DIY Orange Natural Wood Floor Cleaner


  • 1 gallon warm water
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil
  • 10 drops orange essential oil (or tangerine, that’s my favorite)
  • 5 drops tea tree oil

Step 1: Make the homemade wood floor cleaner

First things first – you have to buy the O-Cedar EasyWring™ Spin Mop & Bucket System. Ok? Now that we have that out of the way…

Making this orange floor cleaner concoction is very easy. Pour your water into the O-Cedar mop bucket and stir in coconut oil until it melts. Add the white vinegar, orange oil, and tea tree oil drops and mix until combined. Now you’re ready to mop!

Step 2: Soak the O’Cedar wood floor mop and spin to wring it out

Douse the mop head into the water and wring it out, as shown below. This mop head is made of microfiber and is triangular in shape, making it super easy to get a good deep clean in those hard-to-reach areas, which means every corner is covered!

Step 3: Mop those wood floors!

Finally, it’s time to mop! Go ahead and clean those floors the natural way with our essential oil wood floor cleaner. The orange oil smells absolutely amazing and we love knowing that our floors are clean and chemical-free every time.

I think the coolest thing about the O’Cedar EasyWring™ Spin Mop & Bucket System is the hands-free wringer. By pressing the foot pedal, the spinning bucket wrings out the mop quickly and conveniently without having to bend down to squeeze it out. Less water on the mop means faster drying floors, and less effort means I can be finished cleaning and get on with my day! See how it works in this short video I made here:
