How to Clean Dog Drool Stains From Waxed Hardwood Floors

If you have a dog drool stain on your waxed hardwood floors, you can break it up and rinse it away by harnessing the cleaning power of vinegar. For best results, clean up the dog drool stain as soon as possible after it comes into contact with the waxed hardwood floor.

Waxed hardwood floors need to be cleaned a certain way.

Step 1

Mix 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar in a bucket with a gallon of warm water.

Step 2

Dip a clean rag in the mixture, then wring out all the excess moisture.

Step 3

Set the rag on top of the dog drool stain, and leave it for 10 seconds.

Step 4

Rub the stain away using small, circular motions. Rinse the rag in the mixture as necessary, but wring out the excess moisture each time to avoid oversaturation of the wood.

Step 5

Buff the area dry using a soft cloth.
