So as I was pretending to be Cinderella this afternoon while I scrubbed the massive amount of tile in my house, I got to thinking that maybe I should share some tips that I think make this chore a little easier.
1. Rubber gloves are your friend. They save your skin and your nails and enable you to use hotter water. I used to hate them until my mother in law gave me a pair from her secret stash from England. Apparently that's the only place she could find rubber gloves in a size small (It's a long story how she gets rubber gloves from England). These actually fit my hands!
2. Knee pads. I borrowed a pair from my husband's tool box :) They make being on your knees so much easier!
3. Mrs. Meyers Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner. Their slogan is: Smells like a garden, cleans like the dickens! I've been using the Lemon Verbena scent and I love it! It makes the whole house smell fresh!
Seriously, scrubbing floors is one of my least favorite household chores. These little tricks help make it go a little faster. Well, at least a little easier. What tips do you have for cleaning floors?
