One of the houses I clean has all wood floors, walls, and ceilings. Prior
to moving in I cleaned the walls and the ceilings with a mixture of vinegar
and water (about 50-50). I put a little bit of essential orange oil in
there too to lessen the pungency of the vinegar (the odor goes away pretty
The walls and ceilings don't need to be cleaned often (dirt/dust tends not
to settle much on verticle surfaces). On a monthly basis I dust-mop the
wood floors with the same vinegar and water solution. The house always
looks great when I'm done.
Vinegar's cheap, easy to use, nontoxic, and does a great job.
