OK here's the situation:
Cleaning my hardwood floor...dragged sofa across floor and put scuff
marks on floor. Wood doesn't look damaged or scratched...grain is
Easy way to correct this?
Also...have 2 dogs and live in country...they run outdoors, through a
pond and bring the outdoors inside....I clean the floor with Murphy
oilsoap in water.
Any better ways to clean a floor?

I was always told not to use soap and water on hardwood.
There are many good wood cleaners on the market. On my shelf at the
moment are wood floor cleaners by Ace and Bruce. Others available.
Using key words "wood floor cleaning products" or similar, you
will find many Web sites with good tips about maintaining your
precious hardwood floor.

I've read quite a bit on this (not that it makes me an expect by any means)
and from what I gathered, no one recommends using Murphy's on hardwood

floors aren't finished with wax anymore.
ah, very good. thanks for the info.
it seems to be easier to find what NOT to use than what to use. i
asked the folks at home depot and they looked at me like i'd asked
them a question in sanskrit.
i'd love to know what a good wide area cleaner is for hardwood floors.
