White Wash???

So, I have had my bedroom floors painted white for a couple of months.  And I have to say I haven’t found the greatest way to clean them yet.  Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to clean white painted floors?  I don’t need them perfect as I like a little imperfection but they are looking a little too dingy.
Speaking of my bedroom… I’m so excited because my dear mother in law has been working so hard to make me beautiful silk window treatments and she is bringing them this weekend (all the way from Atlanta, bless her heart!).  I’ve never had real, proper window treatments… so excited!!!  Only a few other little things to finish in my bedroom (order a glass/mirrored bedside table..seen any great ones? and maybe a picture for over my bed).  And then I promise to post some pictures!
To see a pretty great collage of white floor pictures visit Homebug’s set on Flickr!

    Oh, white floors are a nightmare. I painted the floors of my daughters room and they looked great for about five minutes :( I love how they look in magazines but in reality it's so hard to keep nice. If you have any ideas thrown your way can you let me know becuase iv repainted three times this year already!!

    Your room is gorgeous, just found your blog! I have painted floors and the best way to clean them is with warm water and Murphy's oil soap, they come out like brand new and the smell is nice too!
