Hardwood Floor and Hairspray

tuesday_2008June 11, 2011

I will be renovating my bath later this summer and plan to install site finished red oak HW flooring, unstained, with semi-gloss oil base poly - 3 to 4 coats (like the rest of my house).

I currently have vinyl and have always had a problem with hairspray. It seems I can NEVER get it mopped entirely up. How will hairspray affect my wood floors? Meaning will it damage the finish, what is the best cleaner, etc? I will clean regularly - just looking for the best way to prevent build-up/damage.

I currently mop the rest of my floors with vinegar or Bona cleaner and a damp microfleece pad. I am not sure that will take care of the hairspray. I am not afraid of water on well poly'd wood floors (except of course major water disasters).

You sorta answered your own question. If its hard to clean the hairspray on the vinyl floor it will be MORE difficult to clean on the hardwood without hurting your poly finish.
