I spent 3 hours on Friday night with 2 buckets, 4 shamies and a scrub brush cleaning our kitchen floor on my hands and knees. I was nearly in traction come Saturday morning, but the floors shine like a diamond! As much as I love my Shark steam mop, after a year’s worth of kid mess, it just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I researched online, that you could actually use normal laundry detergent mixed with warm water to clean tile floors – it cleaned the grout like nobody’s business and best of all, our house still smells like lavender! I didn’t notice any sticky residue, which I was worried the soap would leave behind, and will most definitely be using detergent for all floor cleanings from now on. Getting the floors clean only scratched the surface of what all needs to be scrubbed in this house…tomorrow, steam cleaning the carpets and then on to washing windows and walls….yes, walls (you’d be amazed what 3 toddlers can do to a wall)…at least I am heading in the right direction!
