Previously, she wowed her followers with her chemical-free cleaning hack that will leave floors sparkling and dirt-free.
Mommy uses a mixture of boiling water, dishwashing detergent and white vinegar in her mop bucket.
Also add a few drops of essential oil to make the whole house smell amazing and rubbing alcohol which will make the cleaner dry super fast and remove dirt.
Chantel said the solution is great on tile and laminate but recommended a patch test to see if the mixture is suitable for other types of flooring.
I mixed three cups of hot water, 1/4 cup of white vinegar, and 1 teaspoon of dish soap.
Chantel added two additional ingredients, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol and essential oil.
She said rubbing alcohol helps floors dry faster and keep them streak-free but it is not suitable for all types of floors. It is great for tiles and hybrid wood floors.

“try this!” One woman answered and another said, “I just used this little hack, thank you.”
A third agreed that “dishwashing liquid and vinegar mix well with hot water.”
And someone added: “Wipe also with grains, and not crosswise.”
“Using natural products is always 100 times better than using chemicals, well,” said another.
Others caution against using hot water and vinegar on hardwood and natural wood floors.
“Hot water is not good for wood floors. It expands and contracts making it warp even more,” wrote one viewer.
One agreed, saying, “If those floors are natural wood, you definitely shouldn’t be using vinegar or anything acidic to clean them.”
Natural wood floors should be cleaned with a neutral pH floor cleaner. Otherwise, the floors will become dry and porous.
