Whereas the Swiffer Wet Spray Starter Kit can clean any surface, it’s a highly efficient cleaner for tile floor.
And I could test by myself that it was particularly efficient and practical for this kind of floor. (This works also for my tiny bathroom).
Also, working with disposal pads, this mop is a good fit for small surfaces: in a big house, you’ll spend your time paying and changing the pads.
Regarding the kit, it contains :
So… you don’t really need more than that (and you can throw your bucket and your old mop in the trash).
However, with only 2 disposal pads, you will not go far. After 2 uses, you’ll need to buy additional mopping pads.
To refill this started kit, you can buy :
You also have the option to buy reusable mop pads :
Swiffer sells also an alternative WetJet Starter Kit, but with 5 pads & batteries :
As a final word, this cleaning solution is a great option for small surfaces such as kitchen or bathroom, fitted with a tiled floor.
Coming with a complete kit, you’ll have everything you need to clean your tile floor without any other additional options.
If you’re interested in this product, here is the official Swiffer quick start guide video from Swiffer’s official website.
From tables and chairs to cabinet and hardwood floor, Murphy Oil Soap Wood Cleaner is a cult favorite for this kind of floor.
Contrary to what the name suggests, there is no oil in this product.
So… why this choice?
In fact, the Colgate-Palmolive company uses pine oil as raw material. But once the basic ingredients are transformed into soap, it loses all traces of the oil.
Also, I don’t recommend you to use the product on wood surfaces that may be waxed, unfinished, or unsealed.
The reason is simple: this kind of surface is water sensitive.
If you apply the product on this kind of floor, you may experience discoloration.
You don’t know the state of your floor?
Not a problem.
You can conduct a test: apply the product on a small area of your floor. If you notice discoloration, this means that your floor either needs refinishing or should be waxed.

In my home, the floors are challenging surfaces to properly care for (especially because I have kids, pets, and high traffic).
And the spills, grime, and everyday dirt buildup mean that they need frequent cleaning.
To be honest:
They need daily cleaning.
And there is more.
Compared to other surfaces (such as walls), my floors must last a long time thanks to good care.
This is specifically the case for my bedrooms where I installed the first hardwood floor (and changed then for the laminate floor).
And as a mother, keeping this part of my house interior clean also helps with avoiding the spread of germs and diseases.
At last and caring about my children’s health, I will always choose an eco-friendly product over a standard one.
