Print off the cleaning instructions from your flooring manufacturer (should have come in the flooring boxes - did the installer leave a set with you ?)

Safest - a laminate flooring cleaner like by Mannington, Pergo, 401, etc. For tougher stains a squirt of dish washing liquid detergent (Dawn is best and safest in my book) and 1 part white kitchen vinegar (don't use brown vinegar - can stain) in 3 parts fairly warm but not hot water - and use dampened rag rather than mop or sponge to scrub with, to avoid saturating the surface and getting water into joints or pinholes in the finish. Use broad sweeping circular motions, not back and forth or concentrated in a small spot, to avoid noticeable spot dulling of the finish. If it dulls some may need to go over with a laminate floor wax in VERY small quantity on a cloth after it is dried - NOT furniture polish like Pledge - that can lift the clear protective finish on some laminates.
