I’m not going to lie, I really do not like mopping floors.
I think moreso that I just don’t have the time to give my floor a good mop every time it needs it. I like to only do it when Noah is napping, or playing quietly so that I dont’ have worry about him trompling all over my clean floor. But, by the time I remember I need to mop, get the floor swept, and get the bucket drawn and am on my way–he comes in and I have to try to keep him out. Or, I just get busy and forget that I haven’t mopped in
weeks days and it is 8:00pm and I have no desire to mop right before bed.
But, I do love a clean floor. The sense of accomplishment when it is clean, shiny and sparkly, and often times slightly slippery is just amazing.
So, I decided to put my “mop water” in a spray bottle.
You can pick these up at Walmart for about a dollar. All I did was run super hot water, and add just a little bit of cleaner (you can use anything that you would normally use on your floor). Give it a good shake and you are ready to roll.
Spray on your floor, and mop away!
No bucket. No icky, dirty mop water. Your floor dries fast. Great for cleaning up spills quickly. Good for spot cleaning right before company comes.
When you are done, store under your sink, or with your cleaning supplies. Definitely a floor saver!
This isn’t to say that the floor doesn’t sometimes need a really good hands and knees kind of cleaning–because it still will, occassionally. But, this sure does help me out, a lot!
