KNOCK ON WOODS
Sweeping or vacuuming your wooden floors regularly can minimize the need for intensive care. However, for stains and marks, lightly spray the area with water or a specialized wood cleaning product, and mop with a micro-fibre pad.
COLD AS MARBLE
Anything acidic, such as vinegar, is a strict no-no for cleaning marble flooring. Since marble tends to discolour quickly, you need a gentle agent to attack stains. Try hydrogen peroxide—dilute 1/2 cup of it with 3 to 4 litres water to combat food spills, ink marks, etc.
