Thank you so much for this cleaning recipe! I also do not want to expose my dog to harsh chemicals.For those of you who are concerned about cleaning floors with cleaners potentially harmful to your pet, I did some research and came up with a cleaning recipe that worked really, really well for me. I always worry about commercial cleaners because both of my dogs have long hair between their paw pads that they like to lick and groom with their teeth. I hate the thought of them ingesting something I can't even pronounce.
*2 tbsp liquid soap (I used body wash, in part because I'm out of dish soap but also because I liked the scent) - this is the part that does the actual cleaning
*1/2 cup rubbing alcohol (disinfects)
*1/2 cup vinegar (neutralizes pet odors)
*2 tbsp olive oil (FOR WOOD FLOORS - keeps the alcohol from drying out the wood. If you have tile/linoleum, you can just leave this out)
3-4 quarts water
I used this on tile floor in the bathroom (with the oil in it, since I was planning to wash the wood floors, too) and it did beautifully - dried streak-free and this is dark blue tile that NEVER dries streak-free. I also used it on the wood floors, but for some reason it seemed soapier than when I cleaned the tile, so I followed up with a clean water rinse.
