i have a house i am renting and would like to know if there is a easier way to clean up old hardwood floors that are dark and slightly stained without sanding and refinishing. will a scotchbrite pad and some hand scrubbing take off the wax and grime? i would refinish the floors myself but the landlord is not willing to reimburse me for my cost. we have a baby on the way and i would not like the baby to crawl on dirty nasty floors. please let me know if you have any tricks of the trade to help me out.
