Slobber marks on hard wood floors

Has anybody used the steam shark to get the dog slobber off their hardwood floors? Does it work?

I have a Floormate floorscrubber by Hoover and that's not working. My Mom said to use vinegar and water, which gets most of it up but not all. (It works on her laminate floors when we go to visit.) The only thing that has worked totally for me is getting on my hands and knees with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser. This kills my back. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Sorry I couldnt resist. I can relate to this post and it just tickled me to read.
No real advise, I not only have slobbery hardwood floors but I also have slobbery windows and sliding glass doors.
Just one more pleasure of owning a boxer !!

I have a Shark floor steamer (the cheaper model), and it works GREAT on my textured laminate and hardwood floors. I used a 20% off coupon at Bed Bath & Beyond and got mine at a good price.

We use Bruce Hardwood Floor Cleaner with just a dry Libman mop and it works great. Just spray it on and wipe it up with the mop.

Now if someone can just figure out a way to remove the scratches on hardwood floors made by enthusiastic boxers running up and down the hall!

Only way I know of to remove scratches on REAL hardwood floors is to strip them, sand them, and use a finish that is made to protect from stuff like that. Scratches is hardwood floors is due to a crummy finish.

If they're laminate floors, check out the guarantee through the manufacturer. I know mine are guaranteed for life against scratches, breaks, dents, cracks, etc. Supposedly I can drop a 2,000 pound bowling ball on my floor and have it be okay. Not sure if that's true never tested it LoL, but I have 2 dogs, foster, and pet sit and have lived here 4 1/2 years and have no scratches on my floors at all and they still look brand new when they're cleaned.

Have you tried Murphy's Oil Soap (mixed with water of course) with a flat head terry cloth mop? Works well for us.

Well my hubby got me a steam cleaner for Christmas. So hopefully it works as well as others says it does. I am definitely not the "domestic diva" type. The less time I spend cleaning leaves me more time to play with my pups!
