I've tried Bona, which is supposed to be THE product, and it leaves streaks.

Mix 1/2 cup baking soda in a bucket of warm water -- mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor.

For scuff marks, use baking soda on a clean damp sponge, then rinse.

You can also use vinegar mixed with water. Baking soda and vinegar are both natural products that are not harmful to the environment, furniture, or ourselves.
