For the Love of Wood: Hardwood Floor Cleaners

I love hardwood floors. So much so that I pay considerably more to live in an apartment that's got 'em. Having always had pets, carpet has never been practical and my knees go weak when I see a stark white chair on a rich hardwood floor. I'm in the process of trying every floor cleaner on earth to find the best hardwood floor product.

My downstairs neighbors use both Method Wood for Good or good ol Pine Sol and haven't noticed a huge difference. I've been trying Murphy's Oil Soap but it always leaves a dull residue. I want my floors to look the way they do when they're wet. They aren't in terrible shape just a little dull and I want them to be shiny and vibrant! Anyone got any good tips, that don't involve refinishing or me on my hands and knees?
