How to clean strand bamboo flooring

by Mariah

I am looking for advice on how to clean our strand bamboo flooring in our family room. We live in the country with two dogs that track in plenty of dirt.

After vacuuming and dusting, I have been using Bona and today I tried Murphy's Wood Oil Soap. Both cleaners have gotten the dirt (and paw prints) up just fine, but both leave a cloudy finish on the floor. I've not been satisfied with the results.

The floors are less than a year old. Please advise!
