There's something truly beautiful about a whitewashed wooden floor, especially an older floor that cannot be restored or sanded any more. There is a misconception that whitewashed floors are difficult to maintain, but when topped off with two coats of polyurethane varnish, whitewashed floors are just as easy to keep clean as any other type of finished floor.
If the floor wasn't previously painted or varnished but rather sealed or oiled, use fine steel wool and mineral turpentine to go over the surface. If it's been previously varnished or painted you need to remove this completely: start with 80-grit sandpaper, move up to 120-grit sandpaper and finish off with 220-grit sandpaper.
