ok If someone here has an answer on these floors I will be deeply grateful- NO one seems to know what cleaners are good for fake wood/wood laminate floor in kitchen....

1. murphy's oil soap-no bcs thats for real hardwood...

2. Simple Green -great on tile, streaks and looks terrible on wood laminate

3. Mr Clean/Pine- sol etc., will streak and damage the surface.


I hate these floors...even after swiffer they look smeared...is there any special product to make them look clean? They are such high maintenance....

I miss saturnia tile-

Part of our basement floor is laminate. I use Bruce hardwood floor cleaner (sparingly), a tiny bit of Mrs. Meyer's (cause I love the smell), or a steam mop (plain water). I haven't a problem with streaks.

You can put anything on plastic floors without doing harm. Those fake floors are just recycled soda bottles. Just soapy water even works.

But if you want some shine and quality deep appearance:

I have always recommended Cabinet Magic for cabinets and that includes cabinets that have laminate sides. It's the best product on the market hands down. That is not my opinion or anyone's opinion. That is a fact.

There are Granite magic, Stainless magic, Tile magic, Oven magic etc etc. I don't even know if they work. Never tried them. All the magic series are color coded cans. The Cabinet magic is a blue can. It will make lam floors shine like the Spring sunshine. Not many places sell this product. The big orange and big blue store does sell it as well as professional woodworking stores like Rockler.

All the Magic series cans are spray cans. Sorry I was not clear on that.
