For all your ‘flooring’ surfaces, we’ve got just the solution to take them from stained to sparkling clean.


If a soapy-detergent is your go-to for the vitrified tile flooring in your home, it’s time you rethink your strategy. While soap might clean your floor, it will make the surface look duller. The solution: mix 1/2 cup vinegar with 3 to 4 litres warm water, and mop away.


Though laminate floors don’t stain easily, certain stains require intervention. For starters, wipe spills with a damp cloth. To remove stains right away without stripping the floor’s sheen, mop the floor with a solution made of 4 tbsp rubbing alcohol mixed in 3 to 4 litres warm water.

To clean grout make a paste of baking soda and water, and rub it in. Leave overnight, then scrub with a stiff nylon brush.



Sweeping or vacuuming your wooden floors regularly can minimize the need for intensive care. However, for stains and marks, lightly spray the area with water or a specialized wood cleaning product, and mop with a micro-fibre pad.


Anything acidic, such as vinegar, is a strict no-no for cleaning marble flooring. Since marble tends to discolour quickly, you need a gentle agent to attack stains. Try hydrogen peroxide—dilute 1/2 cup of it with 3 to 4 litres water to combat food spills, ink marks, etc.
