So let’s see how to make a do-it-yourself detergent in a simple, fast and low cost way for different types of flooring: marble, ceramic and wood-parquet.

  • DIY DETERGENT FOR MARBLE OR GRANITE FLOORING

Let’s start with the marble or granite floor: being very delicate, you will need a non-aggressive detergent. Pour about 3 litres of hot water into a bucket and then add 3 tablespoons of baking soda, half a cup of alcohol and flakes of Marseille soap. Mix everything so that the soap flakes melt and then use the detergent with a microfibre cloth.

  • DIY DETERGENT FOR WOODEN FLOORING

Also in this case we are faced with a very delicate type of floor to be treated with care. To clean it and make it shine in a completely natural way, in this case you just need to fill a bucket with three litres of cold water, add a tablespoon of bicarbonate and some flakes of Marseille soap. Mix well in order to melt the flakes and clean the floor using a microfibre cloth .

  • DIY DETERGENT FOR THE CERAMIC FLOOR

Here’s how to clean the ceramic floor: pour 3 litres of almost boiling water into a bucket, add a quarter of a glass of white vinegar, 5 tablespoons of alcohol and some flakes of Marseille soap. Also in this case use a microfibre cloth.
