How to Remove Salt Stains from Hardwood Floors

If you live in a part of the country that gets a lot of snow, you are probably constantly cleaning up salt stains from when people enter your home. Even if visitors have the best of intentions, and take their shoes off before entering your home, salt stains are pretty much inevitable. Keeping up with cleaning the salt stains is a huge pain.

One strategy for making cleanup easier is to prepare a solution of 1/2 gallon of water and 1/2 cup of vinegar.  Put the solution into a spray bottle so you'll have it handy for frequent cleanups. When you see a salt stain on your floor, spray it with the solution, and then use a wet sponge to wipe up the mess. Dry off the floor and check to see if the stain is gone. Repeat as needed. 

This is much more manageable than mopping the floor each day. Of course, if you have a lot of traffic in your home, mopping may be a simpler solution. For the occasional tracking in of snow, this spray bottle strategy is much easier.
