I hope all of you in the US had a safe and fun Fourth of July! Ours was a low-key BBQ at home with friends, just how we like it. 🙂 Now it’s back to the routine, eh?
I’m trying to streamline some of my processes these days. I don’t seem to accomplish as much in a day as I used to. So this week, I’m thinking about floors.
A couple of years ago, my husband and I switched some of our floors from carpet to vinyl. This was great for me, as we had indoor/outdoor carpeting in the kitchen and I disliked it…a lot!
Now, two years later, I’m still struggling to find the easiest way to care for these floors. I find I am still attacking the floor twice, once to sweep and once to mop. I’ve been looking at some of the newer products out on the market, like the Swiffer products. I thought they had a wet pad mopper that did it all, just toss the wet pad when it’s done. But I see their system is a dry/wet system. Use a dry pad to pick up dirt and dust, then switch to a wet pad to mop. So still, I’m going over the floor twice.
So I thought I’d ask if any of you have time-saving tips for floor care. Or am I doomed to always do a twice-over to keep our floors clean? Maybe I don’t necessarily need to mop every week, since it’s generally just the two of us (and Dude the cat, who happens to be shedding like crazy right now). Maybe I can just sweep sometimes and I don’t have to be such a freak about floors?
