Who knew tea can be used to clean hardwood floors? Apparently, the tannic acid in strongly brewed black tea will not only clean your hardwood floors, but give them a nice shine as well. You’ll need to add 5 black tea bags into 2 quarts of boiling water and let steep for at least 15 minutes. Pour the tea into a mop bucket. Place your mop into the bucket of tea, wring out thoroughly, and proceed to mop using the brewed tea as your mop water. Allow floor to dry. No need to rinse!

Caution: Excess water can easily leak into the grooves of the hardwood floor, so do not use a fully soaked mop. Wring out as much of the excess tea as you can.
