Cleaning Floors

I wash my floors the old fashioned way. You won’t find a Swiffer Wet Jet mop in my cleaning closet. What you will find is a bucket, cleaning clothes and a basic household cleaner.

NOPE!! I don’t own a mop either. I did tell you that I clean my floors the old fashioned way meaning I hand wash every inch of my floors. I clean my floors this way by choice. I don’t like dealing with mops since I find that they push any left behind trash around. The other reason is that I don’t like cleaning a mop after each use.

Now that I am getting older, I don’t enjoy putting the extra strain on my back that comes with hand washing a floor. I have come up with a new improved way to mop that is easier on the back.

1# Fill a bucket with HOT!! water and add your favorite household cleaner.

2# Grab your broom and a house cleaning towel.

3# Submerge your broom into the bucket of hot water. Lift the broom out and shake off any excess water.

4# Begin swishing the floor with your broom, stopping to re-submerge the broom in between areas. Be sure to use the broom bristles to brush up spills or dried food.

5# Now drop your towel on the floor. Use the towel and one foot the dry up the water.

Not only do you end up with a clean floor but a clean broom as well.

I would love for you to share your method for cleaning floors and how often you clean them.
