I don't know about all ya'll...but Mondays are dedicated to..."trying to recover from the weekend" stuff. That usually entails some amount of straightening, cleaning and trying to figure out what's coming up this week. Not that I don't love cleaning the house...but well...somethings we just have to do are not all that fun. Unless you're one of those people who just love cleaning and if you are one of those people...I don't know whether to salute you or just be angry with you. Hmmmm....
So...anywho...I am getting ready to do some of my work this morning and since I have had such great help and suggestions from my bloggy friends before...I pose this question this lovely Monday morning.
What do you do about mopping?
What I mean is...I live in a lovely rental house that is 90% hard floors of some type. The kitchen is tile (white tile, no less...and let me just say here...WHY WOULD YOU EVER PUT WHITE TILE IN YOUR KITCHEN??? This is beyond my ability to comprehend), the bathrooms are linoleum, and the main living areas, including the front room, family room and hallways are wood laminate. This means I have to care for each one of these surfaces slightly differently. I can't clean the laminate flooring with anything but water. I can't do the tile with just water. On Saturday...I mopped the wood laminate with plain water using the Libman Wonder Mop, I did small sections and then got down with a dry towel and dried it off (If I don't...Hello - Streak City!) Then I emptied my bucket and refilled with water and a little eco-friendly cleaning solution and went to work on the tile and linoleum.
Isn't there a better way???
I hate using the good old sponge mop because it just seems gross and dirty and seems to be a "less effective" way to clean. And when it comes to the laminate floor...I just hate that it takes so blasted long because I have to keep stopping to dry!
Help me Bloggy People!!! Help me!!!
And...thank you in advance for taking pity on me :)
