You can mop with hydrogen peroxide, and yes, it’ll get your floors clean.
Hydrogen peroxide is a gentle oxygenation bleach which means it’s perfect for cleaning, and while you should always spot test a bit of your floor first, this trick should work on a variety of finishes. Whether you’re in a pinch and out of your usual cleaner or just looking for a more natural alternative, you might want to look in your first aid kit.

Be sure to use a non-abrasive mop when cleaning.
To use hydrogen peroxide on your floors, you should first dilute it a bit. Using one cup of hydrogen peroxide (the cleaning grade) and a gallon of water, create a mopping solution. Soak your mop (which should be cloth or microfiber to prevent the spread of water), and then, be sure to wring it out as much as possible before wiping the floor. This will help prevent water stains and wood-warping.
As you clean, mop in sections and dry with a rag as you go. If an area needs a bit of extra work, add a bit of peroxide to a spray bottle, spray it on the floor, and wipe it away.
