Hey! :0) How many of you out there like to mop?!
A strange question, you say!? I guess so, but, honestly, I enjoy mopping! No, I do not love doing housework! I have many things I would rather do, and I often view housework as a necessary evil. However, I actually find mopping to be enjoyable!
I think the reason I like it is my supplies! I was adding this to my list of things I'm thankful for one day and I thought I ought to just share it with y'all.
-- In addition, I read and mop at the same time!! Well, actually, I listen and mop at the same time!
So, here it it:
I use my inexpensive, non-toxic all-purpose cleaner and this mop which is fantastic! I just walk around, spray and wipe! :0) Well, sometimes I have to bend down and scrape or add a little more elbow grease (though not quite as often now that the boys are older :))
So, my mop is made by a company called Bona. It has an adjustable length handle and a flat, swiveling bottom which fits under doors! :) And, the best part is that the base has velcro on the underside to which you attach re-usable cleaning pads. I have 4 of them so I don't have to rinse them out while I mop! I just throw them in the wash when I'm done!! Super easy!
This mop also has a dust mop pad as well. I'm not as excited about sweeping -- I think it's the pile I'm left with at the end of sweeping which isn't all that appealing! hahaha! Anyway,...
Here's how to make your own all-purpose cleaner (I use it on my counters as well as my floors: tile and hardwood)
Here's where I got my mop and extra cleaning pads: ***I have the 18" Professional one below.
