A savvy mum has revealed the ‘secret’ to her incredibly shiny living rooms tiles – a feat she accomplished without the use of chemicals.
Taking to Facebook, Haley Holmes, from Sydney, shared a snap of her pristine, streak-free flooring, captioning a post: ‘Those freshly cleaned floor feels’.
‘Now, no one walk on my floors!’ she added.
Within minutes of sharing, hundreds flooded the thread, not only to congratulate the mum, but also to ask exactly how she had achieved such a brilliant result.

Haley said there wasn’t really any trick to cleaning her floors and that she had achieved stunning results simply by using a cheap steam cleaner by Vax.
‘I just use a steam mop and nothing else, she said.
‘Trick is to use half to three-quarters steam and press the trigger in bursts so as not to soak the floor.’
Currently, Australian retailer Target is offering a 2-in-1 Vax Steam Glider, for $99.
The battery-powered device offers 15 cleaning time and comes with a promise it will break down grease and grime.
The mum said the trick to cleaning the floors was to fill the steamer half to three-quarters and to press the trigger in bursts so as not to soak the floor
Others with similar flooring, also chimed to share the ‘hacks’ they had used to create brilliantly shiny floors.
‘I have a client with these tiles,’ one person said adding: I use a microfibre mop head, hot water and vinegar.
‘Make sure the mop head is wrung so its not wet. They come up just like this.’
Mothers have also revealed how using a $4.80 solution which is available from Bunnings restored their flooring to pristine condition
The Diggers Surface Cleaner is making waves in cleaning groups on Facebook
It’s not the first time mums around Australia revealed their best tips restoring dirty tiles to pristine condition.
One cleaning solution which recently earned praise from hundreds is a $4.80 surface cleaner, available from Bunnings Warehouse.
Diggers Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner is a bottle of lavender-scented methylated spirits designed to disinfect and deodorise kitchens, bathrooms, glass and floors.
‘Had my first rental inspection today and boy was I nervous… I think I aced it! Definitely would recommend getting Diggers Surface Cleaner if anyone hasn’t, it’s magic in a bottle,’ one woman wrote alongside snaps of her clean home.
The results speak for themselves, with hundreds of women taking to Facebook group, Mums Who Clean, to show off their impossibly clean homes after using the budget-friendly ‘metho without the smell’ (shower pictured before and after)
‘The spray one is brilliant for glass, mirrors, bathrooms, toilets and benches,’ another added.
Others suggested cleaning filthy floors by adding the product to a mop bucket with warm water.
‘It works well on everything in the bathroom and it’s great for a streak-free shiny floor,’ one woman said, adding that it also worked to clean and disinfect her metal jewellery.
One of the most impressive results came from a mother who used the solution on her floor when her favourite Crosswave Solution ran out.
‘Lavender metho plus boiling hot water – no streaks, completely dry in minutes and smells like heaven,’ she wrote alongside a photo of her clean floor.
