Kids, pets, family: all wonderful treasures that make every day worth living. That is unless you have nice wood floors. Then they’re all hell-spawn sent to destroy your floor to the point where it leaves you on top of your roof, crazed, screaming at the top of your lungs, “SEE, THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!!!” So here’s a list of wood floor hacks that will not only keep your floor beautiful over its lifespan, but you clothed and off of your roof.

1. An iron plus a wet cloth and you can fix dents on your floor. It works on wood furniture too! Just don’t leave it on too long.
