I've been searching for years for something to clean my wood floors that doesn't leave it looking dull as soon as the cleaner dries. No luck yet. Yesterday, though, I dropped some melted peanut butter onto the floor. As I hurried to clean it up, I noticed everywhere the rag had rubbed the peanut butter was now shiny and nice. I looked up the effects of peanutbutter on hardwood floors just in case, but all google had to tell me was that it is often used to remove sticky residues from floors and does not hurt it. I'm not saying I'm ready to rub peanut butter into all the floors, haha, but it did make me wonder is there some kind of oil based polish that anyone knows of similar to the types of oils you would use on antique furniture? Those oils always give my furniture such a nice glow afterwards, so there's got to be something for my floors as well. All the top Carpet Cleaning langley I buy that are applied with a mop and always show those nice gleaming floors on the commercials look fantastic as soon as its applied...THEN, after about 10 minutes when it all dries, it looks like a dry dull floor again. (Guess they don't show you the drying process on the commercials) Any ideas? Thanks for reading!

I never heard about it. Does it clean the floor??....

Lol how funny, didn't imagine this use for peanut butter! I use apple cider vinegar to clean lots of things around the house though!

It is for the first time I'm hearing about cleaning the floor with peanut butter. I used to clean the floors using normal floor cleaners. At times I hire the service of professional cleaners to clean the floors perfectly.
By the way, can anyone share the experience after cleaning the floor with peanut butter??? Won't the floor be sticky after cleaning it with peanut butter :?:
