On Cleaning...


 I love my Swiffer products for the weekly cleaning! The long one in the back is a dry mop and it does a fantastic job on wood floors to get all the dust bunnies that tend to run away when using a broom or vacuum.
The short one mops the floor. What I don't like about it is the chemical loaded cleaner that comes with it. Being a barefoot gal in the house, after a mop up, the floor felt sticky and 'chemical-ly.' I use my own solution of water and vinegar that I put in a spray bottle, spraying as I go, switching out with my new BFF...Meleluca. The floors feel CLEAN, CLEAN and I love the smell of Meleluca!
The blue and yellow ones are life major dust time savers...oh. my. word! My sister L introduced me to these. The wand is so thin one can brush behind, in and around hundreds of things VERY effectively. The yellow one is a 360 degree brush and can be 'elbowed' by a button and with an extender, which comes in so handily for out of reach areas without falling off a step stool.
After the kitchen remodel, I spent hours on my hands and knees with a knee pad, literally scrubbing the floor with a Stanley (the best!) scrubby and my new BBF.
Yep...this scrubby! The floor 'before and after' pic showing my clean-up. And yes, my knees paid for it, but my floors look all but new! (the true color of our floor is the first picture)
Last but definitely not the least, is Meleluca's laundry soap. It only takes one tablespoon or one pump squirt per load to wash. The fabric softener smells wonderful and it's all chemical free!
And yes, it suds! :)
       Here is a link to Meleluca if you're interested.
Here's to chemical free cleaning!

Edited Feb 12, 2012 - The swiffer mop broke soon after I posted this and I got a new one. The new ones are much studier than their first model...yea for 'new and improved!'

I have always wondered how the Swiffer dry dust mop worked. I would imagine that it would just push around the dirt { and I have more dirt than dust, from the kids}...but that can't be if it is so popular. Can you explain how it works?

Thank you so much for sharing. What a beautiful space you have created my very first visit here I will follow on my way out so I know my path back here. Perhaps you will find the time to come visit me soon and do the same. I look forward to engaging more throughout the year and beyond. Take care. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

Can't wait to try this fabric softener. I wonder how it works with burlap?

Thank you for visiting, I agree with you black does show that nasty dust! Lucky our island wont have any shelfs for it to lay on, and our granite counter top doesn't show dust, yay

God Bless you,
Laurie
