|Cleaning Wood Floors With Black TEA
Use black tea for your floors at weblog Apartment Therapy. All you need to do is bring a half gallon of water to a boil on the stove and then steep eight black tea bags in the water for 10-15 minutes. Squeeze out any water from the tea bags and then let it cool to room temperature. Then grab a rag and apply a small amount to your floors. The Tannins in the tea can enhance the warm coloring of the wood and help hide small scratches, and black tea derived from the Camellia Sinensis plant contain polyphenolic compounds that prevent microbial growth. Be sure to sweep or vacuum the floor before you begin to wipe it down, and test it on a small, inconspicuous spot on your floor to make sure it looks how you want it to.
