I have a cork floor in the kitchen. Products for wood floor leave a residue on the top of it. I am afraid to use something harsh enough for tile. What would you use? Something more on the natural side would be preferred.

I don't have any cork floors but do have laminate and travertine. I only use Steam on my hard floors and am thrilled with the results. A steamer leaves no residue and is very effective in removing dirt, dust, hair and grime. If you have apprehensions about spending around$100 on something you might not like, you can buy one from qvc or hsn and get a no questions asked 30 day money back guarantee. If for some reason you buy one and don't like it or want a different product you can return it (within30 days) for a full refund. All the major department stores now have floor steamers. I recommend the Hoover floormate. I own the h2o mop but like my friends' Hoover better.
I think you would be really pleased with the results you get using the power of steam. There's absolutely no need for chemical, no need for rinsing, stripping waxy buildup or dealing with sticky floors.
