Also, what does bleach do to wood floors?
Household bleach--the weakest type--treats ink stains, blood, juice spills and similar stains. Oxalic acid tackles black discoloration from age, water damage or rust stains. A two-part bleach kit--the strongest form--is usually reserved as a last resort. Bleaching hardwood floors will lighten stains and age marks.
Likewise, is it OK to use bleach on wood? With the types of bleach used on wood, for the most part, you are safe to use them. When cleaning with the peroxide type of bleach they will oxidize so they are safe to use, but most people do use vinegar to neutralize the wood after bleaching it. This is not toxic whatsoever.
Similarly one may ask, what can I use to disinfect hardwood floors?
Combine 1/2 cup of white vinegar with a gallon of warm water in a bucket and mix well. The acetic acid content of vinegar kills bacteria and disinfects your wood floors. Dip your mop into the vinegar and water solution and squeeze out the excess liquid.
